ROCKFORD (WREX) — A special car in automotive history has made its way a Rockford car museum.
Historic Auto Attractions is sporting the 1957 Plymouth Belvidere.
The car has a unique background, back in 1957, the car was buried in the ground in Tulsa, Oklahoma to celebrate it’s statehood. People guessed what the population would be in 50 years and then the closest guess would win the car.
Unfortunately, that person passed away, but the Tulsa Historic Society decided to donate the car to the historic auto attractions.
“They buried things in the trunk like a case of Schlitts beer,just different things,” says owner Wayne Lansing.
“They didn’t know what gas going to be like to make this car run again because they thought it was going to be green, so they put a gallon of gas in the trunk.”
The museum is open for select hours because of Covid-19
