Who can help?
(20 XII 2001) Jim Finnance from Granby, Connecticut (USA) is collecting information about all
survived convertible 1940 Dodges. 10 cars are already located. Are there more?
Jim would appreciate any contacts regarding 40 Dodge in general or addition information
regarding the Convertible series due that they are extremely rare as well as beautiful.
Please write to Jim: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (Work phone # 1-860-653-6571).
This pictured tan convertible Dodge was restored by George Eldridge of Belhaven, North Carolina in 1992.
