1930 Town Sedan by Tommy Burlingame

This '30 Town Sedan was found in a garage in West Bloomfield by Jim Burlingame in 2016, and had not been started since the 1970's. After some on-site work to get it running, the car was backed into it's new home under it's own power - a testament to the build quality of these remarkable vehicles - to begin life anew! As of December '22, work continues with aligning the body on the chassis!
