Here is Your Chance to Own A True Classic: Think of This as a GREAT Early Xmas Present to Someone You Love – Like You Perhaps
1966 was the first major styling change in this iconic American luxury car since 1960. This classic royal maroon convertible with only 84. 29 miles was purchased in July 2014 from a private seller who purchased it from a collector who had owned and stored the car for the previous 44 years. The factory ski / luggage rack is a rare and seldom seen option.
The convertible top is original and other than a few pinholes. in great shape. goes up and down with ease and is water-tight. (NOTE: Top cycle is currently out of phase but correctible). The tires are also original and will likely need replaced if the car is to be driven much.
The gas tank is unknown and should be inspected and cleaned or replaced. However. the car starts right up with a temporary fuel cell and sounds great (video available). The brakes will need to be replaced immediately as they will NOT stop the car. I have a new master cylinder conversion kit ($180) and related hardware that will be sold with the car.
The interior is in good condition. There is a musty smell from years of storage. The original carpets are in good shape. The cream-colored leather seats are in good shape front and back for being nearly 50 years old: no tears. rips or excessive signs of wear. The dash is free of cracks and fading. All electric windows and vents work freely with the exception of driver's window. The glass is in good shape. The radio. antenna and clock work. Likewise the headlights except high beams. Replacements ($90) to be sold with the car. One turn signal lamp needs to be replaced and the driver's door interior handle needs attention.
The only significant known negative is some rust in the lower portion of the left front quarter panel and behind the rear wheels. The trunk is clean and solid – see photos. Likewise the floors to the best of my ability to inspect them.
While other financial obligations (and a 1987 M6) force this sale. reasonable bids are expected. the reserve price has been reduced YET AGAIN but still reflects the opportunity to own a car that is actually increasing in value (see http://www. hagerty. com/valuationtools/HVT/VehicleSearch/Report?vc=84932 or see attached graph. Even in “fair” condition. the reduced reserve is well below the average value of $21. 00. It could easily command MUCH with some attention and relatively small investment.
