Not if I could beat you to it !!!!

What a highly optioned car for '58. Hate to admit it but I like the black cars better than my white one. Wasn't the correct color Tuxedo black - not Mason black?

I'm not much on the chrome accents though - might leave the chrome power dome accent.

Anders,

It's not the 40K for the car but the extra $$$ to fly you over to check it out to make sure the suspension is done correctly. Us mere leaf spring mortals could be "taken for a ride" without your expertise in that area.

It is only missing a couple of "Major" options as I see it.

Cool

Jim the "Elvira" option would only get me in trouble with my wife. Considering there were only about 2800 58 converts produced the price is not too far out of line providing it is done correct and bought by a true collector. Mike you should go for it and then you would have " his and hers " Raven blacks

Nice looking car. I don't know what cars are worth anymore.

I'm bothered by picture #29.The mismatched screws on the radio/AC panel make me wonder how "meticulously" the restoration was done. Not that I've never done that, but I didn't pass it off as meticulously either.
