History Purchased new in San Antonio, lived in hill country west of Austin on a small ranch. Parked up for years. I purchased in 2009 as second owner and did restore-lite (brakes, carb, fuel tank, exhaust, Pertronix, etc). Decided to leave the intense Texas sunburn patina as is. Daily driver around Austin. Named after the famous fossil Lucy that dates to 3.2 million years in age and that I study.

Some surprises in fuel tank and air cleaner during cleaning. The tank took forever to clean and coat.
