VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
The car was having a 1988 Pennsylvania taxtag, it has been exported in 1989 to Belgium. The car was licensed here but hasn't been driven a lot. The first Belgian owner sold it to someone who was interested in the car but who didn't had many time to use the car ( interstate truckdriver ). He put the car in a barn and left it there during 17 years. Now some months ago he wanted to clean-up his barn and concluded to sale the car ( with a 2nd barn sleeper : a 1952 (?) Buick ). He put the car at a local car dealer who didn't knew if this was an American or a French car!!?? Yeah, it's an oldtimer and I hope it will be sold soon were his toughts. At one day I was passing by and saw the car, it was love at first sight and I bought the car for a reasonable price. There is some minor rust, the taillight lens and a parking light lens was broken, but right now allready repaired with new ones.
