1927 Chrysler 60
The story of the car intertwines with a lot of local history. Dailey said he'll have people come up to him at car shows and say they changed the oil in it while working their first job at a service station, or that they remember seeing it in various parades over the years.
The car's history is well documented, only having four owners. (All of which seem to have been meticulous about maintaining it properly, including Dailey. People around southern Michigan and Northern Ohio knew of the car and its owners very well. It seems to have become somewhat of a local legend.
Photos of the car in parades go back many years, with the original owner said to have driven Civil War veterans a few times.
Anyway, I'm doing a piece for the News Leader this month on Dailey and his Chrysler, so check it out.
