    Thanks, Bob! I figured it must be SB and I did some looking for clues but I couldn't locate a picture of the Dew Drop Inn that matched the shot in the video.

      I didn't see anyone mention that it IS a Rare '60 Lark 2 Door Wagon, IMHO THE Best looking, and next to the Last Year for 2 Door Wagons.

      It Runs Really Good, considering it lost a Car Muffler, a Truck Muffler and a Camshaft!

          That might be the south wall of The Dew Drop Inn, Bob; the wall you would see if you approached the building from the north, driving south on Lafayette Street, approaching Sample. I'm not entirely sure of that, though. BP
          We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

          Ayn Rand:
          "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

          G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

            If it was any rustier, it would look like my Hawk. Thanks for posting.

              That's a prototype '59 Champion 6 wagon with dual exhausts, as seen left on the road. The easy access for brake light issues should have made it into production.

                It was designed in, timed to open up, just before you needed to change the bulb!! The factory left it up to the customer how he wanted to close the access hole when done, though.

                    As rusty as that car was, amazingly they didn't have to slam the door twice to get it to shut, and they stayed shut.
