Here is behind the seat before cleaning, notice the gold overspray interior paint on the tank.

Now down on the other end of the tank there is exterior color blue overspray on the tank.

These trucks were shipped with the rubber floor mat behind the seat. It was still there. If it was laid in the sun it would flatten out, but going to buy a repro, and leave the original never unrolled, and behind the seat.

Steve, that is an incredible truck and story. What a historic timepiece! Thanks for taking the time to type that, fascinating! Seeing more details on some of the low mile MSO unsold cars, there were some oddballs for sure. If there'd only been twenty or thirty cars no one would've ever heard of it, but 500 is another story I guess.

Geoff,

I spoke a couple times with a good looking blonde from Australia wearing a jumpsuit with "Cougars " all over it. Think she bought the white Corvair coupe for $40,000.

Have lots of stories to tell. Met so many people from all over. Standing in line to pay for the cars was awesome. Most everyone was happy with what they bought, and knew they paid 2-3 times or more the going rate for similar vehicles. Thing is how do you compare a 1957 Chevy sedan with 47,000 miles on it that is 100% original from front to rear, was stored inside, and had zero rust to any restored vehicle on the market? Same goes for what I bought. Even the rougher day 2 vehicles were better than you find elsewhere, and had verifiable low miles.

This is amazing. I'm curious to see how the original paint looks when cleaned and polished.. Don't change that dry cracked weatherstripping

To me this was one of the most amazing photos of anything I saw at the auction. Look at the gloss black enamel on the exhaust pipe. It would have burned off in a 3 mile cruise. Wonder when Chevy stopped painting the exhaust pipes on new cars? Have similar photo of a 1959 283 with the glossiest orange exhaust manifolds on the planet. That vehicle had 4 or 5 miles. Not overspray, they were fully painted orange.
