This car was an AACA National First Place Senior Division and Preservation Award winner in 2009. In 2010, it won First Place at the Chevrolet VCCA Nationals and took the Preservation Award, yet again. Quite possibly one of the very finest examples, this Chevrolet is loaded with factory options, including a very rare factory spinner steering wheel, factory Chevrolet fog lights, chrome bumper guards, chrome bumper accessory guards and bumper tips, chrome fender skirts with factory moldings, fender stone guards, front fender ornaments, an optional hood ornament, a factory radio, and a factory clock, trim rings, a back-up light, and an exhaust tip. The presentation is simply outstanding, and while difficult to fault, the only noted issues include the aging wide whitewall tires and some very light scuffs near the odometer. This outstanding multiple award-winning example is worthy of close inspection by all discerning collectors of true quality and rarity.
