  3. Jack, Thanks for the reply. Any idea where this car is located now? Do you know who the Coach builder was? Where there any signs of it ever having the sightseer glasses in the roof? We know that Smoky Mountain Tours had more the one Chrysler- i would love to know the history on this car. Thanks again! Jerry
  4. Can you share any info or photos from that Portland sale? I'd love to see the details. br-549
  5. This is what we believe to be the same vehicle at the Biltmore House in the mid 60's.
  6. Greetings, I'm slow but sure! LOL I finally received permission to post these photos from the owner of the vehicle. We are fairly certain that this Chrysler was once a Smoky Mountain Tours (vehicle #20) . SMT operated out of Asheville NC. They had a very unique fleet including 3 axle Packard' s and vintage Flxible buses just to name a few. We have a Facebook page" Smoky Mountain Tours Company" feel free to join our page and see the items we have found to date! All leads, photos and picture appreciated! We have a vintage photo of a "like" Chrysler in front of the Biltmore House in Asheville NC Anyone have knowledge of this cars past? Any guess on the Coachbuilder? Thanks, br-549
  7. Let me contact the owner and check on the status of the car and ask permission to post photos. JWA

    Early Packard A/C?

    Greetings, So i assume that an early Packard A/C unit would need R-12 Freon? Does anyone have info/ experience on adding a clutch to an original A/C compressor? Who has a working unit? Thanks, Jerry

  13. Thanks for your reply. This is not my car ( yet) so i am rather reluctant to post any photos. This is more of what i would consider to be an "airporter" or sightee'r limo w/o a divider. Your car is awesome. I saw photos on another thread. I may post photos later if the current owner tells me it's ok. ja
