VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
The car was purchased in 1982 by a member of a car club here in Winnipeg and imported in September of that year. Over the next 30 some odd years a fair amount of work was done, including restoration of the wood substructure for the body. Eventually dealing with effects of age the man passed away and the widow sold the car to me. I'm continuing the labor of love in getting this beautiful machine back up and running. Original color is unknown and therefore I'm looking into modern - yet period(ish) correct colors and combinations that would enhance the car and not hinder it in any way shape or form
Vehicle Modifications
MODIFICATIONS:
Due to Canadian Law I will have to install turn signals. These will be easily concealed within the original tail light - tail light brackets will have to be made at a shorter height so that I can utilize 2 tail lights without impeding the use of the rumble seat step. The front cowl lights will be used as the front turn signals as here in Canada we aren't allowed to have "White Headlight like lights above headlight height "
