Seller's notes: "This car was destroyed in a vehicle fire while driving in 2007. The fire started in the fuse box at the engine side of the firewall, burning most of the external engine parts (distributor, alternator, etc.) and spread via the tunnel to the passenger compartment and totally destroyed the car's interior. The body, trunk, wheels, suspension and internal of the engine were only slightly damaged or left intact. The car has been garage stored since the fire and would make a great parts car or a project car for a complete rebuild. Jack, original Stromberg carb. and manifold, SS wheel trim rings are undamaged and included."
