Since the mortician passed away in 2015, I have pretty much tried to put the car together and run way better than he anticipated.
I have even driven this to a few car shows and yes, I get great looks. It's so fun to drive!
I trailered it once to the first Halloweentown event in St. Helen's Oregon. I then drove to and picked up "Marny" (Kimberly J. Brown) and was police escorted to the center of the event. It was great (see pic of her next to the car, I have a few more too)
Vehicle is currently in dry storagePurchaser responsible for pickup/delivery.
I have a clean/clear title for this 29 Model A. the title doesn't list this as a "home made car" but an actual 29 Model A. Also have 29 model A plates on the back. Registered with "classic tags" which means if you buy this in Oregon, you never have to pay registration fees ever, just title transfer.

There is more in the engine alone for that reserve amount
