Owner: David E. Curl
A junk heap that I was anxious to get rid of until some guy followed me home on my 1st time out wanting to buy it. The more he talked the more I figured I’d better keep it. In parades it seems to be a real crowd pleaser especially among the Seniors who remembered these things running around the neighborhoods.
Owners: Richard and Carol Barsky
Tex Freeland, a local restorer, owned it for a number of years. He sold it to another guy, who went through a divorce and cashed out in 1983. The sports coupe was displayed at the joint meet in 1986 in Wisconsin. The upholstery was done by Stan Jones of Portland, Oregon. He is no longer living, but was truly an artist and did many national winners. Steve and Judy finished the car (on the way to the meet!!!) She etched the windows in a parking lot in Minnesota someplace. The car won a MARC of Excellence and MAFCA Award of Excellence at the joint meet, as well as a car game! After that, the car has appeared in many various places–it was on display at the joint meet in Tacoma in 1994, it was used as a training tool for the car judges, The car was displayed at dealer showrooms, Henry Ford’s old assembly plant in Seattle, at banquets, car shows, etc.
