I purchased this car approximately 3 months ago from Dean Apostal at Fairlady Products. The story goes that the original owner of the car purchased the vehicle right before being shipped off to Vietnam. He died in Vietnam, and his father held on to the car until 1971 when the second owner purchased the car. He sold it to Dean in 1986. Dean had the intention to restore it, but never did. Now it falls to me. It is in pieces right now.
