I had been sniffing around for one of these for several years. It is a back lighted box with acitate sheets used to demonstrate the color combos available to potential new Plymouth buyers. Also a upholstery section. I bought it on line but picked it up at Carlisle.
They were first put into service in 1958, I think, and used through 1961 with a up dated "kit" every year. It came to me with a 1959 set of materials but I had anticipated finding one one day and had picked up a complete 1961 "kit" sometime past.
It did need some love, but I just got it cleaned up and operating with the up grade 61 material.......

I was fortunate enough to be present for the delivery. Will had that "Christmas Morning" excitement for this piece. It is extremely cool and a perfect addition to the "Virgil" project.

I anticipated finding one of these for a looooooong time. I paid up for it and have it refurbished to top quality now. A keeper you'd think.
Truth is that I would sacrifice it for funds towards Virgil's restoration if the right deal appeared. Just saying.

I think Virgil's display at BJ will look better with the box... :lol:

I know it made me a happy sucker.....:poke:. The pictures pretty much tell the story. If you have specific questions, please ask.
My dream price is $1500.00. (Would go a long way towards the interior of my 61 Fury convertible).

Thanks for inquiring. (Your inbox is full).
Will.

Thank for the heads up on my inbox. I'm thinking about that light box.
