i have heard much about the britt. mtr. heritage.  i would like to see what
my information for my 59 would be presented.  i know it's history from being
sold new in 61.  but there seems to be some serious difrences between what
was shiped to the usa in 59 and what was sold as new in 61.  i am in contact
with the original owner.  he bought it new as a light green car with a green
interior with sebring front disc brakes and a posi rear axle.  after
striping 11 enamel paint jobs from it during restoration the last 5 colors
were 3 layers of white then green then cherry red.  red was under evrything.
he raced it from new and green being considered bad luck, painted it white
before the first week was up!  and repainted it evry season to keep his
apearance up.  so what happened to the cherry red car from 1959 to 1961?  it
is no secret that dealers raced new cars off the lot/ showroom floor.  was
this car's identity changed to unload a raced new car so it can be sold as a
new car and not used?  very possible.  it still has the 1961 rollbar
installed in it and recieved 1 sprite center and a corvair rim mated to get
a 5" wide rim from the period.  if only it could talk......i probably would
get scolded!  so with this all in my mind how does one contact the motor
heritage folks  and what exactly do they require as far as info?  chuck.
