Your G2 information is needed! Maintaining the status of the known Glasspar G2’s is becoming a bit more difficult, as the number of cars in the registry has now exceeded 70! The family of surviving cars is now in excess of 70% and growing.
If you are involved in the G2 community, please stay in touch, or get in touch, and say hello… the cars do change hands, and some of the information on the status of known cars is years out of date. The G2 Registry is a benefit to everybody involved as it lends legitimacy and recognition to the marque, and with more G2’s being restored now than ever before, the value is obvious.
As of this date, your G2 Registry has a total of 73 cars. I have images of all cars listed on the roster, except for 10. All of the “numbered”, or Glasspar G2’s with a body number, total 22. Of course, all cars have a number, but the body tags were removable. Most of these factory body tags have been lost, or removed and not reattached, so the body number is unknown.
Many cars that have no tag, have a body number stamped into a threshold plate, or the door latch plate for the passenger door. I have 8 cars listed with chassis numbers on “factory” Post frames, and 2 cars that were Chattanooga Boiler cars. There are several G2’s with chassis numbers from the donor car that remained the VIN for the G2.
Many cars have no numbers at all, or State-stamped VINs generated by the state. We now have at least 21 cars fully restored, and another 9 under restoration. There are 8 cars located outside the U.S. 1 (each) in Argentina, England, Holland, Germany, Belgium, Canada, and 2 in Sweden. 1 Possible in Mexico City, but unconfirmed.
If you own a Glasspar G2, or know of one, please help to update the Registry with any ownership changes, condition and/or status changes… photos always appreciated, and if you need an image of a certain car, please ask, always happy to assist. If you know of a G2 in your area, please advise. A restored example showed up on a used car lot in Boise,Id late last year. I have photos, but the car remains a mystery. Thanks, everybody, stay in touch.
