Lot #415.1 - Less than 29,000 original miles. Purchased new in 1959 in Panama by a US ARMY Officer, Jake Paul. Because of the tropical climate, the car was not equipped with a heater. It is equipped with a rare tri-carburetor set up. This car was raced in Panama by Jake Paul and won often including a First Place in a 300km race. The plaque for the win is affixed to the dash. It was shipped back to the US in the '60s and stored for over ten years. It was purchased by dirt track racer Richard Duckworth in 1970 but the car sat in storage until a restoration was completed in 1976. The car comes with the original Panama title.
