I have been talking with Dale off and on and we are trying to round up pictures and some video to try and come up with a proper historical record of all this

That one on ebay is one of three that were modded by the City of Buffalo in the early 60's all the same - I still have mine safe and sound; under cover - still collecting parts...

Obviously one I have - the second is on ebay - and the third is in Texas waiting to be restored at Mullins (then rumor has it is Hawaii bound)

It's somewhat confusing since they all wear the same distinctive color but there are significant differences in condition if you really look...
