Don't worry, we are not charging by the pound or by the foot! What
a great representation of the flamboyant 50s. The color, tailfins
and continental kit really represent the era well. I especially
love the clear tubes that deliver cold air to the roof vents. This
is not a perfect car but it is so striking nobody will notice the
few minor flaws.
EXTERIOR: Standing next to the car, it's gleaming. The paint really
is polished out like smooth glass. The sides of the car are arrow
straight. Not a ripple, there's no rust or bubbles. This is a very
dry, clean body. The Bermuda Coral is the factory born color which
I makes this car. All of the chrome is original. It is straight and
shines but shows some wear. The continental kit had stainless
filler extensions. On top of each quarter panel is an air scoop
that only factory a/c cars have. It has original hubcaps with big
wide white wall tires. The jambs are nice and smooth, bottom of the
door is spotlessly clean. Weatherstripping has been replaced.
INTERIOR: The door panels are cool. The have 2 stone, chrome
accents and really cool door handles. They are very good original
condition with just some cracking on the armrest. Seats are
reupholstered and cushions feel supportive. Carpet and mats were
replaced. The instruments, knobs and bezels are in really great
shape. The dash pad does have some wrinkles. The interior lights
work. Has power windows, even the vent windows. Power seat works.
The coolest feature is the "bank teller tubes". These are clear
tubes delivering cold air the the chrome vents in the headliner
that blow down on each passenger.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It is cleaned up nicely under the hood. The
have air conditioning has been retrofitted with the newer R134
freon. It also has power steering and brakes. The 300 horsepower
motor runs smooth.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: All original. It is rock solid and still has the
coral paint it left the factory with. Original mat. The spare is in
the continental kit. Unique air conditioning unit is located in the
UNDERSIDE: Appears to be rock solid original metal. Very original
unabused condition. Being a luxury car, the dual exhaust is kept
extra quiet with a total of 4 full size mufflers. Shocks look
This car will absolutely turn heads and start conversation. It's
not just another car from the 50s, it is the epitome of the
Power vent windows
