Hi All I recently exchanged my Corvette for this 32 coupe and am trying to get some history on it as the guy i exchanged with only had a brief spec. Does any one know this car ? I know the car went to Belgium at some stage and doing a search a guy called Gary swain had it in 2006

Any history would be really usefull

Thanks

John

It was owned by a mate Ian from Southgate before Gary bought it, although he drove it as he got it from a guy at, i think Wheels day. I will speak to him tommorow and find out a few details

As said earlier Larry Ward painted it with Neil Melliard flames,
Engine was a new crate 350 before Ian Ling owned it,
Looked over it when Ian owned and it appeared to be a Tony Theron chassis and an
'american street rod parts' glass body.

Cheers
