It was sold to a Richard Barlow in early 1977. Then the car was sold to Chet Kenoyer in mid-1977. Gerald and Shelia Gooch purchased the care in late 1977 and kept the car until October of 1988 when Richard Gunn purchased it. In October of 2003 the new owner Mike Zappa started an extensive restoration process .


In 2007 I bought the car from mike and have finished off some small bits on the car, but all the credit for this restoration is Mikes.
