Swallow Doretti - Cars & Owners

The First Production Swallow Doretti

Chassis 1001: Ardell Brown
Location: Utah, USA

Ardell has owned the first production Doretti since 1979 when he bought the car from Ken Halderman of Salt Lake City, Utah.
Ken had inherited the car from his brother who purchased it new in Los Angeles. According to some pictures in Ardell's possession the car was originally painted White. Subsequently Ardell had the Doretti re-painted Dark Green and then finally the current bright red.

Thanks to Ardell Brown for the information and pictures.   Return to Cars and Owners
