Vehicle History

Vehicle Details

    The appraiser verifies that the car appears nearly all original. The vehicle has been restored at some point in its life, and the restoration was extremely professional. The materials utilized are not matches for the original article but are extremely tasteful. All gauges appear to be original and have been appropriately reconditioned. The only non-original non-correct part on the vehicle is the turn-signal stalk, which may have needed to be replaced for DMV compliance so that the vehicle could be registered.  All badging and hood ornaments are the original items and show the appropriate wear for items of this age. 

    There is no visible rust or corrosion on the vehicle. The paint is nearly immaculate. The restoration appears to have utilized the original paint formulation. There are some minor cosmetic blemishes, which can be easily resolved with the appropriate rubbing compound. All accessories are in working order. The engine appears to have been removed and completely rebuilt at some point. The work on the engine appears to be excellent, and “show-correct”.  

    There appears to be no rust or rot on the vehicle. The trunk pan is in pristine condition (a known issue with this model) and appears to be original. There are no issues with the vehicle which would be detrimental to the value. With some minor effort, this appraiser believes this could be a Concurs-level vehicle. This is an excellent entry-level collector car, which is currently turn-key for the new owner. This is not a chopped vehicle. 

    This variant has a higher value due to the 5 Window Coupe configuration. The interior has been appropriately restored with correct materials. The gauges and switchgear have also been restored to near factory-new condition. Two aftermarket gauges were installed appropriately. Call us for a test drive Delray Beach Motors 561-910-4911.
