Congratulations Jon! It looks real nice! Is the color dark green, or is my monitor fooling me?

Now for a set of 890s with 3 inch white wall . They really made. A difference in the 58 we did. You will be surprised how much brass is in that car. Some vary heavy pieces of trim there.

Have you been able to contact Nick Yassan yet? Nick is a late '50s/early '60s Eureka parts hoarder! He has a lot of stuff that you desperately need, including the correct landau bars. I know because I sold them to him.

I don't think that there is anything left of the '58 Eureka 3-way that I parted out other than the front clip, but that doesn't help you any. I can't remember what I did with the coach lamps, but I parted that car around 1984.

Not the same coach that was used in alhat movie. That 57 is owned by a PCS member in Washington or Oregon, can't remember which state.

I always loved that scene and the music that went along with it.

Chris is correct, the La Bamba '57 Eureka (and a '58 Superior) were studio-owned during the 1980s and used in several productions at the time. A local hearse club friend purchased both cars in the early '90s and I had the opportunity to drive the '57 a few times.
Here's a few screen shots...

Pic 1 - Moving Violations (1985)
Pics 2 & 3 - La Bamba (1987)
Pics 4 & 5 - Quantum Leap (1989)

Pics 6 & 7 - I took these photos of the car around 1999 or 2000. It was a Landau Combination. It sold on ebay about ten years ago.

:cool:
