    I think it may be brown.

    I have certainly seen that color on a '55, but it was probably not stock.

  8. Hey Bleach, thanks for all the old "estate" type photos. It's cool to see what REAL life was like and see people in everyday scenes. Interesting story... About 20 years ago when my wife and I were living in Wisconsin (just North of Green Bay), we took a visiting friend to the Iola swap meet. My lovely wife was very patient with our wanderings, so on the way home when I spotted an antique store in an old school house, out in the middle of nowhere, I wheeled in so she could have her own version of swap meet "browsing". For some reason (which she couldn't explain then, and can't today), while my buddy and I were checking out all the cool junk, she zeroed in on a box of old photos. In a short while she started hollering and waving a photo at me. She had found an old (early 19-teens or 20's) photo of HER great-grandparents and three great aunts! It was one her immediate family didn't know existed, and she could only surmise that it ended up in an antique shop through an estate sale of some relative. What were the chances??? Thanks again for the photos you (and others) post!!

    It kind of reminds me of the tractor used in Green Acres.

  22. I posted a photo about two years ago in part 1 of this thread. Apparently it was of a member and a relative. It made their day and I was able to find a really good resolution photo for them to keep.
    I'm also on the lookout for photos here of myself and family that may have been taken by someone. So far nothing yet.
