The car was purchased from the Barney Pollard collection in Detroit in 1980. It was driven by Mr. Pollard’s son, Barney Jr. while he attended college. The last year the car was plated was 1941. The original working odometer reads 56,350 miles today. The car received a thorough body on restoration between 1980 and 1991 which included new paint, interior, tires, brakes, roof material and trim, handles, radiator shell, fasteners etc. received new nickel plating. The car has been driven approximately 1000 miles since completion of restoration activity and runs and drives very well. The car was selected by film director Ron Howard to be used in the opening scene of the 2005 Academy Award nominated film The Cinderella Man. We have more information on the movie.
