The way the raffle came to be is as follows -
Elgin Fastener Group is a respected domestic manufacturer of specialty fasteners, with seven facilities in the United States. One of the companies in our portfolio, Chandler Products, manufactured vehicles, and later on made specialty fasteners in the same facility in Euclid, Ohio.
This vehicle has been in the lobby of the building for over 20 years as a show piece.
In 2019, we, the Elgin Fastener Group, consolidated operations into other Cleveland area facilities and needed to move the vehicle.
We elected to partner with one of our customers and promote the raffle for charity.
I will appreciate any bits of information to make the description more accurate - and at the end of the day, it's a $98 opportunity to win a running automobile and help children.
In attempts to make the description as accurate as possible, I've reached out to various sources, including Roger Chandler of the Chandler Car Club, and welcome any insight into the specs. While I am car guy myself, my focus in on 1st gen Camaro and 2nd gen Corvette restomods, so have little knowledge of cars of this era.
All the best,
