VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:

Built in March of 1956; sold through R. W Bowman & Son in York, PA to a Lancaster, PA customer. Inherited by the  grandson of the original owner and lived the middle of its life in Arkansas. At some time it was moved to Detroit, MI where I found it in a Hemmings ad in 1990. Brought it to CT where I have spent more time and money on its restoration than any sane person would have spent (sane people really don't know what they are missing). Just finishing up the interior and some much needed trim piece restorstion, and there is a light at the end of the tunnel...

Modification Detail:

Interior had deteriorated during storage of 8 years while the body was painted (a whole chapter I don't need to relive).

After seeing the posted pictures of the '56 Patrician that Randy Berger bought in 2010, I was impressed with the red and gray leather interior and am proceeding along those lines. I am looking at completion of that part of the project late spring, 2012.
