just got back from there. Bo has exactly two Forward Looks BUT one of them is a Royal Lancer TWO-DOOR HARDTOP!

Yes, it actually has the "Royal Lancer" name badges on the front fender. It's either a '55 or '56 - dang sure not a '57 or later. I really think it's a '56 'cuz it didn't have the tiny chrome fins riding atop the rear fenders......?

Almost all the glass is gone, grill is gone and part of the instrumentation has been pirated but all body panels were present and seemed pretty rust free. The driver's door has a crease but it's not horrible.

 The second forward look is '59 Dodge four door sedan that has been mostly stripped of it's chrome but body panels are present and rust-free plus the glass seemed all intact.

Bo is a Ford guy so if you contact him he might not remember the Dodges. Tell him they are north and just a little bit to the east of the two 1964/1965 Falcon Rancheros that sit right behind one another and north of the shop buildings.

I'm going back there tomorrow to pull a master cylinder, proportioning valve and brake lines off a '71 Ford van to do a dual reservoir conversion on my '64 Fairlane so if you have any ???s 'bout the Forward Looks PM me tonight and I'll try to get answers for you when I go back.

I won't post Bo's number online but he's listed in the phone book.

His yard is located on Gatlin Road between Duncan and Marlow, OK.

Take Highway 81 south of Marlow (continue south through the flashing lights at the Highway Seven junction) or take 81 north of Duncan (past Osage Road).

Look for Gatlin Road. You can't miss it. It is marked "Gatlin Road" plus the old but restored Gatlin school building and gym are located at the intersection.

Go east on Gatlin.

Go over the railroad tracks and continue east through the intersection just beside the tracks.

You will come to a second section line.

Continue east but start looking to your right for Bo's hand made and small 'Bo's Salvage' sign.

Bo's house is there and the salvage is south of the house.

He has a few old cars (black four door '59 Buick for one) beside his house.

Bo's a nice guy but not a sucker or a rube. A guy named Marvin helps him the run place and the two of them together are sharp as razors. Ya'll treat them with respect and you'll be treated with the same. Bo's prices are darned fair. I'm 99.9% sure he doesn't ship anything.

I bought a '59 Mercury ambulance from Bo's some years back, and he was good to deal with.

Sounds like a 55 Royal Lancer, the 56 have only a Lancer badge on the front fender. Only the 55 Custom Royal had the chrome fins and in 56 they got real finned rear fenders without additional chrome.

Thord is correct. My '55 CRL has the Royal Lancer on the Fenders and the chrome add-on fins. The Royal Lancers may have had the add-on fins.

I snapped a few pics from Bo's to go with the descriptions.

 

this is a Crown btw and is this slick all the way around! the hubcaps are inside. I doubt he would part this one.

The two door is a '55 and appears to be a CRL. Not all CRLs appear to have had the chrome "fins" on top of the quarter panels.

Sure could have ussed the passenger side quarter panel about 4 years ago. That panel on my car appears to hve been grafted on by former residents
of Mexico, using oldfashioned brass and lots of bondo. Didn't even bother to weld the seam in the rear wheelhouse . . . . .Several days of metl work hammering, stretching and shrinking before it would accept a skim coat of body filler . . . . . . . .

Bo's remains open and the cars are intact. Happy hunting, folks.
