The car was pulled out of a barn in Lake Goerge, NY in 2000.
When we bought the car it was in cardboard boxes. The car was fully restored by Steinway Auto Body down to every nut and bolt.
All the hard work resulted in the car scoring a 99.6 at the NCRS National in 2002.

My asking price is $200,000.
