We are 145 off. Interesting story. Charlie's 979 mile car is a 2C.My VIN is 159084 - out of curiosity, how close is it to yours?
I contacted the second owner's wife of my car who's husband inherited it from the original owner. The woman who bought it new moved to AZ shortly after when retired and the car went back to IL after she passed away 30-something years later . The second owner's wife said the car was originally purchased new by her husband's aunt at the same time the aunt's husband (uncle) purchased an identical one. It would be funny to see if that car (sibling) is out there. Maybe I should make a post in this.
The second owner's wife sold the car to a local kid when her husband passed away and then I bought it from that third owner. Zfool checked this car out at one point in IL and posted pictures of it with the air cleaner on it. When I got it, the carb and air cleaner were in the trunk and there was an Edelbrock carb on it. I'm curious if Zfool checked the car out when the second owner was selling or the third owner.
