Approx. 91,000 miles, original 291 hemi V-8, runs and drives well.
Free of rust, mostly original car except for some minor upkeep over the years such as replacing a water pump and axle bearings. Wiring has been updated, rear bumper re-chromed, teal upholstery replaced with NOS fabric (leather is original). Some of the green paint is starting to wear thin on the fenders -- the black paint may have been redone by the previous owner but we're not 100% sure. Overall the car is closer to #2 condition than #3; dad says #2, a meticulous collector might find tiny things here & there (or might not).
Asking $15k

This car has been part of our family since my father purchased it from a collector in upstate NY in 2000 and has been driven consistently to car shows and weekend drives since then. Numerous show wins/trophies in original/preservation class.
Location of car is Long Beach / Orange County CA.

This car may end up on ebay later but we figured we'd post it here first.
Get in touch if interested and I can email more photos.

Super nice from the pics anyway - doubt that it's any different in person. Looks to be complete also. Probably won't last too long at the price.

Best of luck to the buyer and seller.

I saw this car at a Hernado beach pier square "show" back in May of 2017. Very nice.

Yep, that's the one! Not too many out there and even fewer in this condition. That's my dad in the top photo in the blue jacket and tan cap.

In case anyone is interested, here's a video of this car at a show in El Segundo CA last year (video not made by us) which shows the car's good qualities as well as the minor imperfections.
