This car has an older ground-up restoration, which still shows well in modern times. It is finished in pewter, complemented by a deep brown beltline, fenders and wheels, as well as orange pin-striping. It shows some cracking and chipping, particularly in the higher-stress areas.
Period features include dual spares with metal covers and jewel-like chrome-plated rear view mirrors, wooden artillery wheels, whitewall tires and a rear-mounted luggage trunk. There are period features such as a correct cluster-type taillight and a pair of chrome-plated external horns. The car has less than 87,000 miles. The engine is a 366 cubic-inch, side-valve eight-cylinder engine delivering 125 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual transmission and four-wheel servo-assisted mechanical drum brakes.
This Convertible Sedan is a former Classic Car Club of America National First Prize-winner.
