The CarPort emanates from southern Connecticut, where winters are typically mild and snow melts between storms. If we were car breeders, we might describe this vehicle as out of Austin Seven by 1938 Ford.
French engineer Jean Albert Grégoire was a pioneer of front wheel drive and a proponent of aluminum chassis.
The Mathis 666 (6 seats, 6 cylinders, 6 speeds) was shown at France’s 1948 motor show. Retromobile exhibitors include vintage car dealers, auction houses like Bonhams and Christie’s (the latter staging a sale on Saturday), marque clubs, and sellers of parts and literature. A faithful Rétromobilist for the last four years, I was unable to make the trip in 2005. In 1957, Ford introduced the Ranchero, in one stroke of genius inventing the car-based pickup and forcing Chevrolet into a crash program that resulted in the El Camino.
The car above notwithstanding, Packard Motor Car Company omitted any form of wagon from its 1951 to ’56 catalogs. These days Continental is synonymous with Lincoln, but when this Continental was built no one at Ford Motor Company had contemplated such a model.
Continental’s Muskegon, Michigan, plant had been supplying engines for the DeVaux automobile, built in nearby Grand Rapids. Wayne snapped this Flyer coupe at a Veteran Motor Car Club of America meet at Fredericksburg, Texas, in July 2003. This 1985 Executive Limo, one of 759 built that year, is owned by Dennis David, an automotive writer and photographer. Passengers entering this vehicle usually don’t see it from this angle, as their eyes are closed.
The 1937 Buick hearse that instigated this feature was seen at Beaulieu Autojumble, the British equivalent to Hershey, in September 2002. Everyone recognizes this as a Jeep; the more inveterate spotters among us will call it an M38, the military version of the CJ-3A built by Willys-Overland.
This M38-CDN Jeep was indeed built by Ford – assembled by Ford Motor Company of Canada in Windsor, Ontario. Our weld-in 1984-96 C4 Corvette IRS rear suspension kits will allow you to bolt your supplied C4 rear end and either Ride Tech Coil overs or Tech Shockwaves for air ride in place.
Frames over 40″ wide are new rear frame sections, to keep the suspension from binding. New Frame Sections,¬†Frames over 40″ wide, at trailing bar mount location, include new rear frame sections. Barrett-Jackson has gone a long way as the No Reserve auction company, but that wasn’t the case in Palm Beach last weekend, where for the first time in seven years they accepted a reserve on certain consignments (those they valued at over $50,000). Formula 1 world champ Jenson Button has come up with a new sideline: By buying a sports car, seemingly at any price, he can drive it for a year or so and sell it at auction at a profit. Join us each week for interviews and discussions with the foremost personalities in the collector car hobby. High miles are seldom a selling point for any vehicle, but it’s certainly a bigger issue with bikes than cars. The process of consolidation in the auction world took a big step forward today, when Carlisle Events and RM subsidiary Auctions America announced a joint agreement.
Barrett-Jackson briefly scaled back from their 1,000-plus-car extravaganzas of yore, but they’re back to strength now and my do they get the cars. There are two new auctions in Scottsdale next month, one brand new from Scottsdale International Auto Museum, one from the more established Motoexotica.

Jim Benjaminson reports that there’s still plenty of snow in North Dakota, where this Orient Buckboard was photographed about a hundred years ago on the streets of Milton. Who else would organize a February rally for historic cars, the Neige et Glace, held annually in France.


Hardly had I posted to the CarPort than she sent another helping of wet snow to Connecticut. This year, however, we’ve been plagued with weeks of every-day snow, and many of us are suffering from cabin fever. The 30th edition took place from 11th to 20th February 2005, centerpiece of which was a display of prototype automobiles from the 1930s and 40s. Strikingly modern, even for the French, it was judged too radical for its times, when the nation was still recovering from wartime deprivation.
Roving correspondent Taylor Vinson was on hand, though, and we have him to thank for these photos and his impressions of the event.
Chevy held on the longest, the El Camino leaving production at the end of the 1988 model year. Some 1941 Chryslers were built with it, and the option was extended to DeSoto for 1942, but it’s uncertain whether, due to the war-shortened model year, any were built.
One has to wonder whether the marque might have fared better in the 1950s had that innovative spirit been allowed to continue.
There are two major clubs, Packard Automobile Classics and Packards International, and two museums, the National Packard Museum and America’s Packard Museum.
He travels widely, is always on the lookout for remarkable vehicles, and takes lots of pictures. This is a 1933 Continental Flyer, built by the Continental Automobile Company, a division of Continental Motors.
But in 1932, when the DeVaux-Hall Motors Corporation failed, Continental took over its Michigan assets to settle unpaid bills for engines.
From the 1930s there have been long-wheelbase cars in all lines, even, for a time, Plymouth. Brainchildren of Chrysler’s Special Vehicle Projects executive Bob Marcks, they were introduced as 1983 models. The coachwork, which may look unusual, is British, and the chassis underneath it is Buick, not terribly common for a hearse. The market is changing, however, and more and more funeral directors are using alternative vehicles, some converted from minivans. The eagle-eyed will suspect that the maple leaf flag has some significance and well it does.
Each weld-in kit is specifically designed per Make & Model for the easiest installation for the do it yourself builder. We also custom build for non-stock frames or most vehicles not listed.¬† Tech Sheets can be found in our Tech Information section. With Kruse gone and ICA scheduling no 2011 auctions, it’s really a wash in terms of the number of sales. They didn’t have snow tires, so our inventive Dakotans wrapped some rope around the rear tires. He sent this pic of Bas Jansen exercising his Austin Seven special in the recent snowfalls in The Netherlands.
The original Ranchero had a short run, 1957 to 1959, but it returned in 1960 as a Falcon and last appeared in the intermediate Torino lineup in the 1970s. Operation was much more convoluted, too, as each lamp had to be cranked individually and then switched on.
Building the last few DeVauxs in the plant, Continental brought out their own car for 1933, in three models: an entry-level Beacon four-cylinder model, a Flyer (the type photographed by Wayne), and a top-of-the-line Ace.
Jim Benjaminson, stalwart stanchion of the Plymouth Owners Club, owns this rare 1940 P10 Deluxe 7-passenger sedan, one of three known survivors of 1,179 built. Both an Executive Sedan and an Executive Limousine were built through 1984, after which just the Limo was continued. He reports that it belonged to a Connecticut funeral home, but was taken out of service in 1992 and has only recently been retrieved from storage. Some interesting facts about the M38-CDN can be found at the M38 page on the Jeep Web Ring.


Bas, with his father Gerrit, runs Carrosserie Bouw Jansen (not to be confused with Jensen Motors, the British coachbuilders who bodied many well-known 1950s-70s cars). His family and his ’31 Hudson, seen here, long for warm weather so they can go touring.
Lucien Rosengart was a French industrialist whose first car was a licensed version of the Austin Seven (check out the Austin Seven Owners Club). After all, for the last 25 years the best selling American vehicle has been a pickup, and even Cadillac now offers a crew cab. In addition to the standard Airfoil lights, one got directional signals, a lighted hood ornament, Fluid Drive with a Simplimatic (semi-automatic) transmission, electric clock, eight-tube high fidelity radio with electric antenna, steamlined rear fender shields (skirts), a plastic steering wheel with built-in cigarette case, white wheel trim rings (phony whitewalls), pushbutton starter, cigar lighter, bumper bars (guards) and exhaust extension. A number of prototype cars, both at Chrysler and at General Motors, used hidden lamps in the 1940s.
Prior to World War II there were wood-bodied wagons in both the One-Ten and One-Twenty lines, and who could forget the stylish 1948 Station Sedan, though it was more of a half-timbered affair.
If that wasn’t enough, the entry-level 200 series included a Business Coupe, basically a two door sedan with no back seat. At first I thought it was a cut-and-applique job on a 1951 Patrician sedan, but if so the rear door configuration has been significantly altered. At the top of the line were the Crown Imperials, like this 1941 model and this 1956 Forward Look example (thanks to Dave Duricy and The Imperialist).
Power came from a normally-aspirated Mitsubishi-built 2.6 liter four, as used in most Chrysler minivans. Dennis, also a sagacious appraiser, feels that the Little Limos comprise some of the most undervalued special-interest cars from the 1980s.
But when American Bantam had insufficient capacity to meet government orders, the main contract was let to Willys-Overland, a contender in the original competition.
By the end of the thirties, he was building larger models like the front wheel drive Supertraction.
Converted from a Custom Fordor sedan, it has a 1947-53 Advance Design Chevy box and fenders.
CarPort visitors are invited to tell us what was the next American production car to use hidden headlamps. In the twilight years, 1957 and 1958, there were also station wagons, though these were more Studebaker than Packard. 3,310 were built in 1933, and a further 953 Beacons were sold in 1934 before operations ceased. Later, Ford Motor Company, also a contender, was brought in, and for most of the war near-identical designs were built as the Willys MB and the Ford GPW. In New Jersey, where I was born, my parents kept their Model A outside, and when they needed to go out wielded the business end of a shovel. This 1949 Ford makes one wonder if the Ranchero doesn’t have much deeper roots in Dearborn.
See our contact page for details – extra credit if you send some pix of that car, both wide open and eyes wide shut!
Continental Motors was acquired by Ryan Aeronautical Company (builder of Lindberg’s Spirit of St.
An original car, it was first owned by the Philadelphia Electric Company and used for executive transportation. In 1994, he spent a couple of days with this Superior Buick Sovereign commercial glass coach, while on a job writing its owner’s manual. Although the Buick Sovereign was discontinued when rear-drive GM cars disappeared for 1997, Buick funeral vehicles will continue.
