Man, I need those! I can't bid because I don't have a credit card, though, and the bid is already up to $63.00! I know that probably isn't too bad considering the rarity of these things, but I've already tapped out the paycheck on my '61 just getting it to stop running hot, so it looks like I'm gonna have to deal with the old cracked lenses for awhile longer.

Dear friends.

Take care on this. It seems that he is selling just one lens. Not the pair.read carefully the description of the item. "It fits both sides...."

Even though it's only one of those rare lenses, it is easily worth $150.00 or more, so I am not surprised that it's already at $107.00 !

When Chuck Collins some day gets his reproductions done, it's value will crash to about $10-20 more than the repros!

Now, I have seen some 61' lenses before where that side lense was clear instead of red. What is the reason behind that? Is one more authentic than the other?

The answer to that is pretty simple, it would be illegal to use those! They are poor condition used ones, that the red has faded out or rejects that did not get enough red dye in the added in side marker light lense portion. [xx(]:(

Darn (or worse)! Back in the 70s I couldn't give these things away, sold most of them for $5 NOS. I have one left (that I had saved for my '61). Just my luck if I sit on it until they are reproduced.

[:o)]In fact, heree is he exact reply: "Yes, provided that the auction ends at a price that I think is fair. Not exactly sure what that number is right now, but I think it will do well given the interest level. So, please bid with vigor as you could end up with two of these. Thanks".......so, actually, there are no promises. I too wonder what he calls "doing well" ???[:o)]

Yeah, you're right Frank, but that was a pretty good price since the Hawk was just $1,060.00 (with 18,000 miles!)

Yes, Muse was at Corwardin and Simms. GM told Mr. Muse that he had to move and build a new building or he would loose his franchise. He told GM where to stick it and closed up and retired. The building is still there.

Brooks was the service department of David R. McGeorge Studebaker, and when McGeorge moved they set up their own shop where you remember it.

Wasn't that 'Madman' Earl Muntz, who would say on his early TV commercials "I'd give them away, but my wife won't let me.....SHE'S CRAAAAAZY!"?

He would be dressed up as Napoleon........

You're correct Paul. 'Madman' Earl Muntz was the original. Our Virginia version, 'Madman' Dapper Dan, was a johnny-come-lately who never admitted to his wife's mental condition.
