Last Call- Carriage On Thy Wayward Son Edition


Long before there were cars and their related horsepower, there were Carriages that were actually powered by horses. This one is particularly notable for bridging that generational gap. Can you determine what the connection is before scrolling down to the comments or doing some sort of Google Fu?

    I'm going to guess the F on the door stands for Fisher.

      Agreed. Also it looks like the carriage depicted on the GM "body by Fisher" sillplates.

      It does appear so, well spotted.

      This coach was built by UAW Local 602 union members and was displayed for many years in Lansing's Fisher Body factory.
      The Napoleonic style coach was adopted as the symbol of Fisher Body in July, 1923

      Well done. Apparently you've stepped on that trim piece a few times, too.

        Well that, plus it has a vinyl roof. Clearly a Colonnade model.

    OT: Greetings from Panama City, where the taxis are Seat Cordobas, firefighters use Ford duallies, and at least one dude drives a Lada Niva.
    Tomorrow, I have a 300 km date with a chicken bus/diablo rojo to the Darien Gap.

      I'm guessing you're not in Panama City, Florida.

        Am at a bar. My esteemed opinion: As to beers, drink Balboa. Atlas and Panama taste like water.
        The local rum, Abuelo, is drinkable.

        For a minute I thought things had really gotten bad in Florida.

    Two tone
    Gold details
    Donking wheels
    A F*cking F on the door
    Must be a pimpmobile

      Sometimes it makes sense to ask Why? before How?.

      I'm curious as to where the hell they get tires for thos things? Maybe the wheels come with them and they never wear out?

    It needs to be lowered 1.5" for the right stance…
