Hello all,

I would like to add #15006 to the survivors list.

I have recently been awarded the honor of caring for this car. It will be in my possession soon. Does anyone have info on this car? Acquired in Northern California around 1975

Great car Jesse! Congrats.

Here's a period photo of 15010 owned by the King of Belgium. Yours would have looked very similar when new.

Hi Jesse,

My father had a good friend with a '52 cab in Berkeley. His car helped inspire my father to buy his '53 cab in 1955. Unfortunately I don't know the chassis number of the car but I think the engine number was P-30440. Last I heard of the car it had been sold to a fellow in San Ramon, CA in the '70's. Do you have any history of prior owners of your car?

30440 was the engine of a 1952 cabriolet 10333, Milton Cooper!?

Perhaps, you have pics of your fathers car? My mail albert-haefner@t-online.de

Hi Albert,

Thanks, yes Milt Cooper was my father's friend! I may have some photos of Milt's car, but they are after he had "updated" it in the 70's. I still have my father's car, 60048, you probably have photos of it as I have been getting it out more these days.

oh yes, a very nice and original Fashion grey 1500S BTG990. Ex uno Uban and Norwitt Motors.

Have pics. Would be interesting to see the pics of Milts car. I may have pics of this car too, but without knowing the VIN.

Hi Alan,

The car was bought from a man named Bill Brady out of Santa Cruz, CA. I'm actually on the hunt for him if anyone knows him PLEASE put me in contact. When my father purchased the car from him, he left the original engine with him thinking that he would just get it at a later date... Well, a few decades passed and who knows what happened to it... Unfortunately, I don't know the number of the engine to try and track it down. Any help with this would be appreciated!
