    Hi Drake,
    Bobby Schlegel here, towards the end of the T-Bolt era didn’t Carmel ford have one and some time after it went to Sweden
    than was bought baught back and restored by Randy Delisio.
    I found out in Carlisle in ’07 that is is now owned by Don & Bonita Whitlow in VA. It is not the Dobbs Ferry car do not know original dealership info on it. Missed ya last time in town.
    Take care, Bobby S.

    Drake
    I saw Nazi Krate at Beaver Springs this past summer for the York Reunion event/race. I kept in contact with Howie who did the original & the reborn Krate to original lettering and paint design.
    Car looked awesome there, weather did not work in favor for the event rained out sunday for the York cars to make a show.
    Thanks for the info,
    Bobby
