History: Dan drove the car as a daily driver and took it to the drag strip on weekends. After much enjoyment, he sold the car to the second owner three years later. While driving to Camp LeJeune, the new owner burnt a piston, so he left it at a repair shop. Upon his return, he found the engine, drivetrain, and Air Grabber Hood stripped from the car. He subsequently sold it to the third owner, Jerry Springer, who restored the car and got it back on the road in 1975. Unfortunately, one evening, the car caught fire in his driveway. When the fire was put out, the engine, hood, dash, windshield, and convertible top were destroyed. The car was sent to a metal scrap yard and crushed.
