Ex-Dan Ward Michelotti Daytona targa
I kind of lost track of this car and am curious as I haven't seen it at any events for a few years. When Dan Ward owned it in the '70s it was white with some red and some blue (faded in) and had a body that looked something like a '68 Corvette from the side with a targa removable roof. Later after he sold it , it was painted red. I think he took it to Daytona and fought with them whether it could be run as a production Daytona. I can't remember if it ran or not. Anyway my question is, was this car ever kicking around at a low price from one used car lot to another because nobody recognized its pedigree? Is it being recognized now as a Michelotti design? And is it a Michelotti, or one designed first in America and then built by Michelotti as were some of the NART cars?
I would think it would be at least a million dollar car by now (I am using money as a ref. only as a means of gauging recognition of it).
