I had been looking for a new project something Early my last few builds have been late stuff, I have found a 1961 original Rag-top with all OG metal and paint. I was told it was a Cali car till 5 years, then to the gulf coast where thing don't stay as nice. It was a patina car that was cleared. He had drove it around a few years ago then parked.
