    New member, would appreciate any information you could share with me on my car
    .
    As per Richard Quinn in the link in Post #9 above:
    "Know the car well. It is a '40 Champion (not '39 as stated). Yes, done by Derham of Rosemont PA. The cost of the body was $2500 in 1940. Restored back in the 1970s by the late Sam Alcorn of Bethelehem, PA. He passed away only a few months after completing it. The current owner is a friend of Sams. Believe he is re-restoring it. I have photos of it when it was just completed. It started life as a 4-door sedan painted Laurel Green serial G-46072. Have a lot of original documentation on it. Not a factory job so did not mention it in my previous posts. "

    Original documentation on it available here: http://cccamuseum.org/Explore/Archives/Archive-Viewer

      I sent the owner an email with the information I had.

      I fabricated a story years ago about an incident in Chautauqua, but when I wrote it I changed convertible to coupe thinking that she (the person I helped in with her groceries) must have been mistaken. I think her husband/ or dad was a millionaire and a race car driver, so the story of it being a gift makes a lot of sense.
