The car was sold near Brandon, Manitoba, Canada.
It was hit on the left side with less than 20,000 miles on it in the mid- seventies.
The car had three more owners who used it regularly until the early eighties.
The next owner was going to drag race the car so he had the engine and transmission built, ran out of money and the car
sat at the body shop for several years, then when the shop owner passed away the car was bought by a person we know.
He drove it from there to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada where a friend of mine bought it.
My friend never drove it so it sat in a storage compound for seventeen years before he sold it to me in 2009.
