Description

A very comfortable camel leather bench seat reaches out from door panel to door panel which presents nicely and are wrapped in camel as well. These panels are decorated with chrome cranks and handles and highlight the woodgrain finished steel window surrounds above. The simple woodgrain pattern follows to the painted metal dash and is adorned with plenty of Art Deco styled chrome accents, and clean gauges. The styling reminds this writer of a chromed version of an old Wurlitzer jukebox. A very nice brown steering column reaches out from under the dash and has a beautiful banjo style chrome and cream bakelite steering wheel atop said column. A divider can be raised from the back of the front seat to keep the rear seat occupants' conversations private from their chauffeur's prying ears. The rear bench in matching camel leather affords plenty of legroom, and sports individual back cushions with a fold down center armrest and as an added bonus, 2 seats can be lifted and unfolded from the rear of the front seat and floor. A tight vinyl headliner in more camel coloring covers the expansive roof and very clean carpet is noted below.
346ci of flathead power in a V8 formatted engine, rated at 140 horsepower, sits comfortably under the massively long hood. A three-speed selective synchromesh manual transmission puts power to the back wheels. A Hotchkiss semi-floating rear weighing in with a 4.31 ratio is on to whisk you down the road.
