James Russell bought it new from a Ford dealer in Waupaca, WI on late 1960. Said he got a great deal on it, traded a '56 Ford in on it.
It was in a wreck in 1961 and was repaired using a fiberglas hood, driven til 1999 when the brakes went out and it hit a tree. The car sat until I purchased it in October 2003.
The odometer shows 99,000 miles, car is rusty and front is smashed, but it still drives down the road. It just looks like hell.
