    That’s news to me. Mine reads 125.

    Someone is going to get a real bargain. Of course, we really don't know what its mechanical condition is. The car looks really clean though.

    It is newer upholstery but is certainly well-done, isn't it? BP

    Nah, Gary; it's only a 2-bbl.

    Now if it was a President Classic, it would have had a 4-bbl standard equipment. BP

    I'm glad it's not closer to me or the temptation would overwhelm me & it would end up in my garage! I could imagine what heads would turn driving down route 66 in this !

    Oh...my....I'm positively swooning under this car. I'd probably slap a (removable) I LIKE IKE sticker on the bumper, and simply drive it around town. In fact, if I didn't already have my GT Hawk, I would be sorely tempted to get this President in office.

    Wish I had the cash! This one is VERY much my cup-o-tea!

    It looks like a very nice, original car. I don't know how strong the market will be for it. If it was a Y6 instead of a W6, I may be interested.

    They put a battery in it (without a hold down), but they do not say if the engine runs. Who knows what the car needs after 58 years of storage - at least brakes and exhaust, but drivetrain would be a big question.

    This looks like a good deal for someone who wants one of these --

    Only 33,000 miles and $6,800 OBO according to the ad -- but not licensed since 1960 --

    https://eastky.craigslist.org/cto/d/...596412650.html

    Not my cup of tea -- but a very nice looking car --
Working...
