Lot #355 - 326cid V8 with 14,540 original miles. This car is an absolute time capsule, two owners since new, original Bill of Sale included with car, owners book and odometer statement. Bought new on January 12, 1965 from a Pontiac dealer, Schwab Motor sales in Warsaw, NY by Anna Wontuk. The car was her local everyday driver and was special ordered by her husband with the options of push-button radio, windshield washers and wipers, inside non-glare mirror, deluxe steering wheel, custom foam cushions, back-up lamps, soft ray glass, automatic transmission and two snow tires with rims. This car still rides on the original tires and original spare has never been on the ground or the jack ever used. Some time in the late '70s the car was parked in the garage and not used much at all anymore. It remained with the original owner till her passing in 1987, at which time it was sold to the second owner. Seeing what the car was and how original it was, he kept it that way, maintaining it as it should be. The car was treated to a very nice high quality refinish in the original color of Aqua Blue Poly and was completely de-trimmed for the paint work and done correctly. Nobody believes that it was painted when they see it, it's that nice. All original sheet metal, trim and chrome. Un-restored original interior and completely un-molested under the hood. Original stamp showing build date still on the car.
