    ^^^ WOW! Wonder where that one got to?
    Wonder if it was a slantback or trunk?

    Also, I wonder if the 36 conv sedan on craiglist has a body id tag?

    I'll have to call him to see.

    Thanks for sharing the 36 conv sedan info... that makes the 204th one known to exist.
    I don't have any records of any with a 40 deluxe front end.. maybe it is still out there waiting for us to find it!

  21. Tom, said he was going to bring it back to a 40's look like I had it in the first photo, that'd be really cool. Oh Ya, no pinstriping except something cool inside the glovebox door, you know it is a 40's look. HAHAHahah!!!! JW
