    The seats were done in the original color and pattern. If they were done in a quality vinyl, I think that I would accept them as-is.
    Reminds me of an SDC International First Place Packard Hawk that has vinyl, not leather, done in the original pattern for the seats.

    I see the buyer's been buying Hawk stuff recently, also bought from Bob Petersen, and a couple things from JDP last July. Anyone know who it might be?

    It'd be interesting to hear more about the car.

    I'm beginning to think more like JP everyday. I came close to hitting the BIN. The BIN price was $12,500. The vinyl seats saved me.

    Unless one was buying it to immediately re-sell for a higher dollar, its a car someone can enjoy as a 'rolling restoration'. Once the bank account is built up again in a years time or so, then the chroming and re-upholstering can be done in stages. In 2 years, the lucky owner will have a correctly done, mint Speedster.

    I would have had a severe quandary had I seen that auction before it ended, having already collected most of the chrome for my coupe... only thing I don't like about the black and white car is that it's an automatic. I suppose that could be fixed.

    'Sure could, Nate: That rusty, black & white, documented factory overdrive Speedster I had in the photograph at the top of The Co-Operator column a couple months last year, is still sitting right where it was a year ago, north of Bloomington IN a couple miles on the east side of old Indiana State Road 37.

    Is it blue-collar comedian Bill Engle who says, "Here's your sign?" BP

    I'd bet a beer this car would be the better buy in the long run.

    BTW, you only should only think like me when you are concerned about the dollars and cents. If you just love the car, the fact that you'll be buried in it makes no difference if you don't intend to sell it.
