This is one of the 80,338 that were produced in 1955,and was 20,148 one that came off the assembly line in Flint Michigan. The Original owner was Philip D. Armour 3rd who was the Grandson of the Founder of the famed meat packing company Armour Meats. The car was purchased into my family in the late 70’s. The car was re-painted in the late 80’s with many layers of Black lacquer. Slip covers were put over the original Red and gray Interior. At the time of production this car had all the latest features and options –236 HP V8-Dynaflow automatic transmission-power windows, brakes, steering, selectronic radio along with an electric antenna and cigarette lighter and lastly the clock. It currently gas 41,419 miles on the car.
The car is very strong and starts very reliability. This is a perfect restoration vehicle for the 1950 enthusiast. I am selling this car because I need the garage space and need to declutter.
