Default Is Arnolt 3029 still around?

I have been contacted by Jonathan Wessels in the US. He asked me to post this on his behalf;


Hi, my name's Jonathan wessels. I'm trying to find chassis number 3029. It was in our garage when I was first born. My father's best man ,Harry bud Mason was killed in it on mt eqinoux in Vermont in 1956. I restore sports cars and would love to know what it looks like today.

I purchased 3029 in 2018 as a scruffy driver. It has since changed hands twice. It is currently in a collection in the USA. I believe its been restored and is in excellent condition.

You’ll find photos of it on my website.

In addition to Danial, Harold Allen and Jim McQuay owned 3029. I will send the post to the current owner to see if he will contact Jonathan.

Former Arnolt owner Bill Watkins maintains a registry of all ABs. It shows 3029 is owned in Texas

I emailed Gene Ponder, in Midland Texas, the current owner of 3029, and he was happy to share that information with the forum members.

Kevin, Gene Ponder has just sent me photos of 3029, restored. Can you either send me your email or Jonathan's so I can forward them. John, I will send you copies also.

Thanks Peter and to everyone else who responded (including Bill Watkins by PM). I will send you Jonathan Wessels' email address for you to pass on to Gene. It would be nice to have some of the photos in this thread is Gene is okay with that. I'm happy to post them if you send them to me.


Regards,
Kevin
