Just thought Id share a bit O good news! My two front mats from Jenkins Interiors arrived 2day & did not disappoint! Now I can figure out how to rip that fugly glued down cheap carpet off the front floor! Took photos, but they dont show how nice these are. Very heavily made. Struggled to lift box with the two rolled up, very secure packing as well! Also taking delivery on a promising 1940 Super 4dr parts car Sat @ around noon. Be nice if it actually turns over as told by owner b4 him!image0000001.thumb.jpg.a1c2a8db24eaed21eeae53f7c107ac12.jpgimage0000001001002.thumb.jpg.17711a5eda6e45760a43ca4185b31bb5.jpg20200626_103154.thumb.jpg.4a12f55b99d4fdfbb0088f72e04635cd.jpg

It has a 1956 MN plate on the front. Also included the dealer model display book with the letter pictured. Seems incredable that it may have been sidelined that long ago? It is amazingly complete, but rusty as befits an old driver car from Many-snow-dah! The original wheels are toast, as it seems they were off the car laying in wet dirt(big pock mark like recessions all around consistantly on all four wheels). Dang! The only trim I see missing is the crest on the trunk ornament. Jack and stand in trunk, original air clnr and batt hold down bracket. A "Mouse House" its been! Stinks of course but seems totally vacated by them at this point. The ride from central Iowa to Mn. probably sinched that. Ill try and post some more photos in case further interest is there.
