Investment grade, one of one, numbers matching, unrestored survivor. 350/270 engine. Muncie M21 close ratio 4 speed manual. Never been apart except for new low mass clutch/flywheel/throwout bearing/pilot bearing. Factory power steering and brakes. Factory AC. Factory tilt/telescope wheel, Factory 3 point seat belts. Excellent condition. t has been properly maintained, always garaged and washed regularly, driven every 2 weeks to Cars&Coffee Richmond, and not raced or abused.
The car's value has increased at approximately $18 per day over the last 3 years (reference Hagerty valuation tools). Properly driven and maintained, it is projected to continue to increase at that rate. Why? Three reasons. First, it runs on pump (low octane, no lead) gas. Earlier vehicles need 100 octane leaded gas, which is becoming more and more difficult to find. Second, it was this car which was in the dealers showrooms when the current new retirees were in high school, and it has the options that they need to enjoy the car. Third, it is a 4 speed convertible in the absolute most desirable color combination and chrome bumpers on both ends.
It's beautiful. It's fun. It's an excellent investment, and it's priced right.
The exhaust sound is intoxicating for car enthusiasts. It barks at idle and under acceleration, but is near silent at cruise speeds. The car will take you back to a simpler time when we drove just for the fun. Other drivers give thumbs up and roll down their windows to listen to it. Everybody wants it in their homecoming and July 4th parades. When you arrive in it, people assume that you are an automotive authority.
