Nice pic! Can't help but notice the "factory correct" wrinkles in the top of the far left car. And we worry about how our top restos look!!

A few of my relatives (including one grandmother) lived in Coalinga for about a dozen years a couple decades ago. While there, they had a "moderate" Earthquake (almost a 6!). She used to love to tell about how she and the sewing machine had a race for the door to get outside. The sewing machine won.

Nice photo, as for the top 'wrinkles' those will smooth out with the top up now.

Just packing creases on the top material.....note the un-installed top assembly folded at the heels of the gentleman on the far right!

I noticed the finish on the wheels there is a definite shine difference between the steel hub and the wooden portions which I would have expected. Does the car in the center have an unpainted horn or it just the light shinning on shinny paint?

My Granddad used to tell stories of going down and working unloading new cars for the local dealership in Robinson,Il. They would unload the chassis first,then set body on, and finger-tight bolt it.Hook up the linkages,and gas .Some one would drive it about a mile to dealership where it would have fenders and splash shields installed.

Wrinkles aside, notice how "full" the top is with proper pads. Too many tops today look like the rib cage of a starved horse.
