Last year I drove the car on the Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour seven cities in seven days, 2,180 miles.
The car has been in 33 states over the last 44 years. Since I have owned it, I have restored the paint and body three times, most recently in 2016. Always have tried to improve the condition and performance. Because of advancing age, it is time for this rare vehicle to have a new caretaker. Car is located in SW Florida.
