"Barn Find" P-51 Mustang from Torrance, CA Up For Auction
Interesting story on this one. It appears to have been bought by a man in Playa Del Rey (up by LAX) in 1973, and stored at Torrance (Zamperini Field, TOA) in a hangar, and work started on it. The man passed away in 2004 without really getting much done on it, and it went to his wife, who passed away in 2012.
The attorneys for the estate are now putting it on the auction block, and it's come to light as a 1970's era, unrestored warbird.
