Artist's Description

The current owner of this car, “J”, was fortunate to meet the original owner after his father bought it from a junkyard. The original owner heard J’s father talking in a truck stop about the “new” car he just bought, and struck up a conversation. He then joined J’s father in a short trip to see the car, and confirmed it was the one he had purchased new.

The story went that shortly after he and his wife purchased it in 1948, their marriage hit a rough spot and they divorced. She was awarded the car in the divorce settlement, so when he delivered it to her to take possession, he left it running in her driveway – with a brick on the accelerator. The engine threw a rod and was sent to the junkyard shortly thereafter, where it lived until J’s father purchased it as a project car.

The car is now back on stage as a project car. Recently moved into this cozy shop where it’ll get a complete restoration, with ultimate plans of taking J on a cross-country road trip to see the sights of America.
