Before anybody moved it from its Chicago location back in the mid 90's, where it had been for years, made a play to purchase this car.
I may be getting some of my old files back on the car, which may be interesting.

I did report & discuss the car with Mr Vinnie, in quite detail.
427 engine, 428 engine, early steering column,  weird serial number, weird serial number etc.
With respect,

Is this the first futuristic exotic in the world?
Size of an ac cobra, but built in 1935 !
