My father purchased the car in 2004. After many years of pure enjoyment, he decided to do another restoration to bring the car up to the level of perfection he felt it deserved. The second restoration started around 2013. The car was completely disassembled. During the disassemble, it became apparent the car had more body filler and more substandard fabrications than what he felt was acceptable, so he had a good portion of the car re-fabricated. Unfortunately, during the lengthy restoration process, my father developed cancer and passed away. After his death we decided to sell the car as "a work in progress." The second restoration work is top notch. The car will be sold with all the original parts from original restoration ( the list above lists only some of the components). You can reuse these parts or decide to take the car in a completely different direction. The choice is yours. While there will still be some work to complete therestoratio, the car is at a point where you can finish it out to be the car of your dreams
Happy to answer whatever questions I can. Jack
