Actually, I have most of the car...which is an interesting story.

The car came to us about twelve years ago. It was owned by an airline pilot stationed in South America. The car had 55k on it and was totally virgin except for a froze motor and dead paint from sitting in under trees for years. He wanted to totally restore the mechanicals and the paint. We pulled the motor and he took the body to a paint shop. We totally rebuilt the motor with new pistons. The motor sat a while until the body was painted. It was brought to us without lights, bumpers, window trim.

The car was assembled and he went to take it to the body shop for final assembly, they had went out of business. He was never able to find the trim and never came back for the car. It still has only 55k on all the running gear and the motor has about ten miles on it.
