Past owner of TC 9583 xpag 10357 now 10754

Good day and happy new year
I was wondering perhaps if some fellow Aussies may know some of my car's past history.
I purchased about 8 yrs ago off a bloke in Maroubra and on the front badge bar was a badge belonging to a Radiography member.
My car has some unique features ,one being the diff has been cut away from a later model and TC ends welded onto.
Also it has a Datsun steering box and possibly had air filters sticking through the bonnet but seems to have been closed off again
The instruments have been refurbished back in 1998 and at some time a restoration using green Chrysler vinyl.
Perhaps someone remembers this car

Gday Ian,
Your car was listed with the ATA back in the 1970's I think as being owned by J. Crosswhite of Beacon Hill.
Not sure if this the person who you purchased from?
Cheers
Matthew.

I can only seem to find one family in Australia by that name, Janice and Perry who were active in sport. You can read about them in Wikipedia. Perry came to Australia in 1969 from Washington DC. If he brought the TC over with him then that would explain why I cant find any earlier Australian history, and why your chassis number is not part of a 'run' of Australian chassis numbers.
