This car isn’t just “Infamous” because I own it, it’s infamous because of reputation and history over the years. This is probably what is so appealing about this car, because not only was the ownership interesting but so was the cars constant modifications and changes throughout its existence.
It all started in 1987 when the car was purchased new by Mr. Derek Hanson himself, later to be sold through Donway Ford in Toronto Ontario as a DECH Dealer option car. A true DECH car doesn’t get much more authentic than that when it’s purchased and owned by the man behind the name!
The first registered owner of this car shows Derek Hanson on December 22, 1987. This is where DECH outfitted the car with the following modification:
The prior owner commissioned a lower quality re-paint in Oxford White (9L) and filler was used in the rocker panels. Substandard paint and bodywork is present in both rear quarter panels and rockers. Rust is present in the rockers, surface corrosion underneath, and previous repair is evident in the lower right front fender covered by the front air dam.
