From the Burlini collection. One of the most desirable cars from
the 50s era because of its striking good looks. The Century was the
performance model. It had the smaller Special body with the bigger
Roadmaster engine. This one is exceptionally beautiful. The
stunning black and red colors that are broken up with that sweeping
spear doesn't get much better. Gorgeous set of Kelsey Hayes wire
wheels on radial whitewall tires. Rich black German cloth top.
Interior is upholstered in leather using the same stunning colors.
The total restoration is excellent. Paint has glass finish. Chrome
is brilliant. Excellent glass, rubber, trim etc. Interior is mint
from door panels to dash. Trunk is carpeted to match interior.
Motor compartment is cleaned and painted. Underside is rock solid
original metal. Treat yourself to something really great!
Radial white walls
