    Fair enough Fella, just wondered why anyone would strip that paint to matt black it. Thanks for the reply

    I may have missed it but, does the car still survive today? do you have it?

    The red paint went off, started blistering and cracking. See JapChris's comments earlier. He did plan to get it re-done in the same red & silver paint scheme again but then decided to move to America to pursue his dream of owning a custom/restoration workshop, which he did successfully for a fair few years.

    The car went through a couple of owners I believe before being bought by a guy in Australia who got in touch with Marc and told him he was going to put it back to the way Marc originally had it.

    I have to confess Chris, I don't remember that one! Maybe it was a mate's?? I do remember the '59 Ford retractable that he crashed which was parked there for a while until we had some complaints from some neighbours that it was dangerous because of all the sharp metal protruding out from the front wing! And the bronze Mk 3 Zodiac that a tree fell on to the rear wing of in the '87 storm!

    I remember the car very well and knew Mark too, I didn't even realize he had died, So sad, I was doing my Custom 58 Impala at about the same time so we often talked about our project cars, It was an amazing car for back then as not that much was finished to those standards

    What a beautiful '58, your brother was clearly a talented guy. I'm in the midst of building an AmGraf inspired '55 but it won't be black....

    Thats an awesome looking car, made me smile a lot, thanks for sharing
