Hey all, Just picked up this little gem yesterday. It's a 100% original, untouched survivor (Interior, paint, trunk mat, even the muffler!). Every single thing on this car is OG with the exception of a fresh engine rebuild. I actually found it here on the HAMB and huge thanks to nash510 for preserving this beauty! We were delivering my buddy's 27 T and this car was only 4 miles from where we were going so we stopped on the way. I instantly fell in love, bought it and followed them on to the drop off. The guy who bought the roadster was freaking out on the car and offered me more than I paid to leave it there. He was really freaking over the car and was adamant that I sell him the car on the spot. Here's where it gets weird... ...I said no! Now for those of you in the So Cal car club scene who know me as 'Trader Joe' from the Lifters know damn well I never turn down profit, especially for 10 minutes of work/fun. It felt really weird being totally sure that I wouldn't sell it for any profit at that moment. So we get home and start going through the old docs that were in it and found several of it's first registration cards from 64-65-67-68. The car was first owned by a couple here in my city of El Cajon, less than 4 miles from my house! Even stranger, the orginal black plates from '64 end in 971. My birthdate is 9/71. WEIRD DAY!!!
