No,- all the fwdlook 6 seater wagon's always have manual tail gate window in 1957.

Outstanding job!! Amazing!

What will it take to get it inspected?

I have a Fireflite "wagon", but it isn't drivable yet...it could count as 12 of 11...

Thanks Brad,

I know that you own an ambulance wagon, but your car is based on an sedan, thats why I don't count it as a "wagon".
The registration fails, because I couldn't show them the right papers from customs. The Car came into Europe 15 yrs back,- so to find such papers in retrospect will be almost impossible.
But I can run this Flite with changeable license plates w/o full registration, so its solved for the moment.

I am really sorry for your sake Thomas! So many of us overseas have been in trouble at the registration. Is it the title which is missing?
I think not all states had a title paper 1958...not sure...

Ralf is correct. Some states in the past could transfer a car ownership with a bill of sale and registration but not sure that could help you. There are a couple of companies here in the states that can still do this but you have to contact them to see if they can help. Try this one, broadwaytitle.com
