    Default Saved another one yesterday!



    Throughout the years I have rescued 100's of pieces of old iron from peoples' properties, all over this great country. Today I had the pleasure of pulling this true one owner, 63k original mile beauty out of a local pasture here in Boulder County, where it has sat for over 25 years untouched. It brings such joy to my heart and soul to know I had a part in this gem's resurrection.











    I also was able to get the original top and doors which were in good condition. Took a bit to get out of this pasture as we had to "trim" a few trees to get it back to a road. But am ecstatic that we were able to save this from rotting away any further. And it's really neat to have the paperwork showing it's original sale in Boulder. Was the first one off the lot when they were brand new.

    Cool!

    Engine bay and dash pix please.

    Those are perhaps the second set of tires for the vehicle...

    Sorry, with all the packing and moving, I won't have time for more photos anytime soon. But for reference, The engine bay is original except for the wasps nests and what look to be the nests of many different families of pack rats.

    Somewhat. The factory orange color with the factory soft top makes it rare. And it being original to Boulder, where it stayed it's entire life is kinda neat.
