With the top in motion? HRP
There are videos of it on this thread:
Thank's but I'm not on instagram. HRP
Did you try the link? You don't need to be on Instagram to view it.
Danny, just go to the instagram link in that thread and click on it. The link takes you to the video. You don't have to join up or anything.
Went back and tried again,still nothing. HRP
Yes you do, I´m not on Instagram as well and the video doesn´t work for me....
Stood right next to it and watched go up and down several times, it ran very smoothly. I was told the owner did all the wiring, he was a very nice guy to talk with, and was having a great time with a finished project that took six years to build. Bob
Heres a video but it doesn't show retracting roof but the color looks pretty good.
One better make sure to get the umbrella out before closing door...
Worked fine for me
Guys, I don't know what to tell you. I'm not on instagram either, but I just went back to that link and clicked on the video and it played for me.
Awesome , apart from the blonde fluffy wandering in front of the camera.
So that's what it take to win AMBR now.
In one of the build pictures I saw they have a similar feature to the umbrella under the passenger seat to store a flask.
A flask for water right... They stored golf clubs on those back in the day cruisers too...Lots of room to fit all kinds of gadgets...The good ole days of fun and frivolity...
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Breathtaking!!!!! The retractable hardtop is amazing too. I have not ever seen a car I like better.
More video here but no retracting roof stuff again wow...
Get the ole cigar and Gastby gear on, hop in and part the big ole highway there Frank...
Thanks Buick59. Very fun video!! TEB

Awesome styling and build quality.
A few things that stood out watching the video.
First, I think it would have looked even better with chrome bumpers. I wonder if that was a consideration in the design process.
Second, When the owner and builders are standing with it, the car is physically a lot smaller than I had imagined. Styled like a big car....but not that big.
Third, how is the floor plan and display spots determined for AMBR? Lottery? Show staff? Appears they had prime real estate, and maybe pre-determined for a 1,2,3 spot?
Fourth, I would have been nervous as hell getting that car on and off the display!
Don't know about the others but here is one of Eric's design sketches that compares the car to the original Packard proportions and it's clearly quite a bit smaller.
Holy Cow! How are they going to move that trophy? Youza!

There was video of the roof moving in the Street Rodder live stream. Supposed to be archived on their web site.
