    If you are open to a 45 minute drive to Mount Laurel, Saturday mornings starting at 8:30 there is a cars and coffee gathering at the Aloft Hotel on 73 right between the turnpike and 295. Would love to see your rare and beautiful Country Sedan there. I was there this past weekend with her big sister, my 1949 Packard Station Sedan

    Everyone always told me to never get involved restoring or fixing up a 1950’s car.
    reason being the amount of chrome plating involved. Well sad to say they were correct. But the end result was worth every penny spent. Many pennies!

    Thank you, like everyone else’s cars, a lot of blood and bruised knuckles!

    The wagon is beautiful! After 10 years of work, it must be nice to see the finish line.

    My email is in my profile. If you send me an email, we can talk about it. Thanks.

    Thank you. That is the one with electric push buttons, very similar to the GM Wonderbar radios of the day. The little door opens and you set the pointers to the station desired, push the button and the radio sweeps to that spot and stops. Pretty cool, but not the easiest radio to fix. Or maybe I am just a wimp.

    Hi Roy, I don’t have the radio installed as of this date. But it is a Delco Wonderbar with the steel selection buttons. I’ll get a photo of it for you.
    Hi Bill, your car looks wonderful! My car has - had the copper & White left front fender, hood, and drivers door from a donner car. Sorry that the border is closed, hopefully the US government will get this mess straightened out soon. My family has a cottage on PEI and were unable to use it this year. Your car will wait for you.
