SUBSEQUENT OWNERS: Unknown
Comment: No record of subsequent owners is available. It is assumed the car spent its entire life in California as it was discovered North of San Francisco.
The outside body is surprisingly solid but the floorpan is gone completely. Importantly, the V-shaped Sunroof panel is with the car.
Key part of the interior are present, like the front seat frames, steering wheel, some gauges, a shifter and some miscellaneous parts. Hoewever, part hunting will be required.
The engine case is present with the car. Again, additional parts will need to be sourced.
Transmission is with the car.
