To me, it looks like there is some very careful wording being used, such as: "ALWAYS KEPT IN A GARAGE WITH ROOF." No where does it state that it was in an enclosed area, just that it had a roof. Either that thing went off into a body of water and got a LOT of pond scum throughout the interior, or it had to be just under an open "carport" because there is just too much crap all over the interior. Also, look how faded the instrument needles are. I have seen much cleaner cars at the local, U-Pull It, type parts yards. I do not believe that it was, or had been actually stored inside an enclosed space. It really looks like nothing more than a salvage parts car, but what do I know. I would not really consider it as a builder, because if it did ditch in the drink, the entire drive train may be toast. Just my humble opinion, and $100,000.00 cents worth.
