Another pieces of evidence that the Schedule Date can be far from the actual 'build date', 'made', 'born on', 'birthday' of a car.

In order for a car to be built two weeks ahead of the Schedule Date, the Scheduled Date on the tag would have needed to be assigned even earlier than 4/9 or about three weeks ahead of the Scheduled date. That's how far out that particular car was assigned an SPD.

I bought this today from the 2nd owner's estate who was a Chrysler employee who bought it off the executive lot on Lynch Road. The executive who ordered it and drove it for 2200 miles, was Alan G. Loofbourrow, who was hired in 1935 by Walter P. Chrysler and reached the level of Vice President, Director of Engineering. He and Virgil Exner brought the 1960 Valiant to market. He retired in 1977 and passed away in 1990.

The car has 86k original miles and has been sleeping for the past 13 years. It has the factory P42 Security system. Hope to get it running soon, needs a good cleaning, tires, and brakes. More info and pics to follow. Hubcaps and skirts are in the trunk. Glad to be here.
Beautiful car. The color combination is perfect. Please, port more pictures when it is running.
