Default 28' Meteor Pics. Info Needed

I just picked up a 1928 Meteor 666M Hearse that has been sitting since the early 50s. This has already started restoration and should be completed by this time next year. I'd like to find a source that has Continental Motor parts so I can completely rebuild it. The only thing I have found so far that is missing from the car, is the flower tray that fits in the rear section of the hearse. Hopefully you guys have some ideas. This car will be restored to its original glory and actually used for it too. Click on the link if you want to see pictures of the car.

Welcome Jeff!

This is an amazing coach. We on the forum were recently discussing this car as seen here: http://www.professionalcarsociety.or...ad.php?t=10031 I know i for one was very curious as to where this beautiful piece of procar history would end up. Good to know it has a good home. Congratulations on your new acquisition. Hopefully others will be able to chime in with your needed info.

I believe this would be correct for the time period. The only one I've seen complete is on Kayser's early Studebaker Hearse. It would also need the brackets for the tray.

This tray was on a 1930, now on a private collection, Maybe I can request some measurements but I think it's really easy to build one.

That would be helpful and very appreciated. If you're nice to them, try to get more pictures of it too.
