VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
My father purchased this car from a car collector friend of his sometime back in the 1970's. It had been hit in the grill and driver's side front fender. The fenders, grill, and running boards were off the car when he got it, but they were there. The engine was said to have been rebuilt and the interior had been redone in tan mohair. Since then, I've found that that is not correct and should have been broadcloth, but, boy, does everyone love that mohair. This became our after school project with my sister and I being tasked with grinding rust and stripping paint. My father worked on the car on the weekends. It was where I learned to always bring him 3 sizes of wrenches regardless of which size he asked for. This was in the days before easy access to information via the internet. Back then, Hemmings and Old Cars Weekly were the only way we really had to track down parts and money was tight. To order parts took a long time due to swapping mail back and forth. Eventually he got it back on the road and my sister and I loved to ride in the rumble seat during the summer. Hated riding in it during the fall. After I moved away, he had the car converted to 12 volt. This car was my father's pride and joy and I inherited it when he passed away. It stayed registered and garaged in a barn in Connecticut where I would only start and move it when I went there for two weeks every year. In July of 2018 I had it shipped to me in Sarasota, Florida. It is garaged and still running. It's not a concourse car (never was, never will be) and the lacquer paint definitely is showing it's age but it still get lots of compliments.
