According to letters in the car's history file, this car was purchased by a young man from Boise, Idaho around 1974. Sadly he was killed in action in Vietnam soon after and the car sat for some time before being sold to a family friend. The new owner got it back up and running and drove it on a regular basis. It was then put in storage by the next owner who held the car for many years. In the mid-1980s Chassis No.1110 was acquired by Bob Carpenter of Caldwell Idaho, and restored many years ago by Tom Householder.
