VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
As you can see from the images, there doesn't appear to be a straight panel on this car, but I purchased it that way, back in 1987, just to get the carburetor to help rebuild the damaged unit on my first Patrician. Sadly, it had been in a lot better shape when I first saw it a decade earlier (perhaps even restorable), but that's a whole 'nuther story. I sold nearly all of the usable parts, kept a few needed for my personal use, and left the car in the field where I found it. Unfortunately, when the land owner passed away, scrap steel was going for $6 a ton, and the hulk disappeared.
