Beller Museum tour 03/29

 

We will be taking an exclusive visit to the BellerMuseum  in Romeoville, Ill on Sunday March 29th.

This is a Museum primarily of older Ford vehicles from the 1920’s thru 1930’s

WRAPUP:  We had a nice group despite the cold and later rainy weather..  The museum was an amazing collection of autos and trucks in various states from showroom perfect to drivable authentic restorations, to waiting to be restored..  Lots of very rare machines and many from similar vintages to compare and contrast the model detail changes from year to year.

Huge thanks to Jordon and Corinne for opening up and sharing this amazing collection, plus the stories behind the vehicles!!
