In 1941 the country was gearing up for war, and this involved car
companies as well. Production was slowed, and in 1942 actually shut
down for a few years to contribute to the war effort. As a result,
examples of this car may vary from even car to car, due to limited

For consignment an AACA Senior Badge and Grand National Badge car

wheel also in Bakelite is in excellent condition. Red carpet covers
all floors and is stain free and fluffy. A note on the trunk as it
is paneled with painted pressed board and has a rubber lining that
sits in front of a new spare tire.
Equipping this car is the original 90hp Flathead V8 engine, which
is very clean and well maintained. Attached is a 3-speed
transmission which shifts on the column...3 on the tree!)
Solid, sturdy, rust free, and slightly patina, the undercarriage
looks very nice for this show winner.
Time has passed, and this car has stayed the very same as when it
received a quality restoration 20-30 years ago. Still presents like
