Bing Crosby's 1942-6719?  Early pic taken during restoration.  I had computer glitch and lost quite a few pictures, hopefully I can find more later.

A lot of pictures in Restoration forum.

Thin documentation but it was delivered to Reno Nevada in late 1941 and used as a car for his ranches in Northern Nevada.  When the war started he donated it to the government and it was used during WW-II at Wendover military base.  Sold in 1950 government auction and sat in the desert for decades becoming a habitat for many forms of wildlife.  It came to me solid and running and I have been giving it a full overhaul. Painted to original colors and pretty authentic overhaul.
