AUBURN, Ind. - A northeastern Indiana auto museum is displaying a rare stainless steel Ford dating to the 1930s that's so shiny it's considered a "mirror on wheels."
The Ford Tudor Deluxe Touring Sedan that's on display at the Early Ford V-8 Foundation Museum in Auburn is one of six 1936 stainless steel Fords produced for the Allegheny Ludlum Steel Co. by the Ford Motor Co. Only four of the six cars are known to survive.
The vehicles were originally raw, unpolished stainless steel. But The (Auburn) Star reports the car at the museum about 20 miles north of Fort Wayne has been polished to a high sheen and resembles a "mirror on wheels."
That car was loaned to the museum by Joe and Elaine Floyd of Harrisburg, South Dakota.
