I am embarrassed to say that I just got the first of these two coaches home yesterday and did the initial cleaning of 15 years worth of dust. The first time this coach has seen daylight in 15 years. I was pleasantly surprised as to the condition of this one! Needs brakes and exhaust immediately. Tomorrow it is off to have brake lines replaced. I think that I am going to like the '88 Eureka better than the '90 Superior Crown.

Just shows what a little detailing will do. Just like Cinderella. Imagine the two 51 Buicks after a similar dust and fluff. Sure looks sharp! Hope brake lines are not toast.

To things destroy a car sunlight and mice.if you can avoid them storage is not a problem. Rust will grow on the bare spots still but if its dry not fast.

Default '90 Superior Crown

........... and here is the '90 Crown after its first bath in 13 years! Hard to tell, but this one is actually "Shadow Blue", which is an '88 Lincoln color.... according to Superior's info in the door jamb. We ran up and grabbed this one yesterday. Washed it this afternoon.

A couple of minor this to do on both of these, and I will be offering both for sale.

Looks good for a quick dust and fluff. I am sure very few were made. Kinda busy trim wise for my taste but as my first boss at the Packard dealership said "There is an ass for every seat." Sure looks pristine.

I agree with you Pete. Too much bright work for my liking. I prefer the look of the Eureka.

Brake work completed and new exhaust from the converter back. Now just needs her alternator replaced(bad regulator).
