ID:	1733755The eBuy-it-now convertible arrived last Thursday. It's a 20 footer. From what I can tell (production order is on the way) it was originally white and is now wearing a red overcoat. There are some bubbles in the front fenders, but other than that the body appears rock solid, as would be expected for a southwestern car. There was little history from the previous owner, however there was an owners manual and receipt for a Kraco am-fm cassette radio that was purchased in Glendale, AZ in 1991. Does the car sound familiar to anyone down that way?

    The interior is decent, obviously it has been redone since 1961, but needs a good cleaning. The rear window is foggy and needs to be replaced. The top is okay.

    The engine is a 1963 "P" code 289 with a 4 bbl carb. It has fairly new dual exhaust with glasspacks and runs loud and strong.

    It needs tires and brake work to be a driver. Here are a few photos.

      Good news. 'Glad it arrived safely and was close enough to expectations (reading between the lines!) to be acceptable. BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Ayn Rand:
      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

      G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
