He lived in Beverly Hills till his death in 1973, and thats when the car was sold.
The engine was rebuilt about 3500 miles ago, the millage shows just under 10,000 but I am sure it was rolled back when it had its restoration, cause in no way does it seam to be a 110,000 mile car. i have the original carb but it has been replaced with an edelbrock and boy it runs beautiful. The suspension has been redone new coils in the front and new leafs in the rear. the wipers work. The front seat have been redone by the previous owner in vinyl, They look great but needs to be redone in leather to be correct. as far as the rest of the interior it is correct leather.
The steering box has been recently replaced. i have replaced the speaker system with a hidden audio unit so you can't see it but you can play music off your iPod/iphone and it sounds great :). tires are American classic radials from Coker tires. All windows work except for the passenger rear quarter window but i am working on getting that fixed at the moment. seat moves forward & back. turn signals work. brakes work, The Treadle Vac was rebuilt back in oct of 2015 and new Brake shoes and wheel cylinders were put on at that time.
