|General Description||This car was found with the help of EMMR.org on April 7, 2002. Most of it was there, but it had sat for many years so it all had to be completely rebuilt before it could be run again. Our plan had always been to first put the car back together again and run it at speed and have a lot of fun with it. We did. Then in 2011 the decision was made to retire this particular car from it days of running hard and to create a time capsule of Edmunds cars in the early 1980s - restoring this one as exact as possible to its 1983 condition. That work is currently underway with a completion date set for mid 2012.|
