VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
I first saw this car 40 years ago. It was owned by a couple from northern Indiana and had been found in a senior citizen's garage there. I bought the car in October of 2019 from a subsequent owner and have no idea how many other owners it had in the interim.

I have polished and waxed the exterior paint and am about to have the Torsion Level suspension repaired/rebuilt. With the exception of a few minor items, because the car is about 90% an original survivor, I do not plan to restore it further. It is presentable as it is.

Modification Detail:
The car appears to have had one very good paint job in authentic colors.
