Thanks for posting this. I haven't looked into that publication; I like getting my hands on 70's and 80's CAR, Car and Driver, R&T, etc and I get into the personal interest and specialty stories. The photography on R&T Salon has always been outstanding as well; can't tell what year the photos are from. I'm also a history buff (with the worthless piece of paper to prove it). I find it fascinating that this car followed MacArthur around during the war; I assumed he was into Jeeps and PT Boats.
Any idea how well the A/C did or did not work? I didn't realize A/C was available this early; I kind of thought we were talking mid 1950's before it existed. I've got to assume that sucker could freeze you out on old school Freon.
