The rebirth of Ruby Luv. Our 1930 Essex touring sedan, right hand drive, from England. She was last drove in a road race in Ireland, July 1966, by owner, Mr. Anthony Garrihy. All the monies from the race went to benefit the blind. She was brought back to the U.S.A. by the Port of Mississippi, on November 12, 1975.
She was first titled to Mrs. Louise Spradling on 11-12-75. Second title was to Mrs. J. Lawless and then to a Mr. Ken Baker. We, Frank and Ruby Arnold became her fourth owners on 9-4-96. The four owners were all from Florida.
Ruby Luv was purchased by my wife, Ruby on 9-4-96 and given to me for my 65th birthday, 12-18-96. We pushed the old girl into the driveway and I started taking her apart, piece by piece, till everything was off.
On 9-6-96 we took two engines, a 1928 and a 1931 to Don Whitacre in Wildwood. Don picked the better of the two engines, the 1931. He started research to find parts and information to rebuild the engine.
In October 1996, our best man, Orville Yount and his wife, Barb came down from Indianapolis. Orville and I spent some time working on the old girl’s body and putting her into primer.
After about three months of body work, we found her a paint shop. The body was painted first and returned home on 9-13-97, the parts followed. She was looking good.
During this time we had been looking and shopping. After finally finding most everything, we started putting her back together. Also, during this time, I found a member of H.E.T., in Ireland and wrote him a letter. He did some research and found Anthony. I wrote him and sent some pictures. He was very happy to hear and see his “baby”.
Tony is confined to a wheelchair, so a lady named, B. Monks did his writing for him. Mrs. Monks wrote me, to say that Tony would like for me to call. The next day, October 7, 1998, I called him. Tony said there was one owner before him. He was a Colonel in the Army, in England.
