Some of Steele's products are contract manufactured, so Newbie you may know the manufacturers. I know Cadillac Rubber did some extrusions for them.

I believe you are correct about the 21st series 6 and 282 both using the same 120" wb. The "traditional bodied" 41-2 had different wheelbases for 6 and 282.

I think your cormorant is a 22nd-24th series bird. You might want to stay on the lookout for a 21st ornament, or check the 20th series parts car which uses the same one as 21st.

Steele used to make replacement rubber but it's been out of production for a while. Fortunately the outer pattern is the same as the underlying steel, so spray-up in polyurethane is an option. Your upper stainless trim is standard Junior trim. Take good care of the side pieces - those are not common in your unusual length

I've see a 22nd series car with one but I do not know if it was sanctioned or aftermarket

don't go entirely by the casting on the head. The 288 and 327 heads interchange - the stroke causes the displacement difference. Check the engine number.

I think I see the glass wing broken short on the hood ornament. Again, not hard to fix (provided the late Mr TerHorst left stock) but consider it in the budget.

Seat upholstery looks like correct pattern, but wrong material. Running boards look like no rubber coating and no stainless on top or sides. The good news is that the Junior top trim is much easier to find. Not a bad looking car (the side mount covers will help a lot). If you are into judging, it will score higher at a general meet than a PAC meet because of authenticity items already noted.

perhaps obvious, but it's missing the metal sidemount covers and I think the running board trim. What's the interior like? Should be wool - most likely striped broadcloth but check the references on this site to see about whether the plain wool or Bedford cord were options. If it needs interior Tenite plastic check LaVine for prices. the paint scheme does not appear correct - the two-tone gray was a silver upper and a gunmetal lower. I am reluctant to comment on price, but seems high unless the interior is correct and nice.
