History
I am the 4th owner. Car built right here in Fremont CA.
In 1968 the car started out it's life towing horse trailers on a ranch. Shortly after it moved to it's next owner that held on to it for the remaining years of his life. Once he passed away, he passed it on to his son who also owned it for a significant portion of his life, then sold it to me.
