I had one of these! It was powered bya 240 CID straight six with a 3-speed column shift. Used it to carry band equipment when we played locally. It was a former fleet car used by the state education department. (IllinoisState University) the only option it hadwas a heater. My first wife and I put ina radio with antenna. Other than that, the car was T-totally original. We drove it about a year before I traded it for a '68 Plymouth Satellite 2-door HT. The man I traded it to used it as a parts chaser until Justin's tinworms ate the frame to the point he had to scrap it. Sure is great to see one again! Wish Ihad it now!
Another vehicle reminding me of what one could see during the late 1970s in NY/NJ. Add a little rust to the quarter panels and I would believe I stepped back in time.
I'd call that paint condition and patina is spot on. Plenty of stories to tell without making you said. The straightness of those vast sides is inspirational. From the side, I really like it. Nice roof color on that angle too!
