The car was found and purchased in Sealy, Texas in 2010 and was then shipped to Perth, Western Australia. The body was stripped back to bare metal and every panel was straightened. Many, many pounds of lead were melted and removed from the roof allowing the rust to be remedied and the light tunnels rebuilt.
In 2015, the car was painted, the rebuilt engine and transmission installed, and the car was brought back to the USA where the interior was completed in 2020.
Receipts available to prove over $70,000 invested in the restoration of this beauty.
