BOUGHT IT FOR HIS WIFE NEW IN CALIFORNIA IN THE SPRING OF 1957 OFF
THE SHOW ROOM FLOOR IN LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA. THE GENTLEMAN AND
HIS SON TOOK THE CAR TOTALLY APART AND CAR RECEIVED A FULL FRAME

PASSED AWAY AND AT THAT POINT HE WANTED NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CAR
AS A RESULT OF THE HEART BREAK AND CAR SAT IN HIS SONS GARAGE FOR
