Mark Canning from our group dug out this pic of the plate on the Al Wallace clone of 20+ years ago.

Looks the same to me.

That last video (I didn't watch it in its entirety) is the Maryland collection I referred to earlier. I recognized "Holly". I've seen the owner at local swap meets buying used $15.00 stuff, and I've also seen him at auctions spending millions.

Curious about the decision to detail those high-end cars. Would've thought they'd have more appeal as found......

From the videos I've seen, the detailing is really cleaning and a bit of preservation. Not a "fluff and buff" trying to hide issues.

I'd suspect the exposure on Larry's YouTube channel and knowing that someone skilled help revive them will help with selling them as well.

Using a power buffer on any of the original lacquer paint GM cars is a BIG NO NO. ESPECIALLY the Corvettes, the surface finish of vette paint is scrutinized extremely closely because unlike other GM cars they couldn't reflow fiberglass cars in a baking booth.
