VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
This car was bought in rather rough condition by a friend who had it for several years. He got it into driving condition with new tires and exhaust, then was transferred out of the state so I bought it from him. Other than sanding off some of the gray paint over the original, I've not done much to it and it has sat outdoors for many years but is now indoors in my workshop.

I will soon be reworking the brake’s hydraulic system and replacing the water pump housing so that I can find if it still runs and has not suffered and water jacked cracks in the extreme cold of the shop where it is. I expect to at least have to replace the freeze plugs which may have rusted, based on the orange stain on the concrete under it.

The only time I ever drove it, the brakes failed as I was pulling into a parking space, causing some front end damage and damage to the newly-recored radiator. Everything was repaired but, other than driving around the yard, it hasn't been on the street again since then, which was in the mid-'80s.

It is shown here in 2008, freshly off the car carrier and just minutes in the workshop, not even moved into its current position yet.
