When first built, the car was owned by Doug Wilson, a member of the Highwaymen car club out of Kitchener Ontario. Here's an archived photo from the club of the 55 Ford next to a Ford T. I know that some club members had a hand in building the car in the late sixties. I believe the car was sprayed by a famous painter from Hamilton who went on to paint motorcycles. Car was then sold in the early seventies to Doug's nephew, Ray Belecque. The local newspaper ran a story on the car's homecoming.
