Chassis No.1001 Chassis No.1001  Ardell Brown
Location: Utah, USA

This first production Doretti is now located in Utah and still looks to be in excellent condition. Ardell Brown the present owner of the car says that, "I purchased the car in 1979 from a man named Ken Halderman in Salt Lake City, Utah. He had inherited the car from his brother who had actually purchased it new in Los Angeles. According to some pictures that I have, the original color was white. When I got the car it was a dark green. I have since painted the car red, as it appears in the pictures."   ... Ardell Brown
More information about the car can be found in the The First Production Swallow Doretti article.
