This car has a touching history. The original buyer kept it for 18 months. Atthat point, it was bought as a high school graduation present for the 2nd owner(purchase document included in sale), who owned the car for 49 years. It wasgaraged for a long period and was restored by the owner's husband as a gift forhis wife in 2005. Sadly, she contracted cancer shortly afterwards and passedaway. From that point, the car was garaged and not driven at all. I purchasedthe car in 2016.
This car is for the true collector and offers a rare opportunity to own aclassic masterpiece of Americana. Do not let the opportunity to own this carpass you by.
