Very interested in the hood.

Hi 75CVCC - can you post your email address here? I won't publish it so it will never appear on the blog, but then I can contact you about the hood.
Thanks.

Hi there! Super bummed I missed this opportunity. This was my first car and I have such great memories of it. I have enjoyed all of your pictures - recognize the key and fuel gauge.

I have been looking for one of these for Sunday driving and to appease my mid-life crisis!

If the deal fell through or the buyer changed their mind or would sell, I would pay more!

Thanks!

Gretchen

Hi Gretchen,
Sorry you missed it but glad it brought back good memories. Keep looking - you will find one! www.bringatrailer.com has them from time to time.
Good luck!
