Description
Lot #1279 - A 283/270hp, dual quad, T10 4-speed convertible. Judged NCRS Top Flight. A one-family-owned car with Wonder Bar radio. It was purchased new at Loehmans Chevrolet in Waterbury, Connecticut in August of 1960 by Cosmo Cianciolo. The car was treated to a very personal and dynamic, nut and bolt, body-off restoration by Jeffrey Cianciolo, the original owner's son. After an 18 month intensive frame-off restoration, the car was entered in the Northeast NCRS Meet in June of 2005. It scored a 97.2, thus receiving the coveted NCRS Top Flight Award. This car has been restored using all the original components which have been rebuilt or restored. The complete drivetrain has been rebuilt including the original Carter carburetor. The car has less then 68,500 actual miles and has been driven only 75 miles since restoration completion. The car was originally and still is Crown Sapphire with Snowcrest White coves, white ragtop and a 3.70:1 posi-traction rear end. This car has 100% factory correct gauges, Wonder Bar radio, shifter, shielding, air cleaner, valve covers, hubcaps, jack, spare and tools. The beautiful white fiberglass undercarriage is expertly detailed as well as the chassis and engine bay. The car's interior, paint and chrome are excellent. This car drives as nice as it looks. There are no disappointments. NCRS judging sheets, certificate and ribbon are included. Registrations from the 1970's and a signed affidavit from the original owner's son verifying the integrity of this car are included. Don't miss your opportunity to own this very prestigious automobile.
