Convertible and 1/2 of a body of a coupe, numbers unknown
George & Frances Phelps
The Vessel ledgers show that Arnolt convertible 316 was shipped on the SS Annik with convertibles 310, 313, 318, 319 and 320, and coupes 315 and 317, received in Chicago on 24 June, 1954. Purchaser was J. S. Inskip, New York, on 4 May 1955, invoice 28. This rough and partially-disassembled but largely-complete car, and a partial coupe, appeared in a minor CT auction, described as "from a local New Hartford collection." Altho missing the Arnolt ID plate, the XPAG engine number matches the record for convertible 316. After the sale, ownership was unclear (there was an indication that the seller's estate did not actually own the car, but that he had stored for a friend) and its present whereabouts are unknown. Despite its derelict condition, it appears largely complete.
