Description

Swinging open the well-balanced front doors allows us to view a simple but elegant original broadcloth covered bench in lightly worn tan resting in a dark tan cloth covered bucket. A beautifully finished wood burl paint over the metal dash houses a speedometer, and a few controls, as well as a glovebox. In the center is a chrome speaker grille for the AM radio and below are cream bakelite knobs for the starter, courtesy lights, and cigar lighter to name a few. The original gray bakelite banjo style steering wheel fronts this dash and is in very good condition with only minor chipping of the finish at the 9'oclock position. This tan and painted wood pattern repeats itself on the nicely showing door panels with chrome cranks and actuators as well as padded armrests. Very clean chocolate brown carpeting covers the floors. Slipping into the rear passenger compartment we are greeted by yards of luxurious broadcloth on the tan and light brown rear bench seat. This seat is livened up by a fold down armrest and deep plush overstuffed cushions.
Lifting open the long steel hood reveals a 346ci V8 that was rebuilt in 2019 and has since been nicely preserved with a mix of very light patina and shiny parts. A 2bbl carburetor lurks underneath the oil bath air cleaner and bolted to the back of the mill is a 3-speed manual transmission. Putting that smooth Cadillac power to the pavement is a 4.58 geared rear axle.
