I have wanted one of these since I was 14, my stepfather and I looked at one
that belonged to Actor William Holden. The car was in Arcadia California. His Agent was trying to get 10,500 for it. He turned down the 10k offer my stepdad made and we walked. I was devastated. Got my car 57 years later. Just spent a year going through it, although most of the mechanical was done. All brightwork redone. Fresh paint and upholstery. Getting ready to drive it around
California. I live in Rancho Mirage. Wish I had found the Forum sooner as it has some helpful stuff.
Having some trouble with lifter noise after replacing them following the rebuild. Bent a couple of pushrods when the old lifters collapsed.
Sounds fine until it warms up some then can hear clicking when a load is on..

Bill, I have updated the history with the information that we now have. Would you check it out? As you will see we have no ownership records before you. Hopefully, you can fill in some details about 2263's past.
