Default New Yard Discovery

I have traveled Missouri on business for 19 years, but hadn't noticed this yard until today. The yard opened in 1955. The only pro car in the yard was this '64 Superior Pontiac Consort combination. I was surprised to see how complete it was on the inside, given how stripped it was on the outside. I left today with a full set of combination rollers and other floor hardware, drapery hardware, a Washington cot bar, and a Baumgardner cot bar.

This looks to be the same load door that Superior used on the Sovereign series Cadillacs in '64. Can anyone confirm or deny that?

Looks like the door that was on our '64 Sovereign. Ron Devies has the car now, he can confirm that for you.

It does look similer to the 64 Caddy's loading door
