This particular example is a Drophead Coupe with coachwork that was built by Park Ward. It is one of only 27 examples produced. When it was built, it was the most expensive production car and the fastest 5-seater in the world.

This Drophead Coupe is finished in tan with brown fenders and skirts with red pin-striping. It has chromed Flying B mascot, fender mounted mirrors, chrome bumpers and bumper guards and chrome grille. It has left-hand drive configuration and the interior features gray leather upholstery with contrasting piping, wood grained dashboard, window sills, defroster and Smiths gauges. The car is powered by a 4.2-liter inline-6 cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission controlled by a column-mounted shifter.
