Default cot bar hardware

Bill L has come up with an alternative for me but unfortunately cannot locate an original set. If anyone had a set of the vertical bar (and ideally the support piece on the inside of the interior wall), I would love to try and obtain them.
Work on the car is progressing very well. The parts and time donated by local auto businesses has been ++++, wonderful people. I will post pics when completed.

I have a set here. most of these that I have taken apart were threaded into the wheel well cover. with no support on the back side or if anything a extra layer tacked to where they go. I never figured out how superior got away with it. but they did. luckily for you I stumbled on a can with a set in them looking for something else.but as I remember this set is a spacer to move the bar out to avoid trim. I have made a backer out of a piece of steel just drill and thread it. the sliders are not in this can but out in the shed.
. where do I sent them?

The bad...initial restoration was started about ten years ago, and you guessed it, much of the stainless taken off at the start of the restoration has fallen by the way side. So far, mouldings around front windshield, sill plates, some of the interior pieces around the rear windows, some parts for the cot bar attached to left rear . Rear headliner also sad. Still need to make up a full list.
If anyone comes across a donor car, a line on it would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
Hi, Try Aldon auto salvage in Lamont Alta.- He bought all of the old Smith's Pontiacs and Olds.years ago. It's a thought-Bruce Osborne

Default Progress!!

Picked up the 73 Superior this morning from the City of Calgary body shop. When taken on by volunteers the road is slow, but well worth it in my eyes and am extremely appreciative to all who have contributed (including PCS members)!!.

Interior work starts later this week.

Hope to have it ready for National Paramedics week in May.

Years ago, I traded 2 Bonnevilles in over a period of time to Crestline through Ambucraft. I heard that the sold all these coaches to a fellow in or near Vallyfield. Just a another clue in the restoration puzzle.
