I think $22k buys a very nice authentic Clipper

Agree with PackardDon - the running board and hood side trim are also Senior not Junior.

love the Request! To me, the bright B-pillar and window frames really help disguise the too heavy pillar and window frames, while the Caribbean side trim flows nicely.

Given that the '56 Caribbean had a padded roof, the seams for the C pillar modification on the formal sedan could easily have been buried under Hypalon. This could have also covered a panel for a more private smaller rear backlight. If the budget permitted, this would be the car for the Request grille!

M63, solve that nasty B-pillar for good - show us the four door hardtop

I think you're onto something with disguising the b-pillar, which I think is the weakest line on this car. What about bright wrap of the door frames too so there is no painted vertical?

While Packard did not use the term, your body style is sometimes called an "opera coupe." Nothing to do with "opera windows" like in the 1970's, rather refers to the folding rear seats that were for short rides like going to the opera.

I applaud your "might as well do it right" approach.

in trying to be discreet, you inadvertently changed the meaning. Most of the tire quality/consistency issues I've heard of are out of China and SEAsia also. Michelin, Continental, Firestone, Pirelli, Bridgestone,etc are all overseas-based but don't have the same recent record. Hankook I have no experience with
