    Found this on the net... the original owner who is the Head of State or Perak, Malaysia (you can see the Flag on RH Fender. Too bad this is the only pic I could find... but still delighted nontheless!

    Typical mid 60's with the shades and all... this was taken at a rubber plantation where he was to officiate the opening ceremony.

    By the way, the original article can be found here: http://www.ipohworld.org/blog/?p=4237

    Sorry it was not a rubber plantation but a TIN mining opening ceremony :)

    Hope you liked the picture of the Dart.

    Good question, I have no idea how the foglights were mounted, but no holes on the bumper when I got it.

    Thanks for posting. It always makes me happy to see this car. You went through a lot to preserve it.
