I've seen that car on Collector Car Trader several times and always thought it was a nice one.

Spent a lot of my childhood watching a 1960 dash from the back seat and it is still one of my favorites. I hope to own a Sixty again someday. There was a flawless and gorgeous Dynamic Celebrity Sedan at All GM Carlisle last month, but $25000 was a little rich for my blood.

There can't be many of those running around in New Zealand! I wish you the very best with it.

Let us know when it arrives, & be sure to post a few pics of it with the right wheelcovers & some WWW tires!

Chuck
Yes it is Chuck. Man, those guys from I-VAN are awesome. They are so good at finding all the problems and all the positives as well. I would recommend them to anyone for peace of mind buying and professional appraisals. Especially someone like me buying over the internet so to speak.
It helps that the seller was a really nice honest guy to deal with.
And yes definitely a wheel/tire change imminent.
The guy I bought it off had only done 450 miles since 2003!!!
Price was way below 25k too.

The Olds will be sharing the garage with my other toy.

Hope they get along.

Congrats! Not surprised to see a nice roadster like that one with a HAMB license plate. I visit there too.

Thanks Dan.
Bought the roadster off the Hamb classifieds so thought the personalised plate was just right for it.
Cheers
Dale
