The Big Winner of the Jay Leno raffle is Chris Prondzinski.
Chris won the trip for two to visit the Jay Leno collection in Burbank California. Congratulations!
Ken Ehrenhofer presided over the drawing while Rusty Gould, President of the Model A Restorers Club had the honor of drawing the winning ticket.
Ken had his eye on the bus for over 40 years and when the owner passed on and an auction was held Ken had the opportunity to make the purchase.
The previous owner Lee Roy Hartung of Glenview Illinois was a scrap dealer and a major collector of all things antique. The rear wheels of the bus where frozen and a flat bed was used to get it to it’s new home. Ken and the barn crew got it running and gave rides at the Annual Swap meet at Ken’s home. Ken has donated it to the Model A Ford Foundation to be used for giving rides to visitors to the Gilmore Museum upon completion of the restoration. Currently the bus is undergoing a full restoration and the Coastal Carolina A club will have the Chassis completed before the end of this year. When finished it will be only one of three adult passenger buses built by the Union City Bus company to exist. Follow the restoration as we go along…..
