Yep Factory Drapes but not tied off correctly. If not looked after they get tatty and dishevaled.

Looking closely, there are two things that stand out about this car:

The landau bars are from Superior and, up until recently, have been found on Superior coaches throughout the years.

The drapes are also from Superior. Superior used them on their commercial glass coaches of that era.

I guess you could say that it is just another "mutt" coach that makes this hobby so interesting!

Isn't the rear interior ornamentation also Superior? The partition(glass) looks Superior as well to me.

Seems like I need to put my glasses on more often. I have a 94 Superior sitting right here and yes they are Superior bars and the same curtains as in the one here. The Glass on my 96 has S&S on it so I guess the one we have here was a "we are out of stock on the S&S parts today" when it was built who knows? Congrats on having sharp eyes.

Default 93-96

I am curious what you all think about how these cars are holding their age, to me the commercial glass Victoria's and Masterpieces of the '93-'96 era are looking their age a bit now, and the non commercial glass '93-'96 are REALLY looking their age.
But, everyone is different and views them differently..
The commercial glass coaches 93-96 to me still look great. I,am looking for a 95-96 anything without a blue interior.

The mirrors on the 93-94 on the door date the coach for me ,95-96 is on the top front of the door and blend in better. I had a 93 but had the dreaded blue interior .

I am not saying the cars don't look good anymore, I am saying each car reaches a point where one day you look at it and things have just advanced in design so much, that the car has an older look overnight. I recently reached that point on the recently traded '97, and one of the things I thought dated it was the tail lights, carried over from the '93-'96 body style...
