Wow, this is just the same as my 1964 1500S that was one of my favorite cars I owned. Amazing car as I drove one from 1971 to 1982 when I sold it to buy a 1972 VW Bus. My 1500S had a gas heater up front which made it a great ski car. No matter how frozen the car was you just turned on the heater and in 5 minutes the car was toasty warm and ready to drive off. Skis and equipement fit in the back so I never had a rack either. I remember the car getting 30-35mpg to and it would cruise all day at 75mph when I drove it up and down the West Coast on trips.
