    I don't know where the car is today, but I do remember hearing that it was structurally rusty, and that he hadn't bought it new, but had bought it as a hobby car some time later. I can remember it from the old museum; it was a Bermuda Brown '65 Daytona Wagonaire. One thing I particularly liked about '65's is that Daytonas had the same interior as the '64 Cruiser--the Daytona interior was bumped-up a notch from '64--and I remember Churchill's car having that very nice Cruiser-style vinyl interior in brown, IIRC.
