Default 32 roadster with original interior

Virus isolation didn't stop me when this V8 roadster was offered to me by the owner of almost 50 years. It had 36,000 miles when he bought it and now has
47,000 but unfortunately he painted it in the early 70's. The original interior was
thankfully preserved, however. The leather front seat has a few problems but
still looks pretty good. The all original floors still have factory maroon paint on
them and not a speck of rust.
Having a great time investigating this 88 year old car in this terrible time we
find ourselves in.
Anybody out there have any idea how many roadsters have all original
interiors and upholstery ?

Hi Joe1950, Not trying to make you jealous, but I would like to know
about other roadsters with original interiors. I do know about Gene Wetlands
on his website and the one on Long Island? that has been in the same
family since new that was written up in the Early Ford V8 magazine.
There must be some more out there.
