Good sleuthing North! I google mapped it too and that is such a great old neighborhood. I love the gravel alley next to the garage. I can just imagine what it was like over 50 years ago...what a great time to live...!

Notice the paved pad to the left of the garage, thatís where the car he drove the rest of the time probably went.

Car made it to upstate NY over the weekend, waiting on CBP to clear it for export so should have it Friday. Kind of curious to see if it meets expectations!

Got the car home a few days ago, very happy with it. Careful inspection confirms that paint is 100% original and no surprises. One interesting thing is that the rear valance is a factory plastic unit. Seen reference to them in the shop manual and MPC but never seen one in person. It’s never been hit or scratched but I can see why I’ve never seen one before. It is deformed (not from an impact) and you can see the plastic is brittle. Easy to imagine how on a less pampered situation of winter cold and outdoor storage these plastic ones would have had a short service life.

The nose is indeed deteriorated but luckily i had an excellent spare. Already at the body shop for painting. Only rust spot is a bulge starting in the regular spot on the bottom rear corner of one fender. Might leave it be or might pull the fender and have it patched and paint just below that bottom feature line.
