Perhaps the Prestone failed to do it's duty for the subsequent owner.

I saw the episode too. It wasn't a coupe, it was a convertible... maroon if memory serves...

I can't speak to the volume of mirrors you expect to sell. Just a general observation- "BEFORE I send the check...I have sealed a deal." Unless you plan on never setting foot inside that bar again; I think you know what you need to do.
You aren't buying the whole business, so audited financial statements may be overkill, but I would have at minimum asked for some proof of cashflow over the last three years to assess the projection going forward. At that point take into consideration holding costs and decline in value due to aged inventory. I do applaud you for keeping something alive, I would be lying if I said I didn't open my wallet with my heart on occasion.

I've long admired the boats Gar Wood built for public consumption. A double cockpit runabout from the late 30's to early 40's is on my bucket list. If the Chrysler inboard is missing I thought it would be neat to find a Packard marine S8. I don't think a triple will ever be in the cards for me but they were incredible boats.

Well, if anyone ever does reproduce this I would buy. If not, I'll find the closest match material and have made myself. I must say it does have a rubber appearance. Perhaps this is yet another job for Phil Swift and Flex Seal..

Cool find. Thanks for sharing, I know I'll create a reminder to revisit this when the time comes to hire an upholstery shop. Can you tell what the material is: Naugahyde?

Thanks,

Mike

What is the convertible lurking in the shadows of the LeBaron? My instincts say 1941 "C" brand (for fear of crashing this site).

Thanks Mal! Always enjoy reading your posts. I was thinking of you and your hood mishap when speaking with the seller of this car. He was intrigued at how you can open the hood from both sides so easily. I inquired if it was locked down and he had no idea what I was talking about. At that point I alerted him to the inevitable outcome that would happen if he continued lifting the hood. As a side note I admittedly did it myself on the '49 sedan I use to have, though my experience with it falling ended better.

While sorting through and re-boxing parts last night I came across these. I got a chuckle on some commentary and non-PC verbiage. I thought perhaps some members of the Motor City Region may remember this event.

Mike

So I just tried rotating these by rotating the source images to no avail... sorry in advance, someone I'm sure...

Hello Everyone,

Well I found this old girl on Craigslist a few weeks back tucked away in Ontario just outside of Detroit. Bought it from a wonderful family whose father bought it out of Chicago in the mid-late 60’s. Per the son the last time the car was ran was around 1977. It was put away in their family barn up until recently. Considering its origin of sale, it has survived quite well, though it does require floor pan replacement and probably rocker panels. The family had purchased over the years many parts at swap meets and the car has duplicates of many items, though one piece of convertible only trim has gone missing. I had always wanted one of these since I was 12 and first saw Back to the Future. I was thrilled to find this one thinking I may not find one in unrestored condition. It will probably be winter before I can start to dig in on the car and will probably need some technical assistance from some of you who have restored one of these. The interior patterns are non-existent except for door panels and some trace amounts of vinyl.
More to come….

Hello Ozstatman,

I will do that before I sell. I have moved out of state from where the car is. My father is handling the sale for me on that end and has the title/vin# etc..

It was sold new at Goldner Packard in Germantown PA.

Mike
