You can,t show enough of this car,can you? There’s just too much to show,isn’t there? This car will probably last longer than you now I’m sure.

Kindly put my name down to purchase one of the first books certain to be publish regarding one of the finest custom/coach built bodies, the Chrysler’s Chrysler.

Two questions:
1) What happen to the side view mirrors?
2) Why move front license plate from passenger side to driver’s side?
Thanks, I still love the car.

I can’t wait to see it again; it’s only been thirty years!

As I mentioned in a different venue, if ever a car cried out for 1937 Lincoln built-into-the-fender headlights, this Chrysler would be the one!  The dowdy, high-mounted, bullet headlights are the one feature that takes away from the whole streamlined package.  Someone with PhotoShop experience, using the image of the ‘37 custom-bodied Lincoln portrayed recently in Hemmings, could easily modify a photograph to show us what it would have looked like.  PhotoShopper, if you’re out there, please do it and ask Hemmings to run the result on line!

Well, well, what do you know!  I pre-empted myself.  This is what happens when you’re in your eighty-fifth year.
