    Default 3913 For Sale! Need to make room


    It has recently been the subject of a mild restoration; paint and partial chrome. The matching Blue and White leather interior has been completely reupholstered including the seats, dash, carpet, headliner, door panels, visors, and glove box.

    The engine has been meticulously maintained and starts with no hesitation. Completely rebuilt starter and generator. The carburetor has been overhauled along with a new timing set, igniter, and fuel tank hoses. The fuel tank was removed and cleaned to ensure there's no corrosion. The radiator has been overhauled along with the water pump. Also, new vent hoses, fuel filler hose, radiator cap, transmission seal kit, and vacuum lines have been added. When the new belts were put on, the original belts were discovered to have been the existing set! Due to this and the lack of wear on the brake pedal, it appears that the mileage shown, at under 33,000 - is believed to be original mileage.

    Serious offers only. Ask questions. Asking 45k negotiable OBO

    While I like the current exterior and interior color scheme, according to the database, they do not match the original colors (white exterior, brown interior). How much does that typically affect the value? It can affect the value a lot with other cars.

    Generally as long as the scheme is a correct one it does not affect the pricing. Use of incorrect materials or incorrect installation (vinyl or mitered bolsters) is far more important.

    As far as judging is concerned it should be an available Mark II color, but, unlike Henry Ford, William Clay would paint it any color your want. Elvis wanted a leather headliner, and they gave him what he wanted.

    As far as resale goes, one shouldn't care what the next owner wants as it can all be changed again. It's just paint and leather.
