That is like the fantasy of finding a Manual Transmission, 1971 Plymouth 426 Hemi Barracuda convertible ( only 4 ever made with the 4-Speed manual ) , in a barn, with the original window sticker still on it and 3 miles on the odometer.

An old lady comes out, tells you that her son bought it the day he was ordered to leave for Vietnam, never got to drive it, and never came home . . . She then proceeds to sell it to you for the original sticker price of $ 4500 .
