Straub owns a chain of Specialty Food Stores in the St. Louis Area. Mrs Straub drove this car from 1955 to 1968. It is reported that the car had Transmission problems and was taken to Performance Motors for service. The Ultramitic Transmission was repaired. Because of miles and age the owner inquired if Performance Motors knew of anyone who might be interested in buying the car. Car was purchased by Performance Motors and put in storage withmany other collector cars.The original emblems are in good condition.
