Because of the unique color scheme, and the look from the front of the car, it was nicknamed the "Snake". Therefore, the theme for the car.This car is difficult to describe in print or pictures.
Call with inquiries or for additional information/pictures: 717-773-6367I have over 100 pictures of the entire restoration available and included some in this listing of the car in the barn, headed for restoration and when it was being dismantled.

I reserve the right to end the auction at any time for a local sale. If you are looking for a great "one of a kind" car this is the one. You will not find this quality of a restoration at this price.
Many extra parts available, if desired, but NOT included in this price.
