The League is honored and proud to present you with this car! It is a real treat to be able to host this auction. I will do my best to describe this vehicle to the best of my ability. Take the time to review the youtube videos that I have included in the auction. I hope that your bid is an informed and serious bid.

We cannot handle any of the shipping arrangements for this auction. I can however assist you with the shipping arrangements and I can make the vehicle available for shipping.

This car is on display at the Country Club Mall in Cumberland, Maryland and is available for inspection during business hours.

I have listed many vehicles on eBay and I try to do everything possible to make certain you are thrilled with your purchase.

The Childrens League website

This is an original car! The car comes with a matching numbers 265CID engine.

This is a rare color combination that is absolutely beautiful.

I have driven this car out 50 or so miles and it is a pure joy to drive this car. I get so many people waving and yelling how nice the car is. If you do not want any attention, do not buy this car. It draws attention at every stop light, and every parking lot. I have even had people stop as the car was parked at my house. You get to hear many stories of the cars they had in the past and a lot of requests to sit in the car. This car is FUN!

The condition of the car is in great condition. It is not a show quality car. It is an older restoration car. The paint looks great from a distance but as you get closer, you can start seeing the age of the paint as well as the quality of the paint.

According to the body tag, this is the original color scheme as well as the interior.

I have done a complete Maryland inspection on the car and there are only minor things on the car that would keep it from passing a complete safety inspection.

I can point out that the radio comes on but there is no audio.

The wipers are not working. The switch feels like it is not working.

The odometer is not working. The speedometer works but the odometer does not.

When I drove the car I noticed that the front brakes need adjusted due to the fact that it pulls to the left when you hit the brakes.

This car has a 3 speed on the column and it shifts perfectly

The car starts and runs very smooth. No misses or issues at all. The engine is a reported numbers matching 265 CID engine. The engine has had a complete rebuild by a local engine builder. It is a great running car.

Video of Exterior

The undercarriage is in better than average condition. It appears as though there has been no work done to the car undercarriage other than I can tell that it did at one time have a floor shifter installed and then it was put back to original and you can see the patch over the floor shifter hole.

I have enjoyed working with The League on this auction and I am sure you will enjoy this action. You can see a video of the engine and hear the car running here.

Vehicle Starting and Running

This car is a joy to drive and would be a dream to own. You will not be disappointed with this car. It is sure to be a great deal to the buyer and the proceeds for your purchase will be going to a great organization.

The League of Children are excited about this auction and are watching it. The car is on display and there is some local interest in the car.
