Also, it looks like the car was parted out by A.K. Barbee, VP and co owner of the Los Angeles Coca COla bottling company. He put this engine, and the engine from J-419 into a boat.

Does anyone have any pictures of the boat?

Also, engine J-419 out of the boat ended up being sold to Jot Horne. (the "e" is silent) Jot put it into a Bonneville record making ford roadster. What ever became of that engine?
