Lot #698 - From the personal collection of Addison Brown. A very special custom retro speedster created by well-known custom auto designer and builder Gary Wales on a completely original California chassis. Engine is a 4-liter inline 6 with a 3-speed manual transmission. This is an opportunity to own something unique and fun with an artistic flair. Per Gary Wales, creator and builder: Gary Wales discovered this little gem amongst a car collection, most of which was dilapidated from neglect. The original body had collapsed around the chassis and engine thus protecting them and leaving them in good condition despite lack of use. Like the Phoenix resurrected from the dead, Gary Wales brought this car back to life with a retro body style complete with wood wheels, leather interior and custom pinstriping. The completed car is something anyone can have fun with while experiencing a historical period with confidence combined with an artistic flair.
