There was a very,very early 100 for sale in the Purchase area a few years
back, Maybe that is the car.

I'd be surprised if it was one of these. In the first place I thought,
I may be wrong, that all of those bodies were accounted for or "pranged"
badly in period - see the picture further down the page of Cuomo landing #25,
which almost certainly was ally-bodied.
But then those cars are 56/7 and earlier and not 59...
When cars were aluminium bodied in the mid-50a by DMHC they were custom jobs
provided by Jensens and were extremely expensive and limited in number. My
is that any all-aluminium bodies that you come across from that period would
US-manufactured and probably custom.
