Cool Possible S code on ebay

Location: British Columbia
Price: Best Offer

Needs a Marti report, but could be a really good project for someone.

Guessing that it has a Canadian DSO, due to the lack of smog, and the 1967 air cleaner assembly without IMCO.

What's with all the Canadian GT/CSs coming up for sale these days? Is this happening for other collector cars as well?
Could it be because the US$ has strengthened vs the CA$ over the last year (up ~25%)?

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.

That is the most unique scoop stripe and lettering I've ever seen.

What a nice car! Speaker location in the door may require a repair, but if it is the real deal, what a great project!

I'll bet the owner didn't want to spring for the correct stripes and made his own version up.

Are those snow tires on the rear, and is that rust in front of the wheel well?
If the owner drove the car in the winter it may be a rust bucket.

so, just got off thephone with owner......Wow! He just bought car from original owner in------ wait for it----- Calgary! its an original Calgary car-- spent its whole life here. Owner in his 80's now. It's a B6 DSO --- don't have my book here with me but I seem to recall only about 20-30 cars were sent here. It was sold out of Maclin Ford (which still exists)
It has the GT option group on it so all in all a pretty rare little gem.

Wish I had found it!!

No A/C

But you guys know I love the big blocks!!! And wanted a real GT

We bought it!!!!! Mike, Please enter John & Sheryl Volkman as owner on this one.

Pictures to come. It is a rare gem(like Stephen said) Everything is here (well except for rear seat belts) Wiring like new. Original motor (checked VIN on block) radiator, water pump ect. Radio works. Im just looking at everything, its like a time capsule, so fun. Only rust found at rear quarters & small amount behind front wheels, wheel wells are good. Floor pans, rails ect are great!!

Sheryl;
No A/C? Classic Auto Air sells an after market system that looks almost factory, and gets good reports. Bring it to NC, and I'll install it for you.
