Evaluation: Touch up on the right front fender, a few chips around the filler cap and a crack on the passenger’s front door, but mostly good eye-catching paint. Slightly erratic panel fit. The cloth roof is fraying a little at the edges. Original and aged but well-preserved dash, gauges and steering wheel. Good newer seats, carpets and headliner. Mostly unrestored and a little rough underneath. Cosmetically restored and far from perfect, but it’s really neat and where are you going to find another one?
Bottom Line: Nobody knows how many Virginians were built and they’re a seriously rare sight, but we’ve seen this one several times before. It sold at Auburn Fall in 2005 for $30,240, at Hershey two months later for $33,000, at RM Monterey in 2007 for $38,500, at Mecum Las Vegas in 2018 for $34,100, and for just $17,050 at Leake Scottsdale last year. It looks the same and shows just 2 more miles since we looked it over in Scottsdale, so this looks like a very successful flip of a rare, handsome old conversation starter.
