For Sale: 1954 Kaiser Manhattan in Cadillac, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1954 KAISER MANHATTAN. THE 1954 KAISER MANHATTAN HAD A VERY LIMITED PRODUCTION AND AS YOU CAN SEE WAS VERY SPECIAL. IT IS BELIEVED THERE ARE NOT MANY LEFT AND ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION. THIS CAR IS ABSOLUTLY TURNKEY AND READY TO DRIVE AND SHOW. IT HAS BEEN UPDATED, WITH A 283CI ENGINE OUT OF I BELIEVE A 68 CAMARO. THE CAR STARTS RIGHT UP AND SOUNDS GREAT. THE ENGINE DOES NOT HAVE ANY UNUSUAL NOISES AND DOES NOT BLOW ANY SMOKE. ITS PLENTY OF POWER TO MOVE THIS CAR ALONG. I FREQUENTLY CHECK FOR LEAKS AND THERE ARE NONE. THE TRANS HAS ALSO BEEN UPDATED TO A POWER GLIDE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSSION. THE VALVE BODY IS REVERSED SO PARK AND REVERSE ARE IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS. NOT SURE OF IT'S PURPOSE BUT THAT IS WHAT IT IS. AS YOU CAN SEE THE GEAR SELECT WAS MOVED TO THE FLOOR AS WELL. THE CAR GOES INTO ALL THE GEARS WITH EASE AND THE TRANSMISSION DOES NOT HAVE ANY ISSUES. THE BRAKES ARE HIGH AND WORK WELL BUT THEY ARE DRUM SO THEY DO NOT STOP THE CAR ON A DIME. THERE ARE NO SUSPENSION ISSUES AS THE CAR TRACKS STRAGHT AND THERE ARE NO OLD CAR NOISES. ALL THE LITES WORK ON THE CAR, EVEN THE DASH LITES AND TURN SIGNALS. THE EXHAUST IS STAINLEES AND THERE ARE NO ISSUES EITHER. THE EXTERIOR IS MAGNIFICENT. IT WAS REPAINTED A COUPLE YEARS AGO IN LACQUER. THE PAINT IS SUPER SHINY AND SHOWS ALOT OF DEPTH. THIS CAR IS NOT A BONDO QUEEN, AS THE SIDES ARE VERY STRAIGHT AND SHOW NO SIGNS OF RIPPLES. ALTHOUGH I WOULD SUSPECT THERE IS SOME BODO USED IN ITS RESTORATION; I CAN ASSURE YOU ITS MINOR. I HAVE PROVIDED PICTURES OF THE SIDES CLOSE UP SO YOU CAN SEE FOR YOURSELF. THERE IS SOME MINOR CHIPPING FROM USE, BUT REALLY MINOR. AS YOU ARE AWARE THERE IS A EXTREME AMOUNT OF CHROME ON THIS MODEL. I AM HAPPY TO SAY ITS ALL THERE, AND WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE FRONT BUMPER I WOULD SAY ITS ALL IN EXCELLENT CONDITION; MAYBE BETTER THEN EXCELLENT. THE FRONT BUMPER IS IN FAIR CONDITION. I BELIEVE THE REAR BUMPER HAS BEEN REPLATED AND IS EXCELLENT.
