History
Two owners before me, this car spent its days in the Texas sun. Going strong with 40,000 original miles, the last owner moved up to New England to begin life anew. He got himself a 1970 Malibu convertible and used Penelope as an engine donor. Coming off the line with a SBC 350 and the Powerglide 2 speed at a nice grandma gold she hit the road running. Not much else is known about the history, but at 50 years old, her life is just beginning.
