Body, Paint and Mechanical Comments - This car runs excellent! Paint chipped in places, upholstery split in places and paint chipping on dashboard. Body under doors is cracking, the longest crack being 4" and with no gaping or no width to the crack. Some original leather above dash, running boards and floor covering have wear holes, nickel on bumper, lights, dash and glass windscreen shows wear, speedometer not working. The generator and magneto have been rebuilt.

History Comment - The car was bought in 1925 by seller's grandfather in Shawnee, OK from Dr. Jayman. A vacuum fuel pump was installed in the 1920's. The car is mostly original except top, upholstery, paint, muffler and tires.

It was driven by Susan Hayward in the 1949 motion picture "Tulsa". The car was rented from the seller's grandfather for only $50.00. Currently the car is driven in a few parades or shows a year.
