"Traveler Roof Rack" made by Chris Craft


the 1948 Chrysler Traveler. According to the article http://barnfinds.com/1948-chrysler-traveler-barn-find/ there might be a dozen or two existing, but between 6 and 9 are owned by Chrysler. Only 4182 were made.

Also remarkable, is the leather cover for the spare tire in a 1950

1930 Lincoln Sport Phaeton with the most beautiful wood steering wheel, and stunning cabinetry for the back seat passengers




Did I understate the steering wheel? I can only recall a couple wood spoked steering wheels, and this seems to be a very early center horn button, or it may be a soft cushion covering the acorn nut




and the leather door panels and pocket looks great!
