Find a 550?

In the late fifties, early sixties, there was a 550 that was being street driven in the K.C. Area. I first saw it at an autocross at the old Ranch Mart shopping center, I think. As I recall it was brown with a dark red stripe. Down the centerline of the hood were plaques commemorating races that I assume it had competed in.

Later this same car turned up in my H.S. (Shawnee-Mission North, Shawnee-Mission, KS) It was driven by a Junior at the time (that would be 1961), a guy named Gary Lindsly. He later sold it and turned up with an MG-A 1600, and later still a Chrysler 300 convertible of some letter.

It would be interesting to know if that carís history, if survives and where.
