From the Estate of Bobby O'Briant of Durham, North Carolina. His love for automobiles, and building one of a kind custom custom creations in his garage, left an indelible mark in the local Hot Rod community. Club memberships include the National Street Rod Association (life-time member); and the Bull City Street Rod Association (charter member). He built two other cars that have found chrerished homes, a 1940 Plymouth, and an early Ford T-Bucket. These cars routinely traveled all over the Southeast to local car shows such as Myrtle Beach, Pigeon Forge, and Charlotte. Not trailered, driven..... This was his last project, and maybe the finest in finish.
The following condition report, while thorough, is not exhaustive as vintage cars have inherent wear and imperfections. We welcome personal inspections.
The car is very clean from top to bottom; date code on rear wheels is obstructed by the rim, front tires dated 1910; no apparent concerns.
