It took 45 years to accumulate this collection. The following is a little history on the cars.
I first bought the roadster 6-12-1972 out of Wichita, KS. I sold it on 10-26-1974 and bought it back 4-8-2017. It had passed through three owners. The third owner contacted me chasing its history. I later got the opportunity to buy it back.
I bought the Woody 3-1-1975 from an ad in the February 1975 issue of "CARS and PARTS". It's restoration was completed in 1959 by Snyders Garage, Mount Joy, PA. It won a AACA First Place award at Hershey in 1962. Was on the October 1967 cover of Hemmings. It has been in the same place in my folks garage since it was delivered by Pass Port Transport. 43,990 miles on it.
I bought the roadster PU in pieces on 7-25-1976 in East Hartford, CT. The truck had 37,300 miles on it when it was taken apart. It was sold originally to and orchard in northern California. I heard about it at the Lawrence, KS swap meet and chased it down.
