I am trying to track down this Pacer convertible that my parents owned from 1959 to March of 1965 when they sold the car to a collector from Grand Island, NE.  Dad bought the car for my mom - it had been traded in on a '59 Oldsmobile convertible.  My dad traded a '52 Studebaker convertible in on the Edsel.  At that time, the car was in excellent, original condition and only had 57,000 miles.
As a 16 year old, I took my first driver's license exam in this car, and often took it on dates.
I have the serial number from an old insurance form.  Could you add this car to your register, as I am certain that it is a collector's pride and joy.  Perhaps this will help track it down.

If you know where this car is today please contact Craig Reisser, 311 South 52nd Street, Omaha, NE 68132.  He would be very interested to hear about its fate.  Thanks!
