roll off the assembly line were all identical. Each one was fully
loaded, painted Cotillion white, hubcaps are white and have red and
blue pinstripes. Inside each car has white leather with red piping

This car is a part of automotive history. They did start making
convertibles again years later but there will never be a big boat
like this ever again. Only 200 made total and I'm sure a few did
not survive. Here is your opportunity to own something special that
only a few people in the world can have.
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure
your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do
a walk around video that explains the car's condition in
**These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a
particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car.
Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the
showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you
will be given a 1 year membership.
