I am a 22 year old recent college graduate. I have always loved old cars, and I had the chance to buy this car at a farm auction in Minnesota. I believe the previous owner was the original owner. I have the car so that it runs fairly well, but there could still be a lot of work to be done on it. I believe the previous owner tried to repaint it with the original scheme, but he didn't do the best job. For a Minnesota/North Dakota farm vehicle it is in remarkably good condition, however. I would like to put more work into the car but my cash flow isn't the best being a recent college graduate, so I plan to keep it as a fixer upper for the years to come.
