The Verrill Wolf Wagon, a rare Chrysler-powered prototype vehicle included in a private collection affiliated with The Swigart Museum in Huntingdon, was delivered Friday for its date with students in the automotive restoration technology major. The 1953 vehicle, uniquely designed and sturdily constructed of fiberglass, will be repainted and detailed for the exclusive Concours d’Elegance – a celebration of the bygone automobile – to be held June 13-15 at The Hotel Hershey.
