I owned this car for a few years. A friend of mine in Junction City, Kansas bought the car at an estate auction in the late 80’s and a year or so later offered to sell it to me. It was a 4 speed car and at the time it had a 4 barrel carb on it. When we picked it up we drove on to the Omaha Nationals and I had it parked in the parking lot at the hotel. and there was a lot of interest in it. I kept it for a few years, drove it a little and then needed money and sold it to a guy in Arkansas. Years later I’m sure I saw it sold on ebay. Lost track of it until I saw the picture of the car in the cars without owners section on this website. Appeared to be located in Montana. It took 2 or 3 years but I finally found the owners name and phone number, thanks to a friend on this website. It turns out that the car was destroyed in a forest fire that swept through their area, I believe in 2012. I had hoped to buy it back but it wasn’t to be.
