Here's an interior shot and an exterior shot.

I'll use them for now because in the pics it's still in the seller's garage and because he is not a member here I want to respect his privacy.

Remember, this is in as-found condition, absolutely nothing has been done to the car. The buyer hasn't even heard it run.

It just looks like one of those driven seldom, driven gently, maintained fastidiously type of cars. I'll bet it has a 283 and it purrs quietly. If the body is original and as nice as it appears, this car is in amazing shape.

That is pretty much the plan. Get some decent pictures, get the story written up, and unwrap it then when the new owner is better prepared and has it settled in.

Yes to all comments other than John hasn't heard it run yet. Appears to be all original.

And the other thing is, I don't like the idea of taking the light away from that car at the top of this page right now. That wagon is likely the only one left like it. Every time I log in I marvel at how beautiful it is.

It's crazy that people had the money and space to have a car like this, take good care of it and seldom use it.

The teaser photos sure do look purdy.

And those cool plastic seat covers....

The whole car is likely pretty much brochure picture quality other than the engine paint which goes bad in the first 500 miles I bet.

I hope to see it in person next year.

Given some of the beautiful survivor cars here (I would include both yours and this month's feature car as two such examples), it must be something truly special for you to express such enthusiasm.

Looking forward to the details!



 



Mark, this thing makes my car look like a project car...

I just spent considerable time on the phone with the new owner. There should be some updates hopefully in the next week or so. I assure you it will be worth the wait!


 You are being way too humble about your car!  It is a beauty in its own right!

I saw the teaser pics of this survivor and all I can say is I can't wait to see more pics and read its story!  Of course I can be patient... but not too patient!  lol

Looks like a nice little Christmas present for the new owner!!

Actually, it's John's wife's car, but I am betting if he talks nice she will let him sit in it and make engine noises as long as he doesn't start it.

He said she has fallen in love with the car, and I can't blame her. This is the kind of car that it would be fun to take out on a nice day and replicate some brochure pictures with.

Hopefully if all falls in place it can be featured sometime in the new year.

"SHUT THE FRONT DOOR", I can't wait to see more pics, and hear all bout this car!

I'm still blown away at what we have at the top of the page right now, and now this car turns up, its a great time for Canadian Poncho!

Agreed, the B bodies are on a roll right now. And 66 b bodies seem to be leading the pack (as they should!)
