Brooklin 1958 Chevrolet Yeoman finished in Anniversary Gold/Honey Beige by John White
Back in 2009 when Brooklin released the Silver Blue Chevy Yeoman wagon, John White did a small run of the Yeoman wagons in the popular paint scheme of Anniversary Gold/ Honey Beige. This limited run was sold through Bob Hooper at Dominion Models in Salem, Virginia. This car was purchased by Rick Thompson in September of 2009. I have just purchased the car from Rick. It arrived yesterday.

For comparison, I show it with a 1958 Brookwood wagon in the same color scheme. The Yeoman was the entry level series. The Brookwood was the mid-level series. The Brookwood had a bit more chrome and the two-tone treatment called for a top that matched the lower bode whereas the Yeoman had the contrasting color on the lower body only. John White did a beautiful job detailing these two-tone versions. I don’t know how many of these he did but it was a very limited run. I am thrilled to have this one.
