Time capsule shaped like a ’57 Plymouth Belvedere? You’re all wet!


Alas!  Initial word out of Tulsa is not encouraging.  The buried 1957 Plymouth Belvedere was in a concrete vault, and sealed in plastic, to protect it from the effects of being buried.  It may not have been protected well enough — when the cover was pulled off the vault yesterday, the vault had several feet of water.

The story is told well, here, on the Route 66 News blog.

Photos do not encourage me.  The residue on the sides of the vault is a rust color.  That could be from the red soil (does Tulsa have red soil?) — or it could be from rust from the car.

Here’s hoping the car was protected from the water . . .

Official opening is set for tomorrow, June 15, 2007.

    Here are some high resolution pictures of the car and the items that were stored inside it. Looks like a “fixer upper”
