Vehicle Description

This 92-year-old great vehicle is owned by my recently widowed mother. I, her son, am selling it for her. She is the third owner. We don't know anything about the first owner. The second owner from a Minnesota farm sold it to my father. It did not need any repairs as it ran great.

The pictures were taken in the summer of 2019. We are unable to deliver, so of course, the buyer would have to pick up the vehicle. It is located in the zip code of 60091. It needs a new engine gasket and the gas tank and line need to be cleared out. Any type of repairs that may arise in the future, can be made by any decent mechanic as this car is about as simple as it gets and parts are quite available.

Other than that, the other areas of concern are minor and include the following. One side of the engine cover and the wheels need some paint work along with some other very minor spots. The roof has a scuff on it, but it does not leak. The rubber stripping between the door and the body need to be replaced.

The suspension, steering, brakes, and the classic horn are all good. The electrical system was checked and tweaked . There may be a few new wires or plugs and such installed. The nickel “chrome” on the front bumper is fantastic and the back bumper is a little pitted, but in great shape. There is hardly, if at all, any rust in the wheel wells and there are no signs of rodents. Like the front, the rear windows have handles that operate them and the seats and floor are in very excellent condition. One may start it with a hand crank or with a starter motor like most vehicles.

To tell you the truth, I don’t know why the odometer is so low. Perhaps my father rolled it back when he obtained it. I do not believe it has been in an accident. Looking down the sides, all looks straight.

It has some nice extra accessories that my father installed. These include the front grill, the license plate holder, the pheasant hood ornament, the knob on the stick shift, the step plates, the spare wheel cover, and the rear luggage rack. There is also an original luggage rack folded down on the side of the driver’s running board. There are many repair books, references, parts catalogs, and extra parts included.

Personal meetings only. If you wish to purchase it, we will go to your bank’s nearest branch together to finish the deal. I am a real, honest person. I work at Northern State University in Aberdeen, SD. My name is Frederic "Fritz" J.B. Hemke. To assure you I am real, you can check me out on the internet, call the University to verify my employment, call me 605-216-0881, or email me at [email protected] My father had a similar name and he was a great educator and saxophonist. You will probably find more information on him. In is my best interest to sell the vehicle and not scam anyone and subsequently lose my job.

We drove this nice vehicle around town now and then for errands, parades, and fun. We have a clear title. Thanks for checking this great classic out. Show some interest and it can be yours!!
