    "One after another they volunteered how in their families and in their communities they were expected to be responsible for their behavior, how honesty was assumed to be the rule, not the exception. They also talked matter-of-factly about the sense of duty to their country, a sentiment not much in fashion anymore."

    That's pretty darned expensive for a tissue box. Do tissues come with it? I wonder if anyone knows if it was an option on the Champ trucks? Kevin at radar school.

        I think these were all dealer installed. My mother had one put in her 53 Champion.

            Well... I suppose one could say that 'something is only worth what someone is willing to pay'. In this case, it seems that 'a fool and his money are soon parted'. Still, I bet the seller is really happy. I suppose I would be.

                Looks like tissues are included. That makes all the difference.

                    That's pretty cool. Did it swivel on the mount? I don't see how you would get a tissue out otherwise.

                        Yes they swivel on the mount. There was one on one of my 1956 Golden Hawks. No idea of when it was installed as I didn't get it until the car was close to 30 years old, although I was essentially the 2nd owner, I think. I kept the dispenser, knowing it was rare. Guess I better polish it.[]
