From Rodney: "Typical of most "California
Specials", the car was built by hand in a back yard in So.Cal, (Pico-Rivera)
in 1959, and was raced in 1960-1961. Unusual in fact because it was
a coupe, and was nice enough to make Road & Track."
|From Rodney: "I found the car
in 1989 advertised in Hemmings, and tracked it's ownership until Monday
when I purchased the car from Dan Verstuyft in Paso Robles. The poor girl
has been shunted and stripped, but most of it is still there, and it can
now begin the long road back.
"I hope you enjoy these pictures. Interesting
that the car is returning to the same family that spawned her after 53
|More from Rodney: "Images show
the car in a line of four "Specials" at Palm Springs. The #126 Chuck
Porter Mercedes (when it was blue) the #1 Eric
Hauser Lioncage, the #142 Packwood Spl, and #45, the Lew Spencer Devin-Chevy.
The Packwood will now join the other three that have all been preserved."
