History
Owned by a lady in Anchorage, AK. It had sat in her garage for quite a few years, because her son bought it before he joined the Army and went off to war. Well he never returned home, and it just sat in her garage covered under boxes with nothing showing but the rear end. At the time of the purchase the car had around 12,000 miles. My father bought it and restored it. He owned it for about 10+ years. I bought it from him in '99 with 17,427 miles. Once I had completed Navy boot camp at Great Lakes, IL I bought it from my dad. It sat up at my parents garage in Duluth, MN for 7 yrs til I was able to bring it down to TX. It sat in by inlaw's garage for couple years. Than about 2 years ago it finally made it over to MS where I'm currently stationed. I finally got it running for the 2010 Crusin The Coast car show. Been tinkering with it off and on since than. Being in the military makes it hard to get the time that I really need so I can work on the car.
