"I talked with the last owner finally.
I lucked out, his daughter got on the phone with him. She helped
verify the story.
The car was found in El Segundo Calif.
in 1970 in a body shop; at that time it was painted white. The car was
owned by two brothers who had a VW shop in Inglewood Calif. They
told Baron the car was very fast and that they had raced it around southern
Calif. We did find a decal on the inside of the driver’s door area. On
the decal was written "Golden Gate region Porsche Club of America 7th annual
Porsche Parade Monterey “62”.
The Baron stripped the white paint and
removed all the Bondo. He then polished the aluminum and drove the
car for several years. The car was too fast for the street with a S90 engine.
So he put it away in storage for thirty years."

"There was a guy named Glen (?) Hostettler
who raced a VW/Porsche spl that looked very similar to this one. It was
painted red I think. Don't know if it's the same car."
