This is, by inspection and by driving, a very well cared-for original that has been thoughtfully brought up to near-show cosmetic condition. It is not a show car, but a superb driver at half the cost of a restored “ trailer queen.” Car is being sold as-is, no warranties and is worthy of consideration for anyone who wants a terrific looking, excellent running driver.
We welcome your inspection by buyer or their agent. I am in East- Central Pa. - one hour North of Phila. and 1 1/2 hours West of Manhattan. Thanks for looking. – Mike (610) 393-6227
