I thought that S/N sounded familiar. I bought this car, as a derelict, in late 1988, from Darcy Podmoroff, a body-shop operator of Victoria, B.C., Canada, for $30,000, sight unseen. My backer/partner was my friend, Fred Hicks-Beach. Before moving it to Cal., I sold it to my friend Charlie (Karl) Gnadinger of Switzerland for $57,000. The car turned out to be worse than had been described, so Charlie was a bit unhappy. I never actually saw the car, but now that I see the pix I understand why it was converted.
