Tim ,What Flxible markings does this have on it? Thanks

The sill plates say Flxible as does the large plate at the edge of the rear floor. The other 65 National Buick Bob Hedges had did not have these markings. Does that mean this was one of the first ones National built using the Flxible parts? Maybe

Most likely, Tim. Flxible sold all of its professional car dies and tooling to National and that, as far is we know, also included any components for these vehicles that had already been produced for these cars. This may well have been one of the very first Nationals built using existing Flxible tooling and components - all assembled in Knightstown.

I have to say, in the non pro collector car world, given it's rarity and (under that dust) presumed quality, this is a terrific buy. Actually no, an unbelievable buy.

I really think this is a beauty and probably worthy of someone's attention.
