VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
I just bought the car from a gentleman in Paso Robles, CA who bought it at Mecum Auctions in Anaheim (November 213). The only history he had on the car was that it was in a personal auto collection/museum in Everett, WA (Route 66 Museum?) for many years and may have been in Texas before that. I plan on sorting it out and using it for weekend pleasure driving as well as attending local car shows and club tours.
