This car has no manufacture date code listed on the MEL plate. Car was purchased in Pennsylvania in 1991 by Mary Ellen's late father. It was not running and was trailered to Orlando, Florida in 1991. It was then stored in a garage until a couple of years ago when Mary Ellen's cousin Dave Perry got it running again. It now runs smoothly and is a near mint example of a highly-optioned top-of-the-line Corsair convertable.
