yep from the paperwork I got
a guy in E Atlanta bought it new in 66
it is a 327/300 auto p/s p/b p/w p/ant car that his wife drove
when she passed away 11 years ago the car went in the garage
he was a customer of a friend of mine who got it from him for me on dec 29, 2017
on the day in 66 when he bought it,and in 2017 when he sold it, he lived in the same house.... 16 days later he passed away in mid Jan.
tires, exhaust, and top seem pretty new
will be interesting to see how it runs
been a long time for me, Im excited
i worked for Eastern Airlines in 1989
and had a 65 roadster as a daily driver
when Eastern fired us all for striking I
had to sell that one to eat
been a long road back🙂

On the interior pics you can see the mold on the carpet must have been a damp basement
