This vehicle is a very rare 2-door Manhattan sedan equipped with many option. It is number four of 44 examples produced. It was a Kaiser executive's personal automobile.
The 1955 Manhattan was given a facelift of the original Darrin design that had been introduced in 1951. It was given all-new sheet metal forward of the cowl, wrap around rear window, large 'Safety-Glo' taillamp with illuminated lenses running on top of the fenders and new interior. Power was from a 226 cubic-inch inline six-cylinder engine fitted with a McCulloch supercharger and offering 140 horsepower. The car rode on a 118-inch platform and pricing started at $2,334. Sadly, very few examples were produced as production ended part way through the 1955 model year.
