12 shots, and not one of the front end. I like the disc wheels.

Its a sweet looking car! I have no interest in such an old car but if it showed up next door I would be tempted.....but prolly not at 12K.

No one is buying this without a visit. They will roll it out into the light of day and start negotiations based on the results. Looks pretty neat for the folks that are into this sort of thing. If, on the other hand, he was to ebay it - better photos all around would be a good idea.

If I had this and could get it running, I'd drive it to work at least once a week, during the good seasons. It is simply too cool not to.

The tough decision is whether to restore it or not. The patina is so nice, and they are original only once. I think I'd do the mechanicals, and leave the body alone.
