The Milner Coupe - 1981 (Part 3)

The first two photos illustrate the extent of neglect that the Milner Coupe endured during it's years as a sideshow attraction at Universal Studios. When Steve Fitch brought it home to Kansas in 1981, he disassembled the entire car as partially shown in the third picture. Mindful not to change too much, Steve rebuilt the engine and used every original part he could during the reassembly. That Rick Figari was able to use the Coupe as a driver the first few years he had it, is testimony to the job well done in Wichita.

Thanks again to Rick Blevins for sharing these rare and insightful glimpses into the history of our favorite deuce.
