I love this car. I've been doing this my whole life and I'm going to tell you this one is exceptional. Fit, finish and function is awesome. Everything I tried works down to the night watch lights, seatback release, 8-track player, light on the mirror and on and on. The list of options, amount of documentation really sets this 442 apart from the others. The factory colors are highly desirable. I even love how the car sounds, deep and lopey. This could be in the world's best collection or in your garage. Whoever gets it will not be disappointed.

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 detail. **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.
