This car was built in Los Angeles in the third week of February, 1965.
This is the second car I bought on eBay. I bought it from a seller in Montana; it was originally purchased in New Mexico.
The car was completely restored in about a year and a half. The restoration included disassembly of the car, media blasting the body, replacing minimal rusted areas with new metal, powdercoating the convertible top frame and all engine sheet metal, new interior, new top, new shocks, rebuild of motor and transmission, rebuild of brakes, new gas tank, rebuild of carb and turbo, replated bumpers, much new trim, rebuild of instrument cluster and, oh yeah, a respray. The top, dash, carpet, factory pinstripe and half the steering wheel are navy blue.
