    Welcome Julie.
    I googled this. You are confusing our "Grumpy" with Bill Grumpy Jenkins.
    Lots of youtube videos came up.
    But please stay and have a look around. Lots of good information here.
    To answer your question: He eventually hooked up with Dave Strickler in the early 1960s to campaign the series of “Old Reliable” Chevrolets – including the very first 1963 Impala Z11 lightweight car – before switching to Dodge in 1964.
    I would think he got the car directly from Chevrolet.
