Our group, the National Automotive and Truck Museum of the United States, is volunteering to restore a Futurliner. We are all involved in the antique car hobby, and our goal in restoring the Futurliner was to preserve history. We found a person willing to have the original Futurliner tire reproduced at his expense. He’s working with Coker Tire to make this happen. He will then supply, as a donation, the tires for our Futurliner #10. We appreciate this, as we couldn’t have it done otherwise because of the high cost. Our part in the project: Get the original to Coker Tire.
