Mine was purchased by the previous owner in the late 60's in Chula Vista California, then brought to the Seattle area. It was a driver for a while, then a race car that had a catastrophic clutch failure. I think the damage happened in early 70's and he parked it. I bought it in the early 80's as a young teen, got it back together and running/driving (still with the floor missing over the bellhousing) but never register it, so technically not back on the road. I sold it to an uncle around '91. I ended up moving to the east coast in the late 90's, and last summer drove from Maine to Washington towing my car trailer, bought the car (57 2dr hardtop, belair) back from my uncle and hauled it home.
It's no where near ready for the road. The good news though, I did finally patch the damaged section of floor that the clutch took out. I'll be doing rockers, floor sections and some odds and ends of rust repair soon.
