Original Red on Red car with white soft top.   What an amazing find. Purchased from the second owner in 2015. The second owner purchased the car from the original owner in 1971 with 21,307 original miles. It was stored in the barn pictured in Indiana since. In other words stored for 46 years prior to a two year restoration. The seconded owner said the original owner side swiped the lower left rocker behind the front wheel when he blew a tire and ended up in a ditch. The left side of the car pictured was original paint.
