Default 35 I bought

I dragged the 35 home that I bought,my wife took some pictures,because I'm not much for taking them.This is a typical 60's restoration,patches here and there,made to look good and drive.This car leans more toward a fun driver rather than a restoration.Interior is bad,(I helped put it in in 1979).It does appraise rather high,(I think)but the appraiser just shrugged and said it is a 35 three window coupe,and that is what it is worth.

Very cool. Just how I like them. A little crusty, a little beat up, but fun as heck to drive.

What a score! 3 window coupes are in great demand and how blessed you are that you found this one.

Typical story, "this greyhound followed me home, can I keep it?" Great looking car.

It took years for the owners dad to get that license plate,it had been in use and became available when the previous user dropped the ball and didn't renew his registration.While the car was last started in 98,the owner of the car kept it registered with that vanity plate just so he could have it if he ever decided he wanted to drive it.Insurance is not required in N.H. to keep a car registered,so it just cost him $40.per year to keep the plate current.

Welcome to 3 window world! One tip: don't leave anything on the rumble cushion and then close the lid - it slides back and jams the lid so you can't open it.
