  1. Look for a paint-less dent removal place, they might be able to help you.
  2. I have always loved and preferred the front end styling of the 40/41 Continental's versus the later 42-48 Continental's. In my opinion they have a cleaner, simpler, and less heavy looking design. It terms of collectability are the 40-41 more desirable? Do they command higher prices and are considered better investments? What are your thoughts?
  3. Were the Studebakers of the 40's, 50's and 60's reliable? I have always heard the extreme opposites about them. I have heard from some people that they were totally unreliable, while others have said that they were bulletproof especially the trucks.
  4. I have heard several times that the 40's and early 50's Plymouths drove superior to the comparable Fords and Chevys of the time and were very reliable.
  5. Looks like a lot of car for the money. Love the color combo and it's the last year for the straight 8. Good Luck with the sale.
  6. Out of all the car that you had for sale that was my favorite.
  7. Do any of you use Marvel Mystery Oil in your cars. Most people nowadays do not even know what it is but a few old timers that I have meet throughout the years have sworn by it.
  8. I have been told they are great handling cars but are unreliable. This comes from a mechanic that has worked on plenty of them. He has also told me that the earlier the worse. Hopefully the 2015's have all of the issues resolved.
  9. That is very true and the first thing that I said to myself when I saw this thread. Good luck with the sale.
  10. Contact Dennis Bickford in New Mexico, he specializes in wood bodied cars and fabricates many wooden parts for them.
  11. It is amazing what a little cleaning/detailing can do. It looks a whole lot better now than in the first pics. Joe, what type of varnish did you use on the green town & country?
  12. I don't blame you for starting the auction at $20,000 and the reserve higher, there is only one original, the show was/is very popular, and the truck always appeared at the beginning of the show. I don't think a many private individuals will pay top dollar for it but a business or attraction might. It will definitely bring in some public and generate publicity. Good luck with the sale, If I had the money I might actually be bidding.
  13. I have always wondered where that truck ended up. The first question I asked myself when I saw the ad was how much would that truck cost if it wasn't the one from the show. The auction is starting at $20,000 and that does not meet the reserve. Will there be any serious buyers willing to pay such a premium for the provenance? I guess we will have to wait and see.
