VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
This car was originally delivered to Roy E. Conger who I believe may have been from Iowa.  In the late 80's the car belonged to a H. Hedgcock and had not yet been restored.  It changed hands at the Hershey meet in 2000 and was in VERY good condition at that time.  In Feb 2005 Robert S. & Julia A.Zuhone sold it to Dale Edward Lynch of Iowa City, Iowa from whom I bought it in June 2013.
