We bought our first 3A a few years ago to use at our vacation home. My wife indulged me with this purchase but soon loved it as much as I do and agreed we should get another one for our home place. It is also a 1951. It was militarized by the prior owner but I plan to complete the restoration in a civilian color – probably Luzon red. We have had tons of fun working to continue restoring both and driving them around town.
