My son and I have been going thru pictures of 27 Stars and have a basic question about the convertible roadsters. Did they all have a rumble seat, or was this specific to a different model. We don't see any pictures that distinctly show the rumble seat. It shows up in the factory brochure photos for the M2, but not for 1927. Does anyone have brochures or photos showing the rumble seat? By the way, we took our maiden voyage around the block today, running on vacuum tank gas. Ammeter works, oil pressure works--we are thrilled!! (But I broke the wood convertible top brace :sob:
Also, does anyone know if the Star front bumpers actually had a star on them? Mine does, and although it looks period correct, I wonder since the chroming doesn't look proper.
OK, so I am officially confused. My car looks "nearly" identical to yours, except there are steps on fender, hand rails on the sides and a rumble seat. VIN says model M, with serial numbers matching 1927. What am I missing?
