Cool

Martin that is certainly a rare 59 and from the pictures seems to be in excellent shape. The Raven black exterior and black & white interior combo make it pop
Good catch for someone wanting a Squarebird convert..

The paint peel around the data plate sort of makes me suspicious about the original paint claim - could be - but I'm probably being overly cautious.

Only reason I noticed it is that the paint around the data plate looks similar to mine which has had one re-spray in 1976.

The other point that makes me want to look at the car with a fine tooth comb is the rarity claim. Only 1 of 2 - really? I'm guessing they mean there were only 2 Raven Black Convertible Tbirds with manual trans built in 1959??? Ummm - maybe.

Wonder how you can make that claim when there are no records to back it up??

Don't know about the convertible tops on these cars - is a Haart top OEM or replacement?

I do think it's a really super nice car - hope it's all that is stated.

My problem is I'd want to drive it.............
