Milwaukee Road Inspection Car

Our friend Bill Stewart recently referred me to Brandt Rosenbusch, the manager for Historical Services at Fiat-Chrysler, which covers Dodge.  He was able to find historical information on our inspection car.  It was purchased at Tesdal Motors in Morris (which went out of business in 1960) and was originally painted black with a broadcloth interior.  He also sent me a package of material with copies of the build card, advertising material, and a complete owner's manual for the car, giving lots of useful technical information, including paint colors and so on.  The Track Dept. guys are taking care of the car now, so I'll hand this over to them for safekeeping, but it should be very useful.
