Update and correction of my 7/27/2015 response.
The P-51 was owned by Gary Norton, and flown out of the private "Henley Aerodrome" in Athol Idaho. The date of the total hanger and contents fire was July 28th, 1981. Unfortunately,"One Man's Pleasure" was a total loss.

I'm located at Gainesville, Texas where this plane was originally located. Some members of our EAA Chapter gave me copies of this plane from back in the 80's when it was in the old WWII hanger. I am very interested in where the plane is now and if it is out of restoration now. I would love to be able to show a picture to our older EAA members of the current condition and location of this aircraft.

Case 104    Tuesday 21 Feb 2017 by Frank Sykes
It is gratifying to see so many great comments about George Enhorning and his beloved Mustang. My dad worked for Mr. Enhorning at Bruce Mfg. as a toolmaker and truly loved this jovial man. I think George appreciated my dad as well, maybe because he knew Dad was a Marine in WWII and served at Guatalcanal. Dad told me how George buzzed the plant one day, and I think it was just after he repowered it with the Rolls Royce engine. Dad wasn't much of an aircraft enthusiast, but he loved big engines and took me over to Oxford to see it. We were devastated when he was killed. I don't think the plant survived long after that.

I found this online....
.....I sold A68-119 to a Sydney businessman, Ray Whitbread. He flew her to Bankstown (Sydney) on 1 September 1970 where she was extensively overhauled and repainted. On 11 June 1973 he was
killed in her in a crash near Windsor NSW when, according to the Aviation Safety Network of the Flight Safety Foundation,2
the canopy detached and struck him in the head. My recollection is
different. I believe Ray was practising aerobatics for an air show at 8,000 feet doing vertical eight point upward rolls until the aircraft stalls. At that point the control surfaces must be centred or the
aircraft will fall inverted, which requires 17,000 feet to recover from. Ray had undone his seat belts and jettisoned the canopy to bale out but did not have time. The canopy was the largest piece to
survive the accident and is still in existence.
