The original owner moved to the state of New York for two years where in 1969 to 1970 he raced this car at famous east coast drag strips: Utica, Lebanon Valley, Dover, etc. The original drag strip decals are fading, but still attached to the right rear quarter window. Upon relocating to Iowa, the car was stored for some twenty years in a shed near Lambs Grove, Iowa.
When I purchased the car in 2001 it had 31,500 miles on the odometer. It has been restored to near original specs.
We drive this car throughout the summer months here in Iowa, attending car shows or just cruising. As of 2020, it shows 76,000 plus miles on the OD.
