VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Found car in virtually unused condition. Has only 60,000 miles. Only really needs carpet. Came with a bunch of books and spares, some of which will be availble after I go through what is there. Car has always been a NW US car. I am the 5th owner. Found what might be the original registration, but it is from early 1959. At that time, the owner was in downtown Portland. I think I have located all but the first owner of the car from documents I found. The owner before me was William Gunderson, in Vancouver, Washington. Before him was A.Larry Daniel, also in Vancouver, Washington. Before that was a John Widmer in Longview, Washington (registration dated 1975, but with a rubber stamp on it dated Oct 12th,1984....maybe the car just sat for almost 10 years!). Before that was a Mrs.Emily Reynolds in Portland, Oregon (document dated 1963 showing only 13,912 miles!). I also have a registration cars that shows Albert and Emily Reynolds at a different address in downtown Portland in 1959. The Reynolds may have been the original owners, but I have not found anything as yet before 1959. Found the original 1956 licence plates in the trunk, and have registered the car with those plates.
