    $_57 (22).JPG Well I've been watching this Ebay auction since it was listed. I had to have it. Well I won it. Here are some pictures. The original owner is still alive in his later 70's. I'm hoping to get all the full history on her. All I know now that it was built in 1959. More details as soon as it arrives! $_57 (10).JPG $_57 (1).JPG $_57 (3).JPG $_57 (17).JPG $_57 (14).JPG $_57 (4).JPG $_57 (8).JPG $_57 (16).JPG $_57 (12).JPG $_57 (15).JPG $_57 (13).JPG $_57 (6).JPG $_57 (19).JPG

    Wow. I was watching that too, until it went out of my comfort range. You're in Cleveland, maybe I'll at least get to see it.

    Candy Coupe, I'd say...That thing is sweeter than Bear meat!
    Love the nerf bars...Dash is amazing... (Is that a '40-'48 cross steering bolted to that plate?)
    Olds wheel...Era upholstery...Car REEKS of cool.

    Yeah it hit as high as I was willing to go but I had to take a chance on it. Luckly it stayed in my range. I wont be changing anything. Probably wont even wash it lol!

    Greetings, fellow NE Ohioans. Hope to see you and your new ride at some shows next summer. Oh, and don't go off and paint it! Love that worn-in look. Too cool.:cool: Hope you take Denns1989's approach to caring for that car. Preserve it, don't redo it.:)

    Very cool hot rod! Glad you hung in there! Judging by the paint shadows I'd say the tail lights have been updated from what they were - probably Pontiacs - when the car was originally built. I hope you'll change it back.

    Not yet. It's supposed to have a original bench in it. Hoping for more pictures soon. I should have it here beginning of next week
