This is a survivor with a wonderful story. A true time-capsule.
It was bought in September of '48 and was given to the author of the article (attached in the pictures) as a graduation gift. He drove it until 1958 and then the car was just parked in a garage until 2012 and only taken out on occasion. Stored virtually untouched for 54 years.
My dad, the 2nd owner, bought this car in 2012. Since it was in storage for so many years my dad put great effort into putting it into perfect running condition. He would not hesitate to drive it anywhere:
$1550 worth of new tiresnew fuel pumpnew water pumpdegreased transmissionnew timing chainrebuilt carboratorhubcaps and trimmings polishednew motor water-tube (nothing done to the pistons or valves)radiator flushreplaced heater valvesre-done brakesnew generator
It'll be harder to find a better origional that this.
Car is located in Sheridan, WY
