According to a copy of the original bill of sale, the car was first sold on April 26, 1963, to Martin Ganzler Jr. of New Brunswick, New Jersey. The car was originally Fire Engine Red with Cream leather upholstery, had a Becker Mexico Radio, white wall tires and a box for the cover boot. According to Frank Spellman, the car was retained by Ganzler through the mid 1970’s. Brokered then through Ed Jurist of Nyack, New York, the roadster was purchased by John Sellstrom of Greenhurst, New York. In 1989, while still displaying less than 15,000 miles, the roadster was traded back to Juris and then sold to New York resident Gene Albert. Albert retained the car for about 5 years. The car was acquired in 2000 by a collector in Texas.
The car currently displays 18,452 miles with period documentation. The car retains its tool roll, jack and owners manual. Hard top and soft top. This car is fully serviced and needs nothing.
