Depends on what color the interior is. In the photos it appears to be black and silver, but they aren't great photos.

Not only is this the last of the "big ones", it is also the last of the limousine-style S&S professional cars. As such, this could be considered a rare and collectable vehicle....something of a milestone car. I hope some dedicated PCS members buys, restores and preserves this unusual example.

Default 76 s&s

just got home. went back to channelview,tx. to drive the car and everything he said was correct.(thats a wonder to start with) interior is absulutely perfect. black and silver weave. power windows that operate correctly as he had to replace one window motor. a/c cycling and is still r12. drove the car 75 mph and there are no issues. has original 76 epa sticker even. all records from the funeral home he bought it from. he,s the second owner for the last 2 years. small dent in back door.has rust spots on roof and sides along roof line and where a beacon ray was on it for years. dual air. rear is perfect. flipped rollers over and jump seats and floors perfect, made offer on the car as i want it but at my price and he made counter offer. monday morning will tell. im not gonna lose it over a little. i think i will have it monday as he needs to sell it. car is tight with no rattles or squeaks. good low miles. typing this made my mind up for me . next time i post about it ill own it.

Default My Two Cents

Kyle, with all due respect, you are playing with fire. I had interest in the car, but once you spoke up, I backed off. Now, I would not go behind your back and buy it, but you know, there are many other procar nuts out there. All I am saying is, that if you are fighting over a couple hundred bucks, you ought not lose it. It has happened to me and every time I have kicked myself. Even worse, I will then buy less car for more money. I rest my case my brother.

Soooo is it home yet?


That is a beautiful body style! Being a combon makes it that much nicer.

Personally I'd leave it all white. Just seems more appropriate for a dual use car.
