    $40 yes "$40.000 ", $40,000 no .

    A Commander properly restored would approach this price ($40K) with the pedal car.

    That car belongs to Charlie Attaway's of the North Georgia chapter. It is nice. I can't imagine it bringing $40K though.

    A car with an asking price in that range should at least have correct hub caps and correct looking wide whitewall tires.

    And why do so many cars have incorrect shift knobs? Those have been available reproduced for years.

    Black rear fender welting? Someone did not do their research.

    Sure is nice looking overall, though. Love Black Cherry.

    The rear fender gravel guards are 47-49 guards. 50 and 51 are smooth and larger. I normally do not pick cars apart but for top dollar things like this should be correct
