Owner's Comments

This car was purchased new in Denver, CO by my grandfather and been in the family all this time.

The original body color was gray w/black fenders. I changed the color during the restoration when I found an original sales brochure with this color combination (maroon with black fenders).

The top is tan & California type (doesn't go up or down & has a headliner).

A picture of car can be found on the Durant Automobile Club website & a story about it in the Durant Family Registry newsletter the "Durant's Standard" of Feb., 1985 & the Jul. 1981 issue of "Cars & Parts."
