    Cool car. You might try contacting Byron at GasserMadness.com. He knows a great deal about old cars like that and has tons of contacts.

    Sorry I don't know the car, but I'm sure glad you posted this - I love discovering old racers I didn't know about! Especially vintage Gassers and Anglias are my favorites. This one's way cool. Good luck. I'd try Byron at Gasser Madness, too.
