----I first met Bob Fuller around 1969-70. We went to his house to look at the black LS6. Bob was not a real likeable guy. He invited us out there and then turned nasty when we got there. We left without the car. Later I bought a 66 red Hemi Satelite from Jerome Shinkay and found out later that he bought it from Fuller. A year or so later my boss Richard B was sponsoring an auction and I reluctantly put the Hemi up for sale as I had house payments to make. Bob ended up trading me a 70 454 Corvette for it. Thinking it was a good deal at the time I didn't look the car over too well and later found it had a one piece Eckler's nose on it. My bad, but that was the end of doing business with Bob!......Bill S

That is probably why everyone thinks this car is original paint, because why would anyone think differently?

Seems to me it's classic auction language written in an ambiguous way to give prospective buyers the impression it's the original coat of paint from the factory, but instead it seems the actual meaning is the car is still painted in the original factory color of Tuxedo Black based on your statement the car was repainted.

Bruce, thanks for bringing back this old thread. What an amazing collection of cars and signs Dave C. had at one time. Hard to pick a favorite from so many to choose, but for me the blue and white striped ZL-1 is at or near the top of my list.
