Family health issues dictate sale. Nice driver quality two tone maroon paint.This car came from Herb Bells collection. Mechanically sound. Now located in Melbourne Florida ,Central east coast. Drive it away, no trailer needed!  Overdrive and 4:11 rear end. Never rusted ( rust proofed when new).  Never restored but many repairs including engine Overhaul, clutch shocks etc. etc. through the years. I would call it a "survivor".  Make cash offer. PLEASE no tire kickers or dreamers.

     First buyer with $45K drives it home. MUCH more than that spent on parts and machine work . I paid 44K from the Bell estate several years ago, Overhauled the engine, new clutch, shocks, motor mounts, tires, brakes, Pertronix ignition. Optima batteries, Sway bar and Panhard bar bushings, restored radio, hydraulic window cylinders, NOS Fog lights,NOS clock, NOS carburetor,  and other stuff I forgot about !! A box full of receipts.

    Another 3K gets an enclosed 22 foot trailer with winch, compressor, tie downs, torsion bar hitch, LED lights,roof vents wired for 120VAC, new brakes, new electric tongue jack, and new on board battery.

    trailer is 1999.
    As stated above...... has newer brakes and tires, electric winch, electric tongue jack, compressor ,roof vents, ceiling lights, on board battery and wired for 120VAC. LED tail lights. spare wheel and tire. Matching key Locks for all doors, multiple tie downs with nylon straps.
    If someone is serious, I will take some pictures. Trailer is not for sale alone. I prefer to sell with the convertible.
