Lady driver too. Not sure if that is her pictured. Engine is around but not with the car. Would be neat to see some current pictures.
Thanks for the heads-up on that one Bill! What I'm wondering or thinking did the client have some reason or thought to have the car inspected by JM? But whatever what a great Thanksgiving Holiday that family is having.
Huge congratulations to the owner!

Is there a link to the story or photos of the car as it was found? Would love to see it.

Block for this car existed as of 5 or so years ago. I saw it for sale at an auction I went to in Philadelphia.

Yes, this block was for sale at that auction. Had a giant crack down the center of the valley.

Previous block discussion.

Has anyone seen the car? I had been searching for it about 10 years ago. From what I was told it was cut up to the point there was no way to identify it. If true, I'm curious to know how it was determined to be #56?

The VIN tag remains intact.

JM was hired to examine it. I have been tracking ZL1s for many years and he wanted to know what I knew about it. He shared some of his observations including a photo of the untouched VIN tag.

When he is hired to examine a car, it is a private matter between him and the client. I have to respect that. All I can say, it's the real deal.

This was the car right after the second owner sold it. The second owner moved the firewall back. Note the aluminum dash. It was later painted a different color and renamed. I found and talked to the first five owners and after that the trail went cold. I hope the car resembles something like this? Doesn't look like the factory dash but who knows?
