View Full Version : New member in VA, Mark II from Iowa

Hello all,

Just recently purchased C56H3224 from my sister in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and had it transported to the Classic Car Center in Fredericksburg VA. I live in Arlington VA.

The car was purchased by my now deceased brother-in-law from the prior owner in Dodgeville Wisconsin, probably in 1986. The folks at the Car Center have brought the car up to driving condition and it looks great, white with original white and red upholstery. The odometer shows about 59K.

Would love to hear prior history of the car.

Welcome to the Forum. I have revised the 3224 file in the Registry to include the history that you provided. The link is:


The ownership portion is as follows:

1979-84 (or later) Melvin H. Rickard Dodgeville WI (L)
1986 (or earlier)-2012? Unnamed Owner Cedar Rapids, IA
2012 Don Hanson Arlington, VA (1)(M)
Current Owner-Arlington, Virginia

Possibly you could provide fill in a few more details? Also a picture or two of the car would be great.

I'm sure that you'll find that the members will be happy to help you in your new adventure.

Yes, pictures. We're a visually oriented bunch, even though the cars all look the same. Well, most of them.

I'm in DC.
And I was just contacted by another '57 MKII owner in Gaithersburg, MD
Let me know if I can be of any assistance.
