VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
  Purchased from USA Motors (a used car lot) in Mansfield, O. on August 11, 2001.  Ohio insurance cards left in the glove box indicate previous owner to be Donald V. Staten.  The length of Mr. Staten's ownership, or the car's history before Mr. Staten is not known.

The car had undergone a complete, but amateur restoration many years before I purchased the car.  It was nicely done, but could have been much better.

Sold to Col. Philip R. Adair (USAF Ret.) on May 25, 2011.
