I've read that after Harry handed the White House keys over to Ike, he and Bess drove back to Missouruh, taking their time and stopping along the way to visit friends......the presidency wasn't quite so imperial in those days. As to the '53 road trip, some old folks still remember Harry stopping at gas stations and drinking Cokes with mechanics in the garage,etc.

I'm not sure, but I think he actually took a train most of the way back home. But you're right, he liked to drive and had the people's touch. We don't think of Truman as particularly charismatic, but I met someone who knew him and said that even when he was in his 70s he had amazing presence...

I'm researching these cars, too, and need to get in touch with you about yours. Do you mind sharing the 4 middle #s of the VIN (serial number)? Should be 62- -. You can do it privately if you wish.
