It is a 37,000-mile example, that was delivered to Lucius Beebe and his life-partner, Charles Clegg, on May 28, 1958. The original cost was nearly $35,000. It was acquired by Mark Tuttle; at that time, it had traversed 33,324 miles. Mr. Tuttle took fine care of the car and it was acquired from his estate by the current owner in 2008, showing just 37,633 miles.
The original Rose Beige lacquer has since been stripped and the body freshly refinished in Pewter to compliment the tan hide interior. Correctly ducted air conditioning has been added, and the car is a delight to drive. All of the original books and an extensive history have also survived.
