Very rare, straight and rust-free  car with a  " time capsule" condition interior. The car starts and runs quite well. It has a new battery and interior and exterior electrics work, with the exception of the dash clock. Original Art Deco interior requires no restoration. The photos tell the story. Since I imported it  has been kept in an enclosed garage and taken out for the occasional wash. I hold all the import documentation.

The car is an American -manufactured Deluxe COUPE. Not to  be confused with the much more commonplace, and far less stylish, Sedan or Sloper models which sell for less money. The general rule is - the cooler the car - the better the investment payback and coupes are just behind convertibles, in terms of value.

Chev coupes in this condition are rare in the US - and probably are non-existent in Australia. Unique opportunity for someone wishing to restore a car to its original condition, for a moderate additional investment.

 This car appears to have been in the one family in California, and has what I assume to be 48,500 original miles . Has all the original Deluxe features. Spotlight, reversing lights, radio, heater, nudge bar and original owner's handbook and manual. Was registered in California prior to import and I have driven it. The last US owner intended to customise it but didn't have the heart because of the unique condition of the car. He added an Offenhauser carburettor and valve cover but the originals come with the car. The tyres are from 1972 and are in good order. I added period turn indicators and had it serviced. Interior is unmolested and in remarkable condition for the car's age. Fantastic Art Deco woodgrain dash, with all period knobs and white steering wheel .
