Sounds like a win win.

Any chance that's the original paint on the car?

This was a treat to see!
Noticed this also & thought it was unusual especially citing the fact that the car literally blew up the Internet a couple months ago!

I would imagine those show boards were made months in advance. It was a great honor meeting the current owner and have offered my help in locking down the early history on the car.

I don't want to openly speculate on the price in an open forum, but would this car have been *that* valuable in its current state? Realizing there aren't many/any comps to go by.

What did PGN say, FB is a big place.

So was someone able to establish it was a converted car?
