1962 photos

Ray Clark posted photos of the car somewhere on this site. Are the soft tops difficult to install? The top appears to be in driver quality shape but the plastic window has yellowed.

1957 blower motor decals

Decal kits have 12 VOLT and MARCH 1957 decals for the blower motor under the hood on the right side. What is the purpose of March 1957?
