This car has been the recipient of numerous awards since its completion including a first place and best in class at the 2010 Olds Club of America Nationals and best engine compartment at the Hemmings Cruise in 2012.
The car currently shows the usual signs of an 8 year old restoration that has been driven. There are minor stone chips, scratches, undercarriage and engine compartment dirt and a few fluid drips. The radio is not hooked up and the clock does not work. It still shows extremely well and is considered a solid #2 car by Hagerty. It performs smoothly and quietly and we do not hesitate to drive it anywhere. It comes with a car cover, owners manual, complete jack and original spare. Restoration photos are available on site. I can answer any questions about the restoration as I was present and involved in the process. We are not interested in trades.
