If this is a pic of the car as it looks today and the rest of the car looks the same you have made an incredible find. Congrats.

Great find Mel, look forward to seeing and hearing about this awesome discovery...

Make sure to post pic's with the horn slots....

Hopefully the super rare and odd stuff from the very early cars are still on this one.

If the posted image is of this car, it appears that it could have already been restored by a PO and hopefully they didn't chance to many things....

If its the image of the car and it's all original....OMG!!!

Now that you have my attention, let's see those slots!

I hope it's in better shape than #375.

I say we start a pool on the last 2 digits of the VIN. I pick 76, as in 00769W100276.

Closest to, without going over, wins! (Tip o' the hat to Bob Barker!)
