My name is John Hamilton. New to group but old to Mk IIs. I live in Cedar Rapids, IA. I have owned mine since 1973. (C5691273) The car came from mid-central CA. It still wears it's ORIGINAL shiny black paint. Since the car went to a nice climate, it was ordered with 2 tone gray broadcloth interior without AC. I had to replace the cloth many years ago as it was all dried out from sitting in a shed in CA for about 12 years. The car came with a set of brand new Firestone 500 tires. They were so dried out, that it rode like a lumber wagon and followed every crack in the street.

I am looking forward to becoming part of this Forum.

I also have a 56 Premier Convertible.

Welcome to the Forum, John.

I have updated the history for 1273 with the information that you provided. Here is the link:


Can you provide any specific ownership history and dates before 1973?
