Restore this car while you drive it. Good running motor, eeds to be slow started and a tune-up after sitting the last 7 years. Hard to find 2 door hardtop. Bought it from the same Southern California owner who owned it for the last 25 years. Push button transmission. Car is 98% complete. Missing a few chrome parts. Dual exhaust. 2-barrel carb. Some rust starting on quarter panels. Driver's door has evidence of bondo. All the glass on car is good. Some rust beginning to show in trunk. Small hole in floorboard on driver's side. Needs complete upholstery work. Bottom of back seat still has original factory plastic on it. Missing inside of glovebox. Obviously after 59 years, here are some dings. Front grille is almost perfect. If you are interested, may have more pictures of engine, tc.. Car will need to be trailered. I will include an engine harness I got on Ebay, he cloth insulation on the electrical wires is worn/exposed, hode Island Wiring Service (401)789-1955 will reconstruct the harness using the old one, o I bought a spare to use instead. Also a modified intake I got on Ebay that allows an Edelbrock 4 barrel carb to be used. And a set of headers I got on Ebay. I have collected most of the missing trim on Ebay. If you have an e-bayrating of less than (10)ten, ontact me, therwise I may cancel your bid. I've been through this before with new members. If you are NOT a real buyer, on't waste my time, r yours. I am listing the car locally, o I have the right to cancel sale. I am easy to work with, ust contact me. NADA guide places this car at $16000 as low retail. I need to sell as I am 100% Disabled Army Veteran with declining health, need to let someone else get her back on the road before its too late.

Thanks, uis 915-843-7897
