As you might remember JP, this car does have a 1953 331 and the LaSalle 3 speed. Where were the resister packs located? I glanced under the hood of our car today, but didn't look for anything like that. It has a 12V battery, relocated to the pass. side fender.
Who is the "expert" on these cars? I've talked to everyone I know of that might have some clues. While our car has a million clues that point it to being a Frick car, there's nothing that absolutely pins it down. Just recently my uncle was poking around and found a filled hole for a spotlight, which was also an option Frick had available.
Thanks for the comments on the site. I need to update it again as I do have some new info. I was just recently told of a car in NY with a Frick builder plate under the hood. I need to call that guy and see what the story is.
I'm really hoping that the TW article will hopefully bring some information out of the woodwork. The PO owned this car in college back in 1965, and kept it until he passed away 20 years ago. He fully restored the car in '89.
I have decided that if this car is not a Frick car, it's one VERY close, well built copy.
BTW.. Does anyone have any pictures of the frame from Bob Bee's car? I'd like to compare engine mounts to the ones in our car.
