With a 148" wheelbase it has to be at least a 160. The upper "stainless" strip on the beltline is probably paint. I've never seen anything like it and assume it's a customization. The tail lights are an open question. The 1935-41 parts manual is no help nor is the 1942-1947 Clipper specific manual. Maybe he sold the senior lights to make a house payment. All the pertinent 1942 rear-end photos I can find (very few) show senior style rear tail lights (but they are all 180's).

I wonder what the wheelbase is. It looks really small, kinda like a Nash Metropolitan. I like it.

I looked at the spring arrangement on my 23rd series and it's just the same as that shown by HH56 in his photos.

I had that sticker on my Triumph Spitfire. I bought it new and the first day a tail light fell off. During the years I owned it nuts and bolts constantly rained down from under the dash. The final insult was when the left front wire wheel came off the car as I was getting on the on-ramp of the Ventura Freeway. The wheel sailed across to the off-ramp and slammed into the side of a California Highway Patrol car stopped at a traffic light. I promptly sold the miserable thing.

BigKev did a 12volt conversion on his '54 using a GM coded harness. Information on what he did starts around here. The information on his restoration project is extensive and useful.

Also, some additional info on 12v conversions here, and here.

I think Earle C. Anthony's showroom was about 3 blocks from the parade route.

PS - Snowdrift was a shortening.

Here's Lindbergh riding in a rose-bedecked Packard (I am basing my assumption that it's a Packard on the hubcaps ).

Historical Notes

The parade through Downtown Los Angeles took place on September 21, 1927, four months to the day after Col. Lindbergh flew solo non-stop from Roosevelt Field to Paris aboard the "Spirit of St. Louis".^

(1927)#** - Photograph of parked automobiles at the parade for Charles Lindbergh. Approximately nine rows of cars are parked door-to-door in an alleyway flanking the parade route. Two billboards are attached to the wall at left and advertise for "Sun-Maid Raisins" and "Snowdrift for Cake". A second parking lot can be seen across the street.

Above from waterandpower.org

I'd bet that Earle C. Anthony was involved. I thought I recognized my hometown... I was right.

I'm guessing your memory may be little fuzzy. How about your neighbor had a 1953 Kaiser Dragon? The dashboard, upholstery and roof vinyl were certainly unique. Yes, it looked like straw or wicker.
