Window tint was added for car club safety reasons??? Can you explain? Is it removable?

It is a comparatively rare car, but on the other hand, it's a sedan, and it's hard to find parts for due to rarity. Kind of a mixed bag, but a good-looking and interesting car. 

Good luck with the sale.

The Product used on the windows is Called Peel & Cling made by Gila. It is removeable. The club we belonged to required safety glass or the Peel & Cling Removeable plastic Tint. Apparently a window had been broken in another club and a child was cut. The car is complete. No looking for parts. That was the nice thing about being the owners of this car.

I like the headlight color and the subtlety of the instrument panel and the way it repeats the rad shell design. This Peerless has been in Ontario since new. The story is a repeat Buick customer couldn't get the model he wanted from the local dealer, so went upscale to a Peerless. Louis Chevrolet also bought a new Peerless Six-80 Sedan that year.
