Chassis no. AR1900C10548; Engine no. AR130810536. Blue over blue vinyl and gray cloth. 1975/115hp, dual carburetors, 4-speed, Phillips pushbutton radio, silver painted centerlock wire wheels, Michelin tires, woodrim steering wheel.

Evaluation: Represented as the original engine. Good older paint with edge chips around the hood and deck lid, some dust. Impressively flat and carefully fit panels. Generally good chrome with save for that around the windshield. Orderly engine compartment and chassis that has been restored but not taken back to bare metal and redone. Attractive upholstery and interior trim, good gauges, except the tachometer lens is becoming hazy. Done to high standards, neat and tidy throughout.

Bottom Line: This “3-window coupe” is the final—and by far the most attractive—evolution of the Touring-bodied 1900C and is eligible for many prominent and enjoyable events. Blessed by particularly high-quality body work, it is a pleasure to look at and sold for a moderate price that is fair to both the buyer and the seller.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
