This is truly one of my cleanest Transitional 1969 Pieces.  Unknown on California Company, but  the spray, pin line, fin – all original, is sooo striking and a show stopper.   Back in the 60’s it was all about quality, not quantity.  We all should reflect on what we had and built then to inspire and guide todays generation to reflect same.  Acquired this out of the Nordine Collection.
