Lot #1590 - A rare original California Dusk Rose car with all white interior. It was restored in 1999-2000 by Fawcett Motor Carriage. Purchased from Amos Minter. It received a full frame off rotisserie restoration using Baumgartners Restoration guide with additional advice from Minter, Ed Robbins and Gil Baumgartner. All panel fits and site lines are correct. Options include power steering, brakes, windows, seat T & C radio, windshield washers, 3 tops, engine dress up kit and wire wheels. Nearly $200,000 has been spent to make this car the best. The restoration was so complete that event eh grease in the window crank boxes was changed. Dupont created the metal prep and primer in dusk rose to give the paint more depth. The chassis was very carefully assembled to make the car handle as beautifully as it looks. The California license plates are extermely rare with original 57 sticker. They have been checked for authenticity and legality.
