Our new '54

Here is our new O 6039 1954 Safari we purchased last week. We go get it over MLK weekend. We're in NY and this one is in central Florida. We are excited to finally have a 13 panel in the inventory.

Congrats,

I saw this thread while my wife is logged in. But I can't help myself. We recently purchsed a '56 and I am anxious to hear what you are going to do to this one. Was this one built in CA? I ask because the door is on backwards and I have only seen that from the CA. plant. We will be keeping an eye on your progress with this so please post all that you can.

Dave, I've still got lots of work to do on my 56 Safari, and may have parts left over. : ) I'll keep you in mind too!

Nice one Rob. You still have $ left over after that emblem?

Have a safe trip without any excitement.

Dave,

The letter O preceeding the serial number indicates the Ohio plant.

Looks like a nice find Rob.

Looking forward to your build out of it.

We've got a couple of friends who will be redoing their's (52 and 53) this spring/summer.

It is always exciting watching the revival of a 13 panel - not that I am biased in any way.

More fun for you and your family Rob. Congrats! But where will you park it? The New Years Resolution certainly did not last long

Nice job on adding a 13 panel to your flock! Cool trailer, I know you will do it justice.

Congratulations on your 13 panel find, Rob. What did you say on your blog? That you need help for your addiction? Seems like you are doing fine by yourself.

WOW... I am jealous. You should focus as much time as possible on getting that trailer ready for The Cherry Blossom Rally. It will be the bell of the ball...
