I have heard there are around 8 of them, but really have no idea. Here are some more pics, taken from the internet. By the way, the pic of the green convertible was taken from an old book, so I don't know if it may have been redone in other colors later.
Victor, great minds think alike. I was going to start a thread for each body style. How many total cars are still around? I can think of as many as a few dozen off the top of my head that I have seen over the years. We need to find those owners and recruit them to our forum.
I am guessing that this is the 'McDowell' convertible that was purchased by Jim Neal of East Lansing, MI. It sure looks great with Jim's efforts to leave as much of the car original as possible but make it usable (redoing the front seats and removing some red paint put on by its teenage owner in the '50s)
tim: Mark my hood is complete and you are welcome to examine when you come over to Michigan. Also, the chrome strip or stainless stops at the rear of hood. Does not go to the windshield

harley: My attempt at creating a thread with an attachment of the Royale stationary does not seem to allow the attachment to open for view. What did I not do correctly? This is my first time on a forum so it is all new to me. (Harley)
