Description:

This is a really good car. It is good in the best possible way: It is a reliable, olid driver that you can toss your kids in and head to the beach. If the kids have sand on their shoes or spill ice cream on the upholstery, t does not matter. This car can be driven and enjoyed, s the previous owner has for the last decade and create wonderful memories for you and your family. It would be a tragedy to restore this car. If it were perfect, ou wouldn't enjoy it. You wouldn't drive it; you would enshrine it in your personal museum- and that's fine, f that's what you want. You wouldn't let your kids eat ice cream in the back, nd you wouldn't bring home a trunk full of sea shells from your beach vacation. It is the perfect car to keep at your summer cottage or your farm. A car to view the changing of the seasons in the fall. A car to drive in the homecoming parade. This is not a car for car shows. This is a car to be part of your family.

To all of you who want a perfect car built during the Kennedy administration that has never been driven, ever been enjoyed, s all matching numbers, as flawless chrome, lawless paint and a wrinkle free top, hose cars are available on Ebay as well. For substantially more money. As noted above, verything that matters has been put right. You can toss the keys to anyone and they can drive it with ease. The radio does not play. The heater is disconnected. The fuel gauge works when it wants to. All of these things can be addressed if you wish to. Or not.

The reserve on this car is about what you'd pay for a used Toyota Camry or some other practical and forgettable automobile.

This car is also a good solid start for a person wishing to build what are commonly referred to now as resto-mods. This great finned beauty could be nicely kitted out with a modern driveline and all the features of a modern car. Or not.
