Originally sold by Hammersley Motors, Inc. in Lynchburg, VA.  One of two 1960s sold there new.  Car spent most of its life there until bought by the King family in the late 1980s.  I initially had my photo taken with this car in 1990 when I was 13 years old.  It was sitting in a big field outside.  In 1996 the car surfaced again and was for sale.  We bought it at that time and had started restoration when my dad died.
