There were 49,966 Sunliner Convertible Coupe body styles produced in 1955. They featured new sheet metal with a wrap-around windshield and rode on a 115.5-inch wheelbase chassis. The inside featured a new instrument panel design that retained the see-through 'Astra Dial' speedometer concept. Power was from a 272 cubic-inch V8 engine offering 162 horsepower and mated to an automatic gearbox. The Tropical Rose and Snowshoe White color combination were unique for the convertible.
The current owner of this car spent six years to complete a frame-off restoration. It has been featured twice in Collectible Automobile magazine.
