By strange he is showing pictures of two vary different cars. Look at the doors. I'm not the one to say four sure but don't think this started out as a factory limo. If it was true to form it started out as the cheapest sedan they could buy.

Probably not even the same coach builder, in looking at the many differences.

That said, I don't think he said anything about them being the same car in his listing.

From what I have seen, this is not a Hess & Eisenhardt "Airport Limousine". These were generally fastback style cars and some had fabric sun roofs while the one offered for sale is a more traditional "trunk back" style car that looks like a conversion of a series 75 sedan. I'd look for proof of it being an example of H&E coachwork - like a builder's tag or logo.
