More info about the car:
" I think the car was purchased new in Bedford Virginia, but have not tracked down the history yet. The VIN# tag is intact & the fender tag was removed by me for cleaning & decoding. The car was together & running with a small block/auto combo. A friend of mine in Virginia made a deal for the car w/out the running gear, since the body was in such good shape. He intended to convert the car to a big block/4sp set up. His plan also was to change color & interior. So he disassembled the car to ready it for paint. That is when I was able to strike a deal on it before he erased the cars identity. I picked up a small block to go back in it. I have plans to finish the bodywork & get it back into the original colors. Since it was a MODTOP car. The roof seams are rough, but that was common to all vinyl top cars & easy fix. The floors & trunk are in very good shape aside from 2 small repairable spots. One is in the front passenger floor & the other is in a stamped trench in the trunk. All the parts are there, as this was a complete car. including some extras obtained for the rebuild. All the glass is good, but needs some clips for the chrome prior to installing the windshield. "
