Evaluation: Represented as matching numbers. Good older repaint and better upholstery. Done to quality touring standards with some miles and several years since. Orderly but used engine compartment. Serviced last month with rebuilt carburetors, fuel system cleaning, new plugs and cosmetic detailing. More than good enough to be displayed with pride at the end of a day’s touring.
Bottom Line: The extensively described recent work is indicative of several years of static storage and may (rightfully) have impeded bidders’ enthusiasm for an otherwise attractive and well-preserved older restoration. The result here even after adding the vigorish is conservative and leaves room for work that may rear its ugly head upon further inspection and experience.
