The Holy Grail of the early 442 -- 4 speed, Tri Carb, convertible! One of only 240 with this combination.Incredibly original car showing less than 50K miles. Early build date -- week 2 of October 1965 and body #509 from the Lansing plant probably makes this one of the first Tri Carb 442s built. Has rare E code 400 block.Runs and drives like a dream, body is as tight as you would expect a car with this mileage to be. Interior appears to be completely original -- shows very well with some patina as to be expected. Paint seems to be a mix of original and some repaint -- again, not fresh out of a paint booth, but shows well and as expected with age and mileage. Everything works as it should.Color combination is amazing -- Provincial White with Red interior, set off by new radial Redlines.
