My '63

My parents bought it in 65. Developed an issue (oil leak I think). Dad got a good deal on another car instead of fixing the old one. Parked it in 74-75 at a local farm. Farmer was having an auction in 86 (ish). Thought the farmer might sell it, went and got it. (It actually turned over, we would have drove it home if it would have had good gas in it.) There it sat until about 2000, when the parents moved and towed it approximately 300 miles across the Colorado mountains. Not quite a year ago my mother informed me my dad had decided to let me have it after decades of my asking for and him realizing he would probably not get around to fixing it (honey-do list to long I guess). So earlier this year I went and towed it back across the mountains. That's my story.

Good luck Jerry, I bought my first 63 when I was 17 in 1967. when I retired in 2008, I decided to buy a retirement gift to myself, yup my 4th 1963, identicle to the first one. Guess I like 63's

Good story about the car. Hope all the years of sitting outside didn't hurt it to bad.
