Paxton

I was the weekend curator at the Brooks Stevens Auto Museum in Mequon, WI when I was in college. We had the B & S Paxton there at the time. The museum closed after Mr. Stevens' death, and I don't know what happened to the car after that. The inventory was sold off by his evil sons (for chump change), while Alice Preston, the head curator, retained much of the Excalibur inventory for her shop, Camelot Classics in Milwaukee http://www.excaliburclassics.com
You may wish to forward your search directly to her.

Is that the one where the top and trunklid were exactly the same shape, and you could remove the top and place it down over the decklid for open-air driving?
