70 W31 just purchased in rare colors







I just picked up this 70 W31 from the nephew of original owner who inherited in 2005. Mostly original and unmolested. Iíve owned several over the years, all 4-speed but am anxious to see how this 3.91 auto can run. Iíve only see 2 other black cars but none with red stripes

Great looking car! I like how there are still stories of people finding them in this condition and what seems to be so well preserved.

Beautiful! I have a weakness for red/black cars, in case you were wondering.

Thatís a sweet 31. I love the black with red stripes. Any interior pics you can post? Did the car have any accompanying documentation? Al

I will try to post more pics this weekend when I am back with the car at my building. A little more info; the car is a black bucket dual gate car with sport steering wheel, sport mirrors and power steering. Most original paint, no modifications to drivetrain, 55,000 miles. ALL 5 SSII wheels have never been painted and the original spare never on the ground is a Uniroyal tiger paw, as I said I plan to take more detailed pics as time allows

Most black W cars have gold stripes that I have seen. Most times the interior color is the same as stripe.

FYI: Interior color was a no cost option. Mine was ordered with black. My '70 W-30 is black with gold stripes.
Uniroyal Tiger Paws were in fact used. They had excellent traction and wore extremely well. I'll take pics when we get warmer weather and NO SNOW.
