Those paper assets you got with the car are amazing and in amazing shape! There are a few I hadn't seen before. Good luck with your project!

So this past weekend I was moving cars around the shop and I moved the s600 to the corner. I have another project that I need to attend to before I start on the S. However I was searching through the car and found a few things in the glove box that I took pictures of.

If you look closely it mentions the ship name, voyage. Where it was being shipped from "Okinawa" to SF. Based on what the last owner told me it appears his story matches what he told me about his grandfather importing the car straight from Japan.

Image

In the envelope there was an extra set of keys, some very old Band-aids and a few OLD aspirin.

Image

Here is the rest of the stuff that was in the glove box. The only thing missing in the picture it’s a black woman’s scarf.

Image


Some sort of log book and a OLD map from 1967

Image

Image


Receipt from Will Rogers Turn pike & some news paper clipping. Not sure how this relates but it was in the address/log book. There are a bunch of contact numbers in the address book. Im debating if I should phone these people & see if they know any history about the car.? What do you guy think???

Image

Image


Image

I also removed the wisconsin corvette club badge after I snapped it moving the car around. DAMN!! im gonna have to weld it back together.

Image

I found more goodies in the trunk. Will upload those pictures and post soon.


Thx

Very cool. I don't understand how that survived so long in Cheeseland, of all places! Must have been stored in the winters. Good luck with the project!

Yes, it was stored indoors through the winters. It took its last drive around west bend WI sometime back in 1969 before it was parked due to clutch swap that never went through.

Right now Im working on other one of my cars. Which is taking up all my time & money but as soon as Im done getting that sorted. The restoration will start on this. Or maybe I’ll just repair any rust & try to keep it as original as possible?? A lot of people not just on this site have mentioned I should keep it keep it in the current condition. I don’t know.

Ronny,

Thank you for the kind words.

The drive was about 2200 each way to pick up the car. I think it was a total of 8 states we went through to get the car.

This is a great to see this car being restored! I have to say I am jealous for sure! There are so few of these S series cars in the US and I would love to have one. Keep up the good work! I will be watching

No way. The swap would make a ton of power but the old engine, as weak as it is, sounds like the gods.

Thank you!!! Although s2k swap can be very tempting. I am somewhat of a purist when a car is complete & original. I did find another s600 shell in Sac a few years back that I considered buying so I could do an s2k swap. However it sold QUICK.

What Ill end up doing is have my motor rebuilt. Plus s2k motor doesnt have a redline of 11k :lol:
