A Research Challenge: The 1902 Curved Dash Oldsmobile on Austin Clark’s Roof

Don M. has emailed this research challenge to the many fans of the Long Island Automotive Museum: "Do you have have any information about the history of the 1902 Curved Dash Oldsmobile that was on the roof, over the front door of the Henry Austin Clark Museum entrance? I am trying to find out the vehicle history prior to Austin selling the vehicle in 1965. I'm currently at a dead end with my research, so I hope you will be able to help me".
