I cannot be sure if this is true in this specific case, but I have had the experience with sellers that they put a bunch of key words that will ping a common search for the same or similar vehicle...I have seen a coach listed as a MM Eureka 3 way end loader 1959 1960 etc... The seller is attempting to have their listing be inclusive in a multitude of searches...that does not explain why this seller stated that his 61...looks nice in the pics...is the "last of the fins"....Who knows?

You would think there would be a little more info and interior photos when asking 20,000.00

You think they would blow off the leaves too.

I wonder if any of the other PCS members in Butler PA know of the car or owner.

1964 was the last year for the fins.

Except for the limo. The 1965 year model had fins.

The 65 Limo could well be called a 64 with 65 running gear. I don't think much except running gear is 65.

I'll have to argue that the 69 was the last year fr fines. anytime you have to worry about how to paint a vertical surface between the quarter and the glass it's a fin. may not be much like Dan said but it's still a fin

Is there anyone in the area that plans on looking at the vehicle?
