It appears to be a 61 700 sedan that has had the center section removed to make a shorty. I'm not really in to such modifications.

A fellow in Michigan that worked at GM built one that wasn't as short and looks better. He drove it for years. A fellow in L.A. CA. bought it and then sold it to a person in San Diego. CA. That was a few years back.

Looks like it. They apparently take no better care of the pool than this car.

The car is actually fairly close to where I live. It does have the 140 HP engine, but it still looks ugly. If the guy didn't want so much for it I might get it for the engine.

I ought to be worth as much as $600-700 if the engine is a running complete 140.

Yes, I would pay that, but the guy wants $2000.00. That isn't going to happen!

Add a custom bent roll bar and a snap on convertible top like the old British cars.
