Finished as originally supplied on November 11, 1965 to Mrs.
Dorothy Storer of Indian Creek Island, Miami Beach, Florida in
Shell Grey with Black Connolly hides, this air-conditioned example
has never been involved in any sort of collision nor has it been
the victim of structural corrosion.
Mrs. Storer's husband George Storer was the founder of Storer
Broadcasting Systems, the forerunner of today's Comcast. On June
10, 1983 after her demise in June 1982, ownership of the car passed
to her driver, Robert A Bouchard who sold it to Vantage Motorworks
one week later.
After a thorough service and review it was resold on September 26,
1983 to an avid collector from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The mileage
reading at that time was 44,316.
It was repurchased from that gentleman by ourselves in April 1993
at 57,184 miles in good order. We resold it to its fourth
registered owner, a resident of Houston, Texas. As part of our
preparations, the faded exterior lacquer was refinished and the
original hides were re-dyed to Light Grey to suit. The interior
woods were re-lacquered at the same time.
During the ensuing quarter century, the car was well looked after
by the recognized premier independent specialist service facilities
of the area. Upon our re-acquisition in April 2018 it did require a
thorough recommissioning and servicing to bring it to its current
condition. The half-century old interior hides were unsurprising
cracked and the original carpets proportionately worn. Fresh
correct Black hides and proper wool broadcloth carpets were part of
our current preparations and are shown in the photos.
The original books in their jacket and complete tools accompany
this fine performer.
