Original owner was Lincoln Hotel in Rochester Pennsylvania. The original Dealership name is on inside of door.

The owner we bought it from changed the distributer cap and wires and we have the originals.

The 276-cid hemi engine generated 160 hp new. Powerflight transmission.

Comes with the shown car cover. Always garage kept and covered as long as we have owned it.

Interior is in great condition.

We drive it to some shows that are close. Drives very well. Transmission shifts and handles like a big car of its era. We all love to drive it. We have won awards locally for best original car. It has been used in local commercials and wedding pictures.

#2 $33,400 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is "excellent."

#3 $23,100 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. "Good" is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.

My opinion is the car is somewhere between a 2 and 3 according to the above Hagerty ratings.

Some of the chrome needs redone.

Buy it now, $21000, No reserve.

Pick up is preferred for this sale. I would be willing to trailer the car to the buyer, depending on the distance and and negotiated price.
