1949 Kaiser Virginian news, pictures, and information
Chassis Num: 808901
|Sold for $38,500 at 2007 RM Auctions.|
This vehicle was brought to the 2007 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by RM Auctions, where it had an estimated value of $50,000 - $60,000. It was offered without reserve, and since there were not many of these made in 1949, they do not come up for sale too often. The lot was sold for a high bid of $38,500 including buyer's premium.
It is powered by a 226 cubic-inch L-head six-cylinder engine that produces just over 110 horsepower. There is a three-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel self-centering hydraulic drum brakes. It is finished in its original shade of Indian Ceramic and its odometer reads less than 38,000 miles since new. It is the recipient of a cosmetic restoration that was completed in the early 2000s. It came equipped from the factory with a radio, clock and heater plus defroster.
It is believed that less than 1,000 units were created with only a few still in exist in modern times.
