This thing is gorgeous, and according to the ad, it's had one repaint and one redo of the interior. A Fireflite too! Definitely not perfect as some of the pics show (small area of paint bubbles/rust on rocker). Not really sure about that price, seems a bit high, but it is a dealer so I guess that's to be expected.

Great to see Bo selling some of his inventory to the general public!

I sold him a bunch of complete car wiring harnesses before I closed my business. While I assume that most of these were for pre sold cars we may see some available. I wish I was in a position to buy one!!!

He's not a "dealer", Miles - he's a restorer who specializes in FL's. Bo Malefors, to be specific.

Could be a consignment, but Bo's word is beyond reproach.

Surely we've all seen dlyle's four-page thread about this car on the main page of the site?

Not sure where Bo became involved, maybe it's just to make sure the "right eyes" are on this sale. But it is one absolutely top-shelf original FL convert, no doubt about that.

Bo is likely just a middle man, someone that can connect international buyers/sellers. Knowing bo as I do, he's making very little. He just loves connecting people.

Ah, I just assumed with the name 'Copperstate Classics' that he was a dealer.
