One easy way to tell, assuming the seat has not been replaced, is that the Series 62 does not have a front center armrest.  Also, if the car has manual windows, it is a Series 62.

You say you are in a Chicago suburb.  Would that be a northern, southern or western suburb?

If northern, I would heartly recommend Bennett Coachworks in Milwaukee, WI.

Tell 'em Dave Yaros recommended them.

Sorry for late response.... The foamy bubbles only appear when engine reaches near normal operating temp like 170 to 180 degrees F. During warm up everything looks air bubbles/foam. With thermostat installed, my temp gauges pegs full scale when motor approaches the 180 degree mark. As thermostat opens the bubbles appear are in full force and stay steady from there. As flow increases in cooling system with the opening of the thermostat, the temp gauge slowly comes back in range. My guess is the extra circulation carries the bubbles away from the temp sensor and some liquid contact is re-established. I believe my issue is with the left cylinder head area which has the temp sending unit. One other observation: my IR temp gun shows the left cylinder head to be 10 to 15 degree F hotter as the engine warms up and after the bubbles appear. The warm up-bubble process is very repeatable so I'm afraid I have an internal engine issue. I doubt that it would be entrapped air as it would eventually work its way out.....any more thoughts are appreciated.

The '48 with the stitches looks like it had an accident that the owner couldn't get repaired in time for the show. It looked pretty fresh. The stitches were a good way to make light of the damage. I feel for the guy.

The Rebel Machine is an original car that the owner has had for decades.

What a wonderful place! Visiting the Pacific North West is in my bucket list. Mabye the most beautiful part of the world... What happened to the '48 Sedanette? It looks like a collector up to the firewall and like a Rat Rod in front of it  :)
Is this a genuine Rebel Machine? Or a tribute car?
