I bought this car in 1974. Both of my sons came home from the hospital in this car the day after they were born. I slowly restored the car over the years, and in 2006 took it all apart again for a complete body and interior restoration. Here are some photos taken over the years.
This photo was taken in 1975, shortly after I bought the car.
