Not mine. Found it on CL. Owner says he has 55k wrapped up in it. I don't know where.

That's what I was thinking. Even if he bought the car 20K how can he put 35K more on 5 doors, 2 rockers and 2 fenders...??

True story. At 55k into it, it should at least actually be ready for paint.

Does anyone else see the real humour in this listing?

Looking at the pics of the car and garage and considering the location, I think this listing is for one of Dean Newman's cars.

I do Doug. For starters, Saf-T-Vu Lites only came on non-high tops, which have too much curvature to mount those cast aluminum bases. One could have purchased a low top with tunnel lights however.

Not only is this Dean Newman's ($$$$$) coach but condition hasn't progressed in several years since I last saw it.

man could get a lot of money tied up there but just for fun lets post pictures of other 59 high tops for sale. personal I never saw the attraction in this body style. but those that do are willing to pay the big bucks for one.

Both light styles were available on hightops as well as lowtops:

Figures after I went through my archives and checked MM book. Hadn't seen those bases before, thanks Steve.

I know it's rare but here is 2 identical '59 examples I saw. Btw the 1st one was completely cut in parts to restore a low top.

anything left of the other one? of course they did not only make one. but a man craving one can log a lot of miles back and forth looking at junk to find one of the lower productions numbers.

Yellow '59 posted migrated Stateside and survives in a private collection.

...as he says. The yellowish-white beige just crossed the border thru New York.

So where is its ultimate destination?
