Default My new 1960 Superior Crown Royal

Here are a bunch of pics of my new arrival . Got her a couple weeks ago. I have had my hands full moving stuff around to make space for her. A special thanks to Atti for letting me know that she was available, and putting me in touch with her owner. With the exception of the 3-way table and headliner, most of the interior was disassembled. It has been a challenging but fun slowly putting her back together. She still needs a lot but coming along nicely.

Also thanks to Paul Steinberg for the info on the level matic, and Brady D Smith for sending me some interior shots. Those have been very helpful in putting her back together.

I'd be very interested in acquiring one of those tires with the uniques "ambulance service" lettering. PM me if possible.

Congrats Paul!
I've followed the life of this coach for years in Colorado... recognized it as soon as the first photo opened. Shocked to see she sold it and glad it found another good home with you!
