    Car believed to have been delivered in Augusta, GA., as Old English White w/ Red interior. Had owners in that area until 1986, when I bought it in non-running status from a classic car dealer (consignment).

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
