Roger W. Phillips
A well known Oregon Cert. Appraiser v22-055
NSRA Oregon state Safety Inspector Retired.
Appraised this car at $222,300. a copy of the appraisal is pictured.

The story that goes along with the car is. It was purchase in California around 12/2007 or early 2008. By my very good friend's father in law, the car was originally rust free and totally stock.
White exterior with Blue interior and a White Power top.
It had a 283 cid V8 Automatic, Power steering, power brakes & Power top. and was in great condition.
The floors, Rockers and trunk floors are original and the one's the car was born with.
No patch panels put in this car's body.

My friend told me that he remembers riding in the car and complimenting the father in-law on how nice the car was. And that the condition was great.
Father in-law's answer was, it is but I think I will put brakes and new shocks on the car.

The next weekend my friend went over for a visit to find the car disassembled and put on a rotisserie.
The father in-law has done many restoration's on show cars, so this was nothing new to the family. Lol.
This was the start of along very expensive restoration.

Here is were the story turns. After getting the car apart. The father in-law gets sick and couldn't finish the car. So between the widow and son in-law the project got finished.

The finished product is very very nice!!

I think with a little more time and some finish work this could be a Perfect show car.

What I see is every thing on the car has been changed with new or rebuilt.
Many many dollars spent on Polishing and Replated parts.
The folder on this car is about an inch thick with Tens of Thousands of dollars spent in parts.
I know some of the receipts are missing.
