Included with the car was the original window sticker, original sales contract, both sets of original keys, original title, and the original cancelled checks from when the car was bought new.  The car was sold new at Palmer Lincoln Mercury in Glendale, CA.  Both original dealer license frames are on the car, as well as the 1963 issue black California plates.

I hauled it home on April 4, 2004.  After installing a coil and carb from a '60 parts car I already had, the 292 came to life.  It actually runs very good.  I have since pulled the radiator and gas tank to get them redone.  A new water pump and fuel pump are to be added, as well as a brake system overhaul.
The car has a lot of surface rust, but is still very restorable.  There is some cancer rust in the fenders, but nothing bad.  My plans are to make it a nice daily driver.
