VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
  I found this car in Ft Lauderdale, FL in the September of 2008.  The restoration was done several years ago, and the paint and interior are in very good  condition.
It spent over 20 years of it's life in the San Francisco.  A man by the name of Gerald Talkington of Big Springs, TX purchased the car and owned it for several years.  He sold it to Mark Hyman and Hyman sold it to the owner I purchased it from at one of the Florida auctions.  I think it was the Barrett Jackson auction.  I have rebuilt the brake system and done quite a bit of TLC to the car which including getting the overdrive transmission to work properly.  The engine had been rebuilt before I purchased the car and it does not use any oil, smoke, land runs perfectly,

The car is currently for sale for the amount of $68,500.00 only because I want to decrease the size of my classic car fleet.  This is much below the old car buyers guide for a #2 car and this is a strong #2 car.
