The bright red interior is as beautiful as the shapely exterior, and the power leather seats are comfortable. The driver seat bottom had some tears that were repaired and not precisely color matched, but it still looks great. The engine starts right up with a low growl and runs strong and smooth. The automatic transmission shifts flawlessly. Steering and braking are tight and solid.

The body is in excellent condition with no cracks, spidering, or damage. The paint looks fantastic in spite of some little scratches here and there that are barely noticeable. The frame is very solid with no rust. This classic sports car is turn key and ready to go. It's time for you to take the tops off, get in, and drive.

The COLLECTIBLE KING is an advertiser of classic and special interest automobiles--not the owner of the vehicle shown. I personally inspect and photograph each vehicle to provide you with an honest and unbiased assessment. I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase so that you and others will purchase more collectible vehicles through me in the future.


Please remember that when you bid or make an offer, you are entering into a legally binding contract to purchase the vehicle if your bid is the highest (for auctions) or if your offer is accepted (for fixed-price listings). The terms listed below are part of that contract, and your bid or offer constitutes acceptance of these terms.


At least a $500 deposit must be received within 3 days. The balance must be paid within 1 week. Full payment or deposit is accepted in the form of cashier's check, wire transfer, or cash. PayPal is also accepted for the deposit only.


The buyer should arrange their own shipping or pick up the vehicle in person. If desired, I can assist with shipping arrangements or ship the vehicle if the buyer pays all costs in advance.


The vehicle is sold as-is with no warranty expressed or implied. All sales are final. Questions and test drives are encouraged in order to clear up any concerns about the vehicle, but the buyer is advised to do so before bidding or making an offer. Extensive effort is made to inspect the vehicle and report all flaws and features accurately and completely, however, there is always a possibility of errors in the listing or that something was missed during the inspection. The buyer is responsible for making sure the vehicle is what they want prior to bidding or making an offer.

In the event that there is a significant discrepancy between the actual condition of the vehicle and the condition stated in the listing, the seller will--AT THE SELLER'S OPTION--either offer a discount, remedy the problem, or cancel the sale and refund the deposit. Such discounts, remedies, or cancellations will not be offered after the vehicle has been shipped or had ownership transferred to the buyer.
