Anyone know where this is these days? It was owned by Herb Lozier and then Vince Furnas in the 1950s.

I asked around a couple of years ago and no one seemed to know. It's one of my favorite L-29s.

You're not going to want to hear this, but I have heard on good authority that...

"the car was purchased in Auburn in the early 1980s for King Hassan of Morocco for his birthday ... anything acquired under these circumstances becomes a ?National Treasure? of the country and is therefore never allowed to leave. In 1987 the Pebble Beach Concours tried to get all the custom-bodied L-29s onto the lawn ... but the Moroccan government refused to let this car leave the country. King Hassan has passed away and the throne went to his son and supposedly a more open form of government has evolved. a couple of strong attempts were made to purchase the car in the late 1990s and then again a few years later. There was no potential movement in terms of the government letting it go (as it is seen as part of the royal car collection that is completely private and not open to non-royals. No one has seen the car since it left this country in the early 1980s."

Sad but true
(I'd post a few more photos, but it's too much work to go through whatever process is necessary to do that here)

Thanks West! After the Hayes coupe this is my favorite L29. I'm not surprised it's locked away some where as it hasn't been seen in years.

I'll send you the photos, but that really is about the same as first loading onto another site. Many forums allow one to "search" their own computer to find the photo to upload. Am I missing that here?
