Wow !!! Very sorry to hear that !
Bummer, such a rare car. I hope your house is ok.
We had a club member almost lose her 61 Conv with an eng compt fire. (Fuel line) She was driving it at the time. Lucky for her there was a CHP right there to put it out as she pulled off the freeway. Her late husband was the orig owner. She's very upset, plus it scared her. She must be 80. I heard $5000 damage.
Maybe I will discon the battery when it's sitting.
I'm also considering a solid fuel line.
Bery sorry to hear about your loss.
