Default The Eureka (1964 and under) Photo Thread

I would like to start a thread featuring pictures of various years and models of each coach builder. So, sence my favorite coaches are 64 and under Eureka's, I thought we would start with the Eureka thread. I'll kick it off with a couple.

1961 Eureka Limousine Style Combination, Owned by PCS member Virgle Onnen.
1963 Eureka Landau End-Loader owned by PCS member Nick Elias.

I remember when John Schmidt first purchased Virgle's '61 Combination. It was pulled out of an old garage and had some sort of engine problem that required quite a bit of work. It was originally black and John had it repainted a dark burgundy. John ultimately ended up selling this car to Bill Marcy, and his '57 Eureka ambulance to someone else, don't know who. Virgle has it now and obviously it's in loving hands. A wonderful thing!

Is this thread for just the Rock Falls cars (1964 and under), or any/all Eurekas?

Here are three from the '63 full line brochure:
