Canadian documentation is a big plus and certainly nice colors. Virtually no detail in the description other than the standard COPO history which is pretty worthless. Estimate seems a bit optimistic.

Could it be the Musselum Motors COPO? They had a Hugger Orange one, & a Yellow one. Dale

So, I'm watching IIHF hockey, NFL playoffs and surfing the net including Yenko.net and I stumble across this thread. There's a discussion about this car and I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw the pics and read about it.

Change the 4speed to a column automatic (day 2 changed to a B&M shifter), add power steering and this car is a dead match to the one a late buddy of mine owned back around 1973 or so, colour combination and all. He didn't keep it long as it was so impractical as a daily driver. I don't know if he bought it from the original owner or not but it was in mint condition with about 12 or 13000 miles on it and the person he bought it from was in Regina, Saskatchewan.

"Restored by Brian Henderson and Joe Swezey at Super Car Workshop
in Latrobe, Pennsylvania"

These guys do great job restoring these cars!

That alone should tell you how nice the restoration is on this Copo.
