I have received lots of questions and support for this example, ome well intentioned some not. Let me clarify a few points so that there is no misunderstandings concerning this 42 year old car.

The mileage as stated can be verified as accurate using the detailed service records including the original Factory warranty book that comes with the car. Those documents are available for inspection but I will not forward photos of a 2" thick service file.

The spare tire rim is a Factory alloy that came with the car and has been used. It should be reconditioned if the car is to be shown as could the other 4. The spare tire alsoappears to be original to the car and since that would make it 42 years oldit should not be used. I certainly wouldn't use it.

I will restate again that all panels are original to the car and there is no evidence of any clips, ollusions, r other body work. The carwas refinished in Factory silver in 2014, don't think it is reasonable to expect that an 80k mile car that is 42 years old would have a flawless finish like this one. In the processof painting some mistakes were made. The rubber seal between the trunk and fuel compartment was lost and has not been replaced. Theoriginal carpeting on the panel below the seal haspulled away and needs to be reglued. There is some overspray on the rubberstraps that hold the jack in place that should be removedand the original jack itself, hile never used, ould use a good cleaning. I wouldn't think these items would be a deal breaker but make your own decision, hat's why it's an auction.

The gaskets on the car are original and could be replaced as evidenced by the damaged piece above the drivers head. Time and heat have alsotaken their toll on other rubber parts like the pieces on the tops of the doors that wipe the side windows.

The front hood latch has been replaced as the original failed. The replacement is a used part from a '74 Malaga Red car hence the red oversprayon the topof the latch. This is not an indication of a front end collusion, ustsloppy work by a mechanic who should've cleaned the part before it was installed. I must give full credit to viewers with a doomday approach to used cars as I suppose anything is possible. However, o conclude that the front of the car is a clip based on that overspray is a real stretch even for those holding the sign that says"The End is Near".

Hagerty has not inspected this car and I have not made any claims as to if it is a condition 1 or 2 car. That is up to bidders to determine upon inspection. Spending a lot of time making that determination without seeing the car in person would seem like another stretch but I guess some folks think they can do the job long distance because they have one apart in their garage. I don't recommend it.

Thanks for all the feedback, t has been very entertaining and good luck bidding.
