Following on A.J.'s idea with convertible coupes, I am creating this thread to post the pics of all the Victorias in 131" wheelbase that I know of. I plan to do the same for all body styles. Most pics I got from the net.
I know the owner's name in a few of the cases but I am not posting them as I don'w know if these people would like it or not, but if the owner or somebody else wants to come forward and edit the posting and add the owner's name, it would help create a much better list.

Thought I would let everyone know I got my 8 - 31 home to Canada . Safe and sound with all the paper work in order . I would like to thank Bill Barker for all his help at the pickup point . I rented an enclosed trailer and 1 bolt fell off the love joy shock . That's not bad in the whole trip of 1,600 miles . There is some rough and steep roads out there .

A.J. Thanks for posting the pictures . I will have to learn how to do it myself . The bottom picture shows 2 cowl vents below the front window painted black . Are they supposed to be a different colour then the body paint ? Do not forget John Barker was an expert on Royale's . So I do not think it is a mistake ? Some comments would help here .

I spoke with Joe Asuchak and he says the chrome strip on the hood does not go all the way to the front window . Thanks to everyone who tried to help answer this question . Does anyone have this chrome piece ?
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)

Kerri Davis: It looks like you've misspelled the word "accross" on your website. I thought you would like to know . Silly mistakes can ruin your site's credibility. I've used a tool called SpellScan.com in the past to keep mistakes off of my website.
