    This body of this car became a house in Baldwin Park after World War II. In 1964 it was “liberated” by Orange Empire volunteers and trucked to Perris. It was set on Hollywood Car trucks for a while, and may now be on ex-Chicago Elevated trucks. A set of the correct Brill trucks was recently acquired and will be placed under the car in the future. The car is presently on display in Barn 4.

    I hope someday the Commodore-Business car will be completely restored, before I depart this world.
