1957 Roadmaster Convertible-Balloon Fiesta

High Desert

Recommended Posts

The kids and I acquired premium passes to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and drove there yesterday at 5:00 in the morning to get a parking spot right up front. 

One of the Ballon Fiesta Board of Directors wants to find a way to incorporate the car into the festivities for next year. The attitude and color combo are just perfect to represent Albuquerque. 

I repaired the top mechanism and hydraulics, so I just need to install the new vinyl top. I’ll send the radio, clock, wiper motor, and speedometer out this winter for rebuild. I sent a set of used ball joints in to get remanufactured too (thanks Lance). The clunking of the current set does get annoying. 


It will be ready for next year!
