This is a special car with a very special story.
There are a few things that some say can add to, or detract from; the original story and history of this amazing find. Of course, This would depend on your personal opinion. The facts are as follows:
The original owner did Not have a garage at his home and stored the car under an outside tarp when not in use. Because of this, the body shows considerable ware as shown in the photos.
The interior is immaculate. The engine bay is beautifully original.
The original hood was stolen from the car in 1979 at the original owners home in South Huntington NY. A replacement was installed and has been on the car since that time. We do not know where the replacement hood came from. The color difference and match to the car is noticeable.
