# 434 was maybe on the same boat. I gave the Heritage certificate to the new
owner but it said it too was brought in to SF in 1959, titled as a 1960
vehicle, and sold to unknown person. I bought in Kingsbury CA from owner 2
I had one of those nice horn buttons too until I laid a trouble light too
close to it for a while. Not the dumbest thing I did to the car either, sad
to say. Jim W. MN.

My #440 was built between 26-31 March 1959 and sent to San Francisco May of
1959. It was registered as a 1960. While I have the original owners name, I
have been unable to track him down. I am the 3rd owner; I bought it from
the estate of the 2nd owner. The car stayed on the West Coast its entire
life until I brought it to KY in 2006. The only 100-6 part I have on it is
the horn button. I have a lot of documents on it but gaps exist in its
history. For example I have some sense it is one of the first 10 BN7's
built and was subsequently sent with the other 9 to the US West Coast for
racing, but I can't prove it. I believe I have seen 2 or three other BN7
numbers lower than mine.
Anyone have any other history on these early BN7's?
