I have (again) spoken with the current owner of the Diner Car in Winslow AZ and she sent me additional photos of both the exterior and the interior of the diner car.
This is her original Email to me:
Our diner is an authentic 1946 Valentine Diner, masters model, floor-plan #3.
It has to remain in its original location, and retains most of its original features, such as the lockbox (you can see features on Kansas State Historical Society’s website/Valentine Diners). We are in the process of renovation.
Any interested parties can contact us regarding our progress. The pictures attached were taken before work was begun. We are also in the process of getting it on the National Register of Historical Places, which will lower the property taxes and draw nationwide attention to the diner.
As is, we are asking $85,000, which includes the property (about 1/12 acre), located right on historic Rt. 66 and across from the famous La Posada Hotel. As more work is done, the price will increase. Please feel free to spread the word! Thanks so much for your assistance.
Her Email contact is firstname.lastname@example.org and please do not overwhelm her with Email other than those who are interested in purchasing – as this was a concern she had with me reaching out to everyone.
This is about three blocks away from the ‘Standing on the Corner’ park and the gift shop and there is plans to open up an old fashion soda shop across the street from the park – and RIGHT across the street from this diner car is the La Posada Hotel – which is ALWAYS packed.
As we all know – these diners are a RARE find along the route and I do expect this to be picked up by someone who truly loves the route and is looking to own a VERY important piece of it’s history…
