Tear down is fun, I think so anyways.  What are the original colors, and are you going to keep them?   :wave:

What is the resto plan?  Green on white stripes and white interior?  Are you keeping it original?  If so what is the original set up?

Looks like you have a good starting point.  What size engine are you going to have?

Hezzel,

Extremely nice project.  Must say that is a lot of options.  Good to see that you are going to stay all original.

The car was bought in Long Island, New York . And i have found fuel tickets from Dix Hills in Long Island. 765 Deer Park
Sunoco. And on the fuel tickets the name John Hepner.

Have had some hopes to find the original owner to see if he or she have some pictures of it when it was new...

          Is there someone who can find him or help me locate the owner I would be most grateful.

Thanks /Hezzel
