Wow I inspired my mate to buy that car back in 2005 ish as I didn't have the money at the time to buy it . It came from Oregon , but was originally a car from Neilsen Motors in Redding and got imported by my friend and got sold to Bob hamilton and he has owned it for at least 10 of those years I would say .
I didn't know the finer details of them back then , but it is a stunning car with the incorrect trim and probably other little details , but i doubt you will find a better original one these days .
Here is a pic of it when it was on ebay all those years ago .

yes Ray this is a reluctant sale
the car drives like new
what attracted me to the car when I went to look at it in Melbourne was that none of the Philips head screws had been bruised through removal and similarly nuts and bolts had the corner profiles sharp and not like they had ever seen a spanner!
trouble is that as with its previous owner it was not being driven and it it isn't driven its a piece of furniture!
