Recently picked up a new to me toy. She’s been owned by the same family since sold new in Roanoke, VA at Antrim Motors. Was purchased by a well known preacher, he passed in 1953, then I believe his Wife drove it until her passing in 1968. Their grandson then took ownership. It had a minor cosmetic update in the 70s or 80s in a lighter shade of blue, but was barely driven, and tags finally removed in 99. She has 75,715 original miles, Flathead Inline 6, 3spd with Fluid Drive. Car runs & drives but needs brakes gone through, fuel system gone through & new tires.

I ordered a carb-kit for my spare carburetor last week, It's scheduled to be delivered tomorrow! Then I can rebuild the spare carb, which is the correct model/date range for 1947. I also have a good driver's side hood release cable set to be delivered tomorrow too, since mine is broken near the firewall.

I also was able to confirm the other week that the motor is the original, as per my dealership paperwork that came with the car! However at some point, someone swapped a later model carburetor onto it, and disconnected the factory automatic choke setup.
