Evaluation: 1974 AACA and unnumbered CCCA National First Prizes. Owned for some years by classic car tire producer Tom Lester. Lester believed it was built for boxer Jack Dempsey who is pictured in a similar Chrysler. A sound but aged old restoration with flawed paint, a dribbly engine and worn upholstery.
Bottom Line: Offered by RM at the New York Auto Salon in 2000 where it was reportedly bid to $70,000. The passage of time and not a few miles is apparent but it is still in usable condition if not particularly visually impressive. The result here is reasonable and the new owner will have a story to tell.
