Photographed May 1980 in Port Jefferson.
Anyone know the story behind this car ? Why was there, does it still exist today ?

If I'm not mistaken, that car is now a part of a restaurant adjacent to the railroad tracks in Stony Brook.

This car was advertised for many years in AAPRCO's Private Varnish magazine.

I believe this car is now on the Reading Blue Mountain & Northern at Port Clinton, PA with new name BLACK DIAMOND.

Maybe someone in the know can confirm this.
