I bought this car in Pine Island (Ft. Myers) Florida and drove it 1800 miles to Maine.  It is in excellent mechanical condition.  The repaint is presentable.  Interior is poor.  I plan to have it re-done in something "fun".  Body has been repaired.  Not a fine enough example to bother restoring, but a very fun and presentable "driver".

Note the appropriate 1959 sample (000 000) license plate.
