Bought new off the showroom by James Peck. His brother Ron owns it now. He put a 460 in it. The original engine was a 351.

Just sat down and watched the video in the front office with one of my Fathers old friends. Leonard sold cars here in the mid 50's. We had a good laugh, I reminded Leonard is has been 62 years since he worked here. He is in his late 80's and just recently sold his body shop. He is in great shape for being a body man most of his life.

Congrats on a great family tradition that we do not see much of anymore. I started my business almost 40 years ago and with daughters and no sons it will probably end with me.
