I recently hauled this nice old girl out of Libertyville IL. It came from the original family with the original bill of sale and every bice of documentation from new. The little girl is the 84 year old I bought it from. Fun stuff.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Nice looking survivor... Are your plans to mechanically restore it or a complete restoration. Nice way the car "found you" also.. We all should be so lucky.

No restoration on this one. The engine isn't stuck, so it should run. The plan is to clean it and preserve the patina. It needs a correct radiator cap. The original got lost on the road and they bought a lousy repo back in the 70's The mileage on the ODO is accurate.
