A sick friend of mine started about 20% of it and couldn’t finish so I talked him into selling it to me so I could let him see it completed.
The car has grown into its current state with many local people watching and seeing the transition. It’s hard to miss now and has a reputation around the car show circle of being very loud and nasty!
In 1971 Ferree and his son installed a Chevy 327/350 with a 2B carburetor and manifold from a newly wrecked car, repainted the car while keeping the original black paint on the fenders. He then drove the car to Bonneville, Utah and also made 2 stops in California.
I bought it off of EBay for $99 with 320 watchers.
