    Finally, an old car where the roof hasn't been chopped down to leave a 3" high windshield, and all anyone does is gripe gripe gripe

    This car would bring balance to the force at a car show. It makes up for about 70 chop tops.

    And I still like it. It's unique.

    There's a Class 'C' of about the same vintage at a yard along Interstate 5 down near Vader, WA.
    I'll have to see if I can find a link to it.
    It is supposed to have an Isuzu diesel installed under it's hood.

    Therefore this thread is second.

    Creepy indeed.
    I'd drop a Packard engine into it in a heartbeat.
    Oh, wait...

    Looks like maybe a 160 Packard chassis Henney commercial hearse with the top hat grafted on.

    I suspect the seller will be waiting a loooong time for the first bid @ $25K.

    LOL, love it! Yeah Witt, it does look a bit like a tatty old man wearing a beat-up old top hat. The vehicle also looks like something the Addams family or the Munsters would be touring around in. Yeah, a nice late-Packard V8 with an ultramatic would do this old beauty up nicely. LOL, at twenty-five large, this old thing is likely to reside where it is for quite some time. Who knows what the 'bay might bring though?

    $100,000 would be on the low end I would think. Once again I seem to have lost my winning lottery ticket....now where did it go.....????

    Hey could we stick a hopped (bored and stroked) up Packard V8 in there with dual quads and Ultramatic?

    Wouldn't that be a cool ride to an IM? However, at the $25,000 starting price, it may sit there another seventy-eight years. My estimate for a restoration, at least another $100,000.

    Speaking (or more likely: writing) about Cadillac, there was a -53 motor-home for sale in Sweden this summer, some "factory"-made thing.
    Didn't really need it thou...

    Neat!
    I'm wondering what that Cadillac finned sports car in the background is.
