1961 DeSoto Coupe HardTop-numbers matching original(block stamped with mfg date)

Testing the waters

Up for sale is a 1961 DeSoto Coupe/HardTop all original. the original mopar motor stamped with mfg. date 1961). Prior to 1968 VIN numbers were not added to the motors but this is the original motor-i'm the second owner of the vehicle and the person who restored it from the original owner/condition it was in.   50. 23 original verifiable miles on this coupe. Please see paperwork and state tag on window.

It has been a 4 year restoration that has been all done by shops here locally in Indiana.   It's been a year since completion.   The motor and transmission have been rebuilt since everything else has been rebuilt or replaced.   Every bearing. seal. component. line-you name it has been replaced and when it couldn't be found it was rebuilt by a professional.   Receipts are available.   Car runs and drives amazing!

Given the rarity of the car-I cannot find another to compare pricing but I'm posting to test the waters and see what the market says.  


FYI the car is a bit dirty/dusty. I was cleaning my garage the past few days and its been parked under my garage port so there are leafs on it and dust-pictures were taken on my phone.
Ask any questions before bidding or buying.   Thank you for looking. I will be updating the add as people reach out and ask for some information that is missing just to avoid repetition of questions and what not.

Vehicle is being sold locally as well. auction may be terminated due to local sale.
