While the GT is nice, I really like the '52. Who knew such a company existed in our own backyard. Now where did I put theat winning lottery ticket? I can never find that thing when I need it.........

An interesting site and will be an interesting auction, Dick. Are you familiar with the 1942 President being offered? Supposedly the best in the world, and it does look nice.

And I see the allegedly 2,XXX-mile 1956 Sky Hawk has again surfaced; it has been discussed here at length.

That auction company sure plays fast and loose with assorted "facts" and actual mileage claims; they must have a good legal department and a detailed disclaimer form each buyer must sign to purchase a car.

Example: The black 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 sedan is said to "still have its original tires."

Well, they had better be in bags off-site, because they are not on the car. Not only are the ones on the car slightly too narrow a white for 1962 Ford production, the spare tire doesn't even match the four on the ground! And I'm not sure even the spare is an original tire for that car; I'd have to have a closer look at the tread. (The spare's tread appears to wrap around the edge of the pavement contact area, a characteristic that did not appear until 1965 production-line tires.)

Anyway, lots of interesting cars in that sale, to be sure. BP

Dual belt set up on that Hawk? I see other clues on that orange engine.

Strange that the 52 almost appears chopped. I guess it is the camera, but the top looks low. The wire wheels are a nice touch for some added class. The engine, of course, is a 169 not 166, but they got close.
The 62 GT with a supercharger and 4 speed would be a fine car to drive. Those two items are just what my old GT needed.
