History
The car was built in Kansas City, Missouri, then delivered to Gary Cooper Chev. Co. in Prague, OK. Car was sold new by City Chevrolet in Muskogee, OK. I have researched the original owner, but cannot locate his name. Terry and Pam Howard were the second owners also of Muskogee, OK, and purchased the car in 1983, with about 51,000 miles. The third owner was Bruce Brady in Midland, Texas, he purchased the car in April, 1986. At that point it had 86,000 miles. I am the fourth owner and purchased the car on May 28, 1994. It had 99,695 miles on the odometer. In the last 22 years I have rebuilt the front and rear suspensions, complete brake overhaul, and in 2010 I decided to start a frame off restoration. I have been driving the car the last two years while completing painting, interior, etc.
