I was thinking this was the sole surviving Broadmoor Skyview; does anyone know if more still exist?

Will take that bet as all six '59 Broadmoor Skyviews survive. Neither of the two '59 Superior Caravelles are known surviving however.

I know GM built the chassis, but who built the rear quarter panels, Superior? It's hard to know who designed/built what on a professional car. No one would probably ever try to turn a Broadmoor Skyview into a ghostbusters car! All that glass on the roof would make it difficult.

The 59 set were built by superior. The under cut H&E on the bid then tried to get them to build the CAS for them. The said no thanks. H&E built the other sets
