The paint work is good overall but there some defects in the body and paint as shown in pictures. It is not a show winner quality. Very high gloss but has imperfections. The engine runs very well. The car drives well but could be a lot better with a proper robust clutch system. The car was purchased on line by a high profile car collector that I know about a year ago. He was disappointed in car for the $86,000 price tag. The seller did not own up to his errors in online marketing and disappeared. The owner decided not to add this to his collection and to liquidate at a large discount. His loss is your gain. We have set the reserve on what we believe the car to be worth after our inspection. It will make a fantastic additional to anyone’s collection at this price It is a 1968 vehicle sold As Is but in “Good” condition. Shipping will be at the buyer’s expense. We will need to speak with the winning bidder at auction close to arrange pickup.
