VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
July 2015  
Just came back from a mechanical freshen up. New tires, gas tank, vacuum advance, exhaust, new freeze plugs, plus went through and flushed all systems.  Carb rebuild etc.

Car starts right up and drives very nicely. Torsion works intermittently will drive till fall and have mechanic go through the systems again.

2013 timeframe
I put this car up for sale in 2013 so I could buy another, my father purchased it since it had a nice interior.  In 2014 I tried to buy it back from dad and he wouldn't sell it back to me. Dad never was good about selling cars. 

2011 timeframe
Previous history on car, I purchased this car off ebay in 2011 when it was located in Danville Virginia. Previous owner mentioned it ran, drove no issues, needed paint work. He didn't mention that it didn't go into reverse. Said he had a drive through garage so it wasn't an issue for him. Note, note to self when buying next car.
