as was common until the 90s, vehicles were used up, then parked off to the side... then forgotten. Well, these 'field finds' were just rediscovered when the family farm was inherited... wow. How come that doesn't happen to me?

Manitowoc Wisconsin's since 1847

Kingsbury's main offices remained in Manitowoc until 1963, when it merged with G. Heileman Brewing Company, which brewed and distributed Kingsbury label products until 1974.

The Geo. Wiedemann Brewing Company of Newport, Kentucky, brewed and sold Kingsbury Beer and Kingsbury Near Beer between 1967 and 1983. The Sioux City Brewing Company of Sioux City, Iowa, brewed and sold Kingsbury Beer from 1959 to 1960.

 The Stroh Brewery Company later, after it bought the G. Heileman Brewing Company, brewed and distributed some Kingsbury labels. Stroh's ceased operation in 1999-2000, and the Miller Brewing Company bought the Kingsbury Near Beer label, which is still brewed and distributed by Miller.

This '53 Stude has 1965 plates

this 46 Pontiac has 1959 plates

and doing the math, that 6 years apart on the plates, and 6 years apart on the model years of the cars... sequentially used cars!

  1. In a way almost seems as if you can better appreciate the work the designers did on these cars when they're in this condition. The chrome pieces that are still shrugging off the elements guide your eyes along the lines of the car despite the opaque paint with its blotches of rust.
