Honey Gold with Ivy Gold and White Pony interior
65B Luxury Coupe with a lot of options
Built in San Jose and shipped/sold new in Phoenix area. Car was one of 22,232 Luxury Coupes. It has the following options: 65B Luxury Coupe, V8, Auto, AC, PS, PB, Push button radio, Visibility Group, Console, Tinted front glass, Padded Visors, rocker panel moldings, cigarette lighter, and maybe more (not sure about what wheels/tires it came with or what the dealer may have added) Arrived in New Mexico in 2000 then Texas in 2012 and Tennessee in 2015. I purchased the car in 2018 bringing it to the rustbelt (Chicago). Solid car but had previous quarter panel damage from a wreck some time in the cars history. They did a terrible job fixing it so now car is being restored with some upgrades. If rust is found it will be replaced with new. Comments welcome
Garage will change as car progresses and I have more pictures in my album.
Just a nice paint job. Lots and lots of new metal. Restoration underway. Will end up with a ton of pictures by the time it is completed. Car will still be Honey Gold having the factory greenish tint (AKA Fools Gold).
Factory Pony car with AC. Keeping stock but will freshen and soundproof as needed. Replacing carpet and adding matching two toned aftermarket door panels. New dash and carpet color will be different but what we like for color combination with car. Will end up getting a new steering wheel at some point and installing a Rally Pac for it.
