Great history on this one. Lots of stills but no rescue video. I and my best childhood friend actually went to Panama City in this car with our families back in 1966 when we were 8 & 10 years old. It sat under this shed for 25 years. The owner had someone else inquiring about purchasing it, but with my history of the car he agreed to sell it to me, $500. He actually thought with a little carb work it should start right up, lol. Told me it had brand new radial tires! After getting it home the engine ended up being seized up, but he was right about the tires-- 25 year old brand new tires! A complete refurbishment took me about three years once I got started. The owner wanted me to bring it back by once it was repaired, unfortunately he passed away before I could get it completed. My childhood friend and I intend to drive the ole girl back to Panama City this spring. Gonna be fun! I've also got a bunch of in-process photos during the refurbishment.
