In a time where recent appreciation has brought cars to market with descriptions of various levels of accurateness it is wonderful to stumble upon an example for which it can be objectively demonstrated to be what it is purported to be. Certainly it is refreshing to see hyperbole kept in check and nonsensical terms such as “all original, just restored,” absent. And I wish I had a dollar for every car I looked at which was described as being low miles but which has already had replacement upholstery, (sometimes 20 years ago!) which brings us to our subject car.

Essentially a one owner car(more accurately ‘one family’ due to probate) with air-tight provenance (of which even the original, cancelled check which was written for the car in 1969 is present). Includes the original owner’s book packet, warranty plate, service record portfolio and even the radio delete plate for the dash!

The original seats, carpet, door panels, dash and wood all support her 55,000 original miles! Nearly “time-machine” original and sympathetically serviced in our workshops to be ready for tours or pleasure driving. This authentic example has not suffered at the hands of the inexperienced or those looking for a quick profit and will be a welcome addition to any portfolio or collection. She still has 100% of her original factory undercoating and even traces of the shipping Cosmoline (seen as the root-beer colored areas underneath). Please scroll all the way to the right of the photo slideshow to see those of the original, rust-free undercarriage.

Vintage automobiles like this one which can back up the descriptions made about them are as “rare as feathers on octopi.” – Brian
