Newbie with a ‘48!

Postby Miss_Val » Thu Jan 11, 2018 3:33 pm

Hey everyone! My brothers and I inherited our grandparents’ 1948 teardrop, and we’re getting stared on fixing it up. We can’t find the make anywhere, does it look familiar to anyone? It’s being registered so we can move it and start using it, so we’re pretty excited. I look forward to alllllll the info I can glean from this lovely group! ImageImageImage

Maybe a Kenskill or Kit. We have a '46 Modernistic but it's different than yours. Someone here will know what it is.

I think it's a Kit... but I'm no expert.

If you need parts, I'd suggest you call George Wilkerson––he is an expert on the old classics––at the Teardrop-Fix-It shop a couple hours up the road from me in Victor, MT. He's got the right trim and hardware for the old classics.

That's a sweet project with the family ties. Here's another 'drop that's been in a family for generations:
