VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
First saw the car at the PAC Wichita meet in 1971, part of the Allegheny Packards delegation...LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT! Owner at that time blew the
motor on the drive back to Pittsburgh and had to tow it home. I bought it with blown motor in 1973...bought a 54 Patrician parts car($5!) rebuilding that 359,transferring the 327 steel head onto the 359 block and have driven happily ever since. My brother Michael (co-owner) and I had wonderful times with this car at various national meets in the 7's and 8's, especially 1986 in
Pittsburgh. Sadly he passed away 2+ years ago.

As advised in Post #668 in this thread this car's ownership is passing to MIKE(Tobs) who will raise a new Owner Registry entry for his ownership of the car. Mal(Ozstatman) 2nd October 2021
Vehicle Modifications
MODIFICATIONS:
