The 241 cubic inch inline flat head 6 cylinder purrs only the way a flat head can with torque and reliability to match. The fluid drive transmission shifts the way it should and handles the flat head with ease. The trunk is accessible from behind the front seat via a hidden door. The trunk itself is gigantic as clearly defined by the size of the trunk lid. The blue exterior shines nicely and compliments the 2-tone blue and ivory interior.
