  1. In the mid '60's, Jim Lynch of Akron, Ohio had a collection of cars that he called Motordom's Ghosts. He only collected pre-1910 cars and had about 75. The only exception was the only Ford, which was a 1912 Torpedo. Does anyone remember Jim or the collection?

  6. Skyliners were offered by Ford in 1954, 1955 and 1956. The production in 1955 was less than in 1954, and production in 1956 was less than in 1955. The glass top cars in 1955 and 1956 was based on the Crown Victoria. The Mercury version was called the Sun Valley, and was also available in 1954, 1955 and 1956. Production of 1955 Sun Valleys were about a couple of dozen and 1956 much less than that.
  7. 46 to 48 Mercury was 15"; 46 to 48 Ford was 16".
  8. The purpose of the spring is to allow the frame to flex without forcing the tank to flex. Only one bolt gets a spring, the bolt that is on the side by itself.
