12-15-2003:  From Corvette Enthusiast Magazine, February 2004, pg. 22-23:

  • Car had been in Flint, MI since 1957 and was purchased by a guy who spotted it on a used car lot in Birmingham, MI. He drove it back to Flint, MI where it was passed on to several different owners.
  • Car was hit in 1965. A large hole was punched in the trunk lid and both rear fenders sustained damage. Instead of being repaired, the car was brought to the owner's house and stored in a shed until David Foutch bought it in 1974. He stored the car in a garage after buying it where it has not been touched since.
  • Car is mostly complete, but in need of total restoration, including body repair, parts replacement, paint, glass, interior, tires, chassis, etc.
