Moving the Sheldon Car
The crate is constructed so that the axles will rest on the upright supports and the wheels will not reach the ground. The car is rather fragile at this point and we do not want to damage it in any way. Lynden Transport will be bringing a heated truck to haul the car so that it is not shocked with temperature or humidity changes during the move. This is very important when handling 100+ year-old cars that are all-original.
The car will be secured down to the crate with straps around the axles to prevent it from moving, and then the crate will be secured in the truck. With all the help from the docents and UAM staff this should be a very smooth operation.
Keep watching for updates on the progress.
