"My father and I have found and purchased one of the four missing 1959 Sebring team cars. As of yet, we have not been able to identify which race number the car wore at Sebring, The car is in need of total restoration (of course, how else do you find them). However, fortunately most all of the special "works" bits appear to be in tact."
Car as found in June 2006. This one is YD2/932.
The 931, 933, and 934 cars are still out there to be discovered!

The guy we bought it from got it from a fellow navy shipmate in the mid 1960s. It was last tagged in 1970 and basically stored since." -- Michael
