One of the most handsome cars of the fifties & highly collectible!

This is a really neat car that you just do not see much of any more.  They are pretty cars to cruise around in.  It has an older paint job with some average wear and tear and some minor flaws.  It is a smooth driving car and fires right up every time!  It had spent some time in storage in California before it was pulled out of it's slumber and refurbished for cruising duty.  The previous owner stated that the 255 Flathead V8 and automatic transmission were rebuilt 2000 miles ago.  It sure does run like it!  The front and rear bumpers were rechromed and the other bright work was either polished out or replaced.  The tan Hartz cloth top is power operated.  It has a clean and clear back window.  All of the gauges and lights appear to be in working order, even the rare GE front fog lamps.  The motor and trunk compartments show nicely.  The factory color of Yosemite Yellow (code 19) remains and is nicely complimented by a two tone matching interior.  The snap on boot to cover the top in the down position is super easy to install.  If you want something a little different for boulevard cruising in style, this is the car for you.  We can help with easy, affordable financing, cheap collector car insurance. and professional enclosed delivery.
