We received the below letter from the vendor and after proof reading it we decided we couldn’t change a word!
The story of my 1968 SS350 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible.
It begins in the Lake District on holiday driving my Transam of “Bandit” fame. With narrow mountainous roads, scarce petrol stations and LH driving making my wife face oncoming traffic, I returned home to “I am never going in that thing again.”
Auctioneers notes: This is a remarkable car owned by a remarkable man, 86 years young. We have printed his letter to us “the story of my 1968 SS350 Chevrolet Camaro Conv” in full. In the history file, the magazine Classic American, issued in September ’12 is a 4 page article including photographs of the vendor. Ron (the vendor) has kept in touch with the previous owners in the States and exchanges Xmas cards with them, there are 3 letters from 2 of the previous owners, it all helps to support the providence of this superb car. Included in the “American File” is a very important document called a Certificate of Title State of Florida, dated 8.12.89 showing the mileage to be 77,616 as correct. In the UK File, which Ron has kept meticulously, are all the MOT’s from 1990, mileage 80,077 till today which shows the car has covered just over 11,000 odd miles in the past 28 years. Also there is a very comprehensive file of invoices from that period. To finish, while this car was in Ron’s ownership, she has never been out in the rain and it is Ron’s wish that this car, which he loves, goes to a new owner who will appreciate it. She really is in tip top condition.
