Chassis no. 91003414; Engine no. 54ST0003416RV0105F22. Dark Violet over black leather. 327 4-barrel Chevrolet V-8, automatic, Ronal alloy wheels, Vredestein tires, power brakes, air conditioning, Panasonic CD stereo, Momo leather rim steering wheel, power windows, rear window defogger.

Evaluation: Located in Germany. Idiosyncratic notchback body that looks like a shooting brake with the rear roof section removed. Good older paint with some detail shortcomings and road chips. Lightly creased but barely used upholstery appropriate to the 8524 km (5297 mi) showing. Orderly engine compartment. Restored some time ago to good but not exceptional standards.

Bottom Line: Not pretty, but different, and even in Monterey a vehicle unlikely to find another like it coming around the corner, even at Concorso Italiano. Aside from the automatic it is also a performance value and is in good driving condition, although it doesn’t appear to have been driven much in the last few years and is likely to need attention.

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.
