Vehicle Condition - - I have personally inspected and photographed this vehicle. I can tell that this car is an exceptional vehicle with very low mileage. I invite anyone to inspect this car in the Chicago area and determine for yourself that this car is truly in great condition. Seeing is really believing.
Exterior and interior are in "like new" condition with no known defects whatsoever.
This is truly an opportunity for a discerning collector to acquire a car that will surely become a significant part of motoring history of the late 50's.
