Does anyone have any knowledge of this car? You don't see power tops very often from my experience.

Is it just the perspective of the photo, or do the broach marks look not parallel, and done with a belt sander?

Default Ouch!

Description: ... Original hub caps with spinners. ... This Car Will Sell AS-IS! We do not have a title as this car was a voluntary seizure from the State Attorney. ...We do not have a key and did not attempt to get it running. This is a perfect project vehicle as there is damage to the drivers side front quarter panel.

Interesting how this car was built after and has an April built engine.

I stay out of block stamp threads as I don't have any experience in this area, but that looks like a brand new stamping to me. There's no dirt or rust or any corrosion in the stamps.

Vin 111 too close and 6 is slanted. Nice try but I don’t think it looks factory

I guess you were the high bidder!
Does the engine turn over?
Is the drivers' side windshield posted busted or is it the top on the drivers' side broken?

The 62 looked like it was sitting for a very long time

I do not own it, nor did I bid on the car.
