Chassis no. JH23J0B279467; Engine no. FW340SP31450275. Plum Crazy with black vinyl roof and matte black hood over black vinyl. 340-cid, 290hp Six Pack engine, automatic, woodgrain console, heater, Rallye instruments, hood scoop, power steering, power front disc brakes, Rallye wheels with trim rings, Polyglas GT tires, pushbutton radio, original broadcast sheet documented.

Evaluation: Excellent older paint in the original High Impact color with small door edge chips. The chrome is sound but has some scratches and a gouge on the front bumper. The interior is like new except for scratched door sills. Very good engine compartment and chassis in nearly showroom condition. Flush panel fits and even gaps. Tacky vinyl-wrapped steering wheel rim. A thoroughly restored car showing only a little age.

Bottom Line: Offered at Mecum Portland in 2016, where it was reportedly bid to $65,000. Its value has gone nowhere since then, in parallel with the market, and the consignor was prudent in accepting this bid. Plum Crazy is the color to have and even at the presale low estimate this is a sound value.
