    Well...I should not have but...

    I probably should not have but I bought it anyways.

    91000 mi original paint car purchased today from the original owner who ordered the car new.

    350 T350 2.73 posi
    W-29 optioned Cutlass S
    gauges, tilt column with sport wheel, sport mirrors,
    buckets with console shift
    bumper impact strip, AM radio & SS 111 rims
    door edge guards
    PS, PDB, & I think HD cooling (fan shroud)

    Rust coming in usual places but how often does one get a chance to buy an original car from an original owner who ordered the car?

    I see aftermarket cruise, Alpine stereo (has original) & a vacuum gauge. Bucket seats were recovered by his brother in the 1990s. He has the snorkel which he says just cracked & was falling off 20 years ago. Apart from plugs, coil, wires & tires she is all original including the windshield.

    He changed the oil every 1,000 mi since new (91 oil changes....91!). The car has been hiding in storage since Oct 2006.

    Verbal hand shake & deposit sent. The car is 925 km (575 mi) away from me so I wont be picking her up until May.

    Looking forward to getting her home.

    A few pics to wet your appetite.

    Sending away for the GM of Canada documentation tomorrow. He thinks he has the original Bill of Sale (traded in a 1969 400 Firebird).

    Dave
