Artifact Condition: This vehicle is in very good shape, but only surveyed from the front. Bumper is present and mounting points are visible. Possibly an insignia in the center of it. One headlight is still mounted on a flat horizontal cross bar at the midpoint of the radiator. Top of the radiator is decayed. Engine appears to be present. Firewall is in good shape. Engine covers are gone. The vehicles cab appears to be fully intact with a narrow front window arced at the bottom and a hard top with a sloping visor. Top seems to be entirely intact and looks like it only goes a short distance back giving the impression that this is a 2 door.
Additional Information: This is probably a Buick Marquette Coupe which would have a rumble seat in the rear. Brisingids block much of the after view of the vehicle in this survey.
