charlespetty Posted February 14 Share Posted February 14 Sold new in San Francisco by Edward Lowe Motors on Van Ness Ave, but not until 1931. The story that came with this car is that it sat in the dealership unsold until 1931. The first owners didn't like the original factory green color scheme and agreed to purchase the car if the dealer repainted it dark blue with black fenders. The green is still visible in a few areas where the blue paint is worn. The body has never been repainted since, but all of the black was resprayed years ago. The interior is mostly original with the front driver's seat reupholstered in a near perfect match to the original material. This car has been known in the hobby since 1960 when it was pulled out of a garage in San Francisco. The engine was rebuilt in the 1980s after an inexperienced owner ran it out of oil and fried the bearings. It still runs beautifully and has a nice patina. 13 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
