|Detailed History||“This car was built by a buddy of mine, who has built several hot rods over his many years. We built two cars together at his shop – his 32 and my 1950 Ford. We both worked on both cars. Mine was a complete frame-off and his was a “from-scratch” project. Construction began in 1996 was finished in 1998. It was professionally appraised in April, 1999 at $50,000.
The plan was for us to cruise to Hot August Nights in Reno with our wives when the cars were finished. He had only driven the car on short hops to the local Starbucks and, tragically, his wife died of cancer shortly after the car was finished.
I told him that, should he ever decide to part with it to call me and I would buy it from him. He called me in July 2007 and told me that he had lost interest in it (too many memories) and, if I still wanted it, to come and get it. I purchased it from him in August of 2007 and have put about 500 miles on it since (only to local shows). I have made only minor upgrades to it since I purchased it (just personal preference stuff).
I have all receipts and build documentation plus a photo album documenting the build process. I also have a California car cover which will go with the car.”
