1928 – 29 Phaeton 35A

NOTE: The following three pictures are believed to be different views of the same phaeton. I do not recall seeing the 2 side views elsewhere. With the 2 side views enlarged and enhanced a few features become apparent that this may be a preproduction or prototype. The pictures were most likely taken in the late fall of 1927. (F.P.)
