This fellow also has a 1952 Pontiac/Barnette for $3500 that is no longer listed. Pricey given the shape it's in.

Less than 20 miles away from me. Had already considered heading to view merely based on proximity - so if anyone wants better pics, drop a line.

Wonderful day. Went to view these coaches, ended up spending over 4 hours walking through 12 acres packed with old cars! Almost all are for sale.

Ironically, the *only* cars he's high on the prices are the 3 procars. He does think that given the 'rarity' they are worth a little more. The rest are all reasonable. Very genuine retired fellow willing to deal.

The '42 is definitely in better shape - although the interior has been converted to a limo.

Both are Superiors with virtually identical bodies. The '42 is missing the body tag.

Pontiac combination is also overpriced. Pretty complete. Sills have some rust. Other than the ax wound on the passenger rear fender the body wasn't bad.

Returning to this property today for other vehicles. If anyone wants specific/detailed pics of any of these 3 procars - let me know.

I would be interested if there were any 1963 or 1964 full size Chrysler vehicles in the yard. I am looking for a Leece Neville alternator for a 1963 - 1967 Chrysler.. and a few other items.
Thanks..

Those are Imperials........ one step down is the full size Chryslers, New Yorker, Newport, 300, etc. Thanks

Was close enough that I dropped in for a status check today. Both Superiors have sold and are gone. The Barnette Pontiac is still here, '****** because the price hasn't budged from $3500. Then again, he did get the same price out of each Superior - and one had metal in far worse shape.
