Hello Gents:
Attached is 144XXX which will debut at its first show in Ohio this weekend. Not a fully finished project yet, but would like to thank the many good folks who lent craft, technical and historic support. I especially want to thank Snyders and Chaffins for the commercial components, as well as Elizabeth Estep, who fabricated this top to my specs.
Ross Lilliker did the motor/trans, with custom fabbed Clamshell rearend by owner. Rewooded body is by Fisher, with top install and full leather upholstery by owner. Extra slippery urethane paint and pinstripes are by Boitnott's Customs.
Regards,
Scott

144XXX

Spectacular! Get your trophies while it's still perfect, and then start touring with it. That car will enhance any tour you take it on!

Many thanks again for these kind words guys. Keith and Royce spent a good bit of their valuable time, working out the dimensional details for this top, and that effort paid out large. Classtique did not have a standard 12 Touring top format previous to this project and it was this research that made this very credible facsimile happen. As anyone here who has put up a building will agree, you can make a dimensional error on your foundation, and you may find yourself fighting that mistake all the way up to the roof. I have had that experience so am sincerely grateful to have avoided the same here. Thanks to Kim Dobbins, whose time capsual 12 serves as the irrefutable model. How fortunate for all that this relic remains preserved as it rolled out of Dearborn 103 years ago.
Regards,
Scott
