Lindsey & Son Funeral Home in Harrisonburg, Virginia is where it was used until the 60's and was in the back of a garage of the funeral home for over 40years. As far as the tunnel lights I will have to check.

Bo has a great eye. Someone asked me to post pictures of it. Didn't realize someone already had. I thought the 51 was my favorite but I have fallen for this car. Lucky enough to see the collection everyday.

Awesome! Reminds me of when I had the engine pulled from my '39 LaSalle. Your '37 looks wonderful! Congratulations for helping to preserve this jewel of automotive history.
