You always wondered what the wood structural members in the base of your Martin-Parry were made from.  Now you know!

This Saturday Evening Post Advertisement is not a Martin-Parry advertisement, but I really liked it anyway.  I wonder how many Martin-Parry vehicles were given a re-paint job just like this?
