What Richard loved most about this car was that it underwent a complete pan-off restoration with more than 800 hours of work.  According to the description, the 4-cylinder engine was completely rebuilt and almost every piece on the car has been rebuilt or replaced. In addition, only 20 miles were put on the car since the 2009 restoration.

Richard plans on using it as a “Sunday Funday” car and a perfect way to head to the lakes around Dallas with friends and family.
