Bob Adler, MR. ADVANCE DESIGN, falling in love with a 1938
Suburban!!!!!!??????!!!!!!! My world is crumbling about me <grin>
Seriously, Bob, good luck on the restoration and be sure to post some
pictures somewhere as you progress.
I can't comment authoritatively on the headlamps, but I would probably go
with sealed beam just for ease of finding replacements when necessary.
