I found this photo at My Link page for the "Illinois Railway Museum", located to the right of Your computer screen.

A recent and long sought after acquisition for the Illinois Railway Museum, was preserved Chicago, Aurora And Elgin Railroad lightweight interurban car # 460, built by the Saint Louis Car Company in 1945.

Seen here is an interior photo of C,A & E car # 460, wich is reported to be the "last" new interurban car built in North America. It was one of the last in service, when the C,A & E suddenly "Ceased" all passenger service on July 3rd, 1957.
After operating for many years at the now defuncr Trolleyville USA in Olmstead Falls Ohio, It now resides and operates today at the Illinois Railway Museum.
