It’s long gone, closed in 1980s, sold off over the years. Here’s a link to an article.

A little history of this car. This reproduction Town Car was commissioned to be built by Henry Austin Clark, The builder is Leonard Davis, who was know as a premier early body maker and early restoration specialist. When the HAC Museum closed, the car was auctioned to Dick Williams of the Mennen Personal Care Products Co. When Williams passed, the car was again auctioned, although this owner and potential subsequent owners are not known. Certain is this premium car is still out there and remains one of a number of truly A List reproductions, related to the hobby. I hope someone will come forward to establish where this relevant car lives today.
Regards,
Scott

Gottfried Essert in Germany has one of these, but not this one.
