Purchased new by Howard Hughes in 1957 this rare car was used for a few years and then put into storage. In 1976 Brian Jackson purchased the car in a 3 car package through Mr. Richard Gandfor, an administrator for the Summa Corporation, the holding company for all of Howard Hughes Enterprises. Documentation includes copies of cancelled check from Hughes Productions, letter of authenticity from Brian Jackson and letter from the Summa Corp.We hope the ownner will share more photos with us soon!
