Dave Reese Posted April 5, 2009 Report Share Posted April 5, 2009 (edited) I have posted a few photos of just some of the classic American cars on display on my Flickr page. These cars are from the Bulgari collection and all drove to the museum as Mr. Bulgari believes that all his cars should be driven from time to time. I will post more photos after the display is completely installed, but it was so much fun to be basically alone with these cars while polishing the bumpers and other bits of chrome and doing finishing detailing this past week. The display opens Saturday April 11, but the cars can be seen now. They will be at America On Wheels in Allentown PA for about 6 months in the West Gallery. Relive your pre-WWII fantasies. I will be posting photos of the Hudson on display for Alex soon, but here is the write up of that particular car: 1936 Hudson Series 65 Custom 8 Convertible L-head Inline straight eight cylinder engine, three speed manual transmission, 120 inch wheelbase This car is a fine example of a super Art Deco design with center mounted dash cluster, disappearing wing window assemblies, electric shifter on column, and very low windshield line. The standard equipment found only on the Custom Eight series includes the large wheel covers, a banjo style steering wheel, a radio with under-the-running-board antenna, and a cigar lighter. This Convertible Coupe also sports various optional equipment including fender mounted parking lights, an electric clock and the “Electric Hand” vacuum-electric transmission control system. This is one of only six known survivors. Who is coming so I can give them a personal tour? Edited April 5, 2009 by Dave Reese Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
