That was my car, bought it in Fayetteville, AR. In about 1987. Sold it to Tom Powels in about 1990. Fun little car, I think it's Mercury body no. 18.

That's a well-traveled car! AR to CA to VA -- it'll be interesting to see where it goes next. :-)

Kim -- I believe you bought it from Bill Younkin, one of my Model T mentors.

Is Bill related to Jim of light plane autopilot fame?

This car has been on Hemmings site for a couple months. At the asking price it will be there for a while. But it wouldn't break my heart if it sold for that.

John -- Yes, Bill was the older brother of Jim, who made the autopilots. They also had another older brother, Bob. All three were involved with aircraft and old cars. Jim is the only one now surviving.
