This car was under restoration until owners died in 1985.  The high unit number is a factory error on the dataplate.

This car was sold new by Galpin Ford in San Fernando.  This may be a one-owner car.  It was advertised in the mid-1980s for $5,000 but had no takers.  It has been sitting outdoors neglected since the mid-70ís.  The present owners have refused all offers.
