Front and rear air.  That's so rare you could ebay just the unit and get your money back.

I think I can come up with the money within the month or so, but the problem would be getting it here from the OK state. Maybe he'll take a deposit and let me pick it up a month later or something. I showed my husband the pics, and he likes it. Good sign! I'll convert him yet...
 
I am going to inquire w/ the owner and see if I can get some shots of the interior... including that dual AC. How cool!

I'd like to see you get it. Make him a decent offer when you can pay for it in full.  He'll probably be more than willing to store it for you for a while.  Good luck. Keep us posted.

Good news! Car is still available and owner is sending me more pictures this afternoon. I am writing up a list of questions to ask when i give them a call later on. This car might be a Coronado, but I need to verify. Only 2 colors on her, but it's possible it could have been repainted (ad says all original, tho). Who knows.
 
I've got 1/2 of the money saved. If i can unload that rambler for a few hundred, that would help. Owner said that it would be no problem to hold vehicle until pickup once payment was received.

I thought the coronado had the tri-tone paint? black, turquoise, and white. I'm kind of giddy. My husband really likes this car, and I am itching to start working on something again. I hate to get my hopes up, but I am starting to want this thing more and more!

They also had one in 54. The firedome, I believe.
 
Update: I spoke with the LADY who owns this car (:)!!) and she confirms that it is, in fact, a coronado. The interior is shot in this thing. There is also hole in the drivers floorpan about the size of a dinnerplate.

Apparently this car is one rare bird. A 2-tone coronado (!?). It's fully optioned, and someone who i've been talking to that knows more about these things is telling me that he wouldn't consider it far-fetched to say that this might very well be a 1-of car. Uhh... you had me at HELLO!



 
Once I get the price-tag settled, I'll be gearing up for her journey home.

Not all Coronados were 3 tone - John Fowlie has a 2 tone one in nothern
Cali... they were built like tanks in 55 and 56, a fair number of them
have survived. Great cars... this one would have the dash mounted lever
