I've owned my 53 Mainline for a few years now and, in the process of working on it, have reached the point where I'd like to know the history of the car. I have the original Car Papers and know the car was originally purchased 5/15/53 at Coffeyville Motor Company in Coffeyville, KS. The original owner, a fellow named W.H. Bays, bought the car from a salesman named Hayden. How it got to TX is unknown at this time. I have sent a formal letter of inquiry to the TX DMV to get the title history of the car and hope to be able to follow the trail from Mr. Bays to me through the past 66 years. Coffeyville Motor Co. no longer exists. And I have had no luck finding Mr Bays, as I only have his initials. So, as I conduct this search I'm asking my fellow HAMBers for help. If you have any info about the dealership, or (slim chance) know anyone connected to the Bays family, please let me know. I'll keep you all informed as the hunt progresses! By the way, in this age of 100,000 warranties, check the coverage on the warranty papers: 90 days/4000 miles!
