VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Purchased 11/2015 with 92,466 mi. showing. Last driven in 1990 into the garage where it was until 9/2015. It came with California registrations dating back to 1961, which I believe shows the original owners. Also included were service records starting in 1982, one from 1984 showing a "complete rebuild and partial replacement" from Lucas Transmissions on S. Compton St. in L.A.
   I purchased the car from Paul McKeegan who was a stylist at Studebaker from 1959 until the end.
