Default Cathedral Glass Coaches

Let's talk about these. Having just been introduced to their existence, I'm wondering if any one can shed some more light on them. Does any one know of any?

There's at least one that survives. I visit it with regularity.

Would you happen to have pictures of it and would you be willing to share if you do? That is such a neat feature.

Pat, are you referring to the early 1961 Superior coaches pictured in the new TPC? These are new to me too, and I was going to start a thread like this as well. I'm very curious if any survived...

Thanks Atti. However, I am referring to the '61 Superior limo styled coaches with the stained glass treatments in the quarter windows. This past issue of TPC really got me excited. Being a "Superior Person" it was a rush of information for me.

The ones for 61 did not sell very well, and were only offered through 62 and quietly discontinued. They were just a plastic insert, just like the ambulance signs in a combo. The Superior book also shows one on page 260.
