From a Collector Pleasant Garden, North Carolina

This car has been in Pleasant Garden, North Carolina its whole life.Purchased new by pharmacists Joe and Tom Davis of Pleasant Garden and Yanceyville, NC. It was later sold to Walter Wright, POW survivor of WWII, of Pleasant Garden. Current owner purchased it in 1991 from Mr. Wright. It was restored in 1994 by Ronald Osbourne a well known Mopar specialist.

The following condition report, while thorough, is not exhaustive as vintage cars have inherent wear and imperfections. We welcome personal inspections.

This 30 year old restoration shows extremely well, with few areas of concern; carburetor stutters at times, seems to be running lean. A little bit of choke clears it up; some minor pitting of brightwork; small are on passenger floorboard bear evidence of a patch on the inside; paint is peeling from inside of wheels; some of the bakelite pieces are cracked or broken; no other apparent concerns.
