Owner's Comments

The car was assembled on 5/22/63 and shipped from the factory to it's first owner in West Virginia. The second owner lived in Tennessee and relocated to Michigan where he did a large portion of the restoration through the 1980's and '90's. This was inclusive of paint, new top, new seats and carpet, found an original radio, the radiator was redone and I know the frame was welded. As he recently passed away, the car was sold to me through a broker. I've had to do very little to the car other than minor maintenance as the car seems to have been sitting for a few years. With 147,000 miles, the car is very roadworthy and handles and runs great (other than a overheating problem I hope to have corrected with a 160 degree thermostat and fresh coolant). I've been able to secure manuals for this model on the internet and would be happy to share this information if anyone is in need of it (via fax, email, etc.). I've also been able to find promotional items such as advertisements and sales brochures on ebay. I've noticed stuff for many different models there. Feel free to contact me at my email address.
