Default Mancuso Chevrolet

Any info on Mancuso Chev that used to reside in Skokie Ill? I know back in the day they were into performance cars as well. They were heavy into 409's early on and had a 'black '63 Z-11 Chevy raced by Bures Hall, thanks.

If I had received this letter two months earlier I'd have a Cortez Silver Deuce in my garage today.


And these came in the same envelope.
