Description

Swinging open the long sleek door and we are met with a black covered door panel that has a mix of smooth leather on top and a horizontal cut in of tuck and roll leather on the lower section. This beautiful leather plays out on the seats with clean tuck and roll uppers and lowers on the front split bench and a back seat bench just like the front only add on some big arms, and we have room for 6. Black carpet floods the floors, and up front above this carpet floats the dash with its dark gray dash top, and mostly chrome ribbed dash front and instrument surrounds. We note the signatures of world renowned car customizers Darryl Starbird and Gene Winfield on top of the dash. These are all clean and looking great and are fronted by the original steering wheel, fashioned out of black bakelite with a round chrome horn rim just inside the bakelite. A black headliner also in supple leather is above.
Taking a peek under the hood, and we see a nicely restored engine block painted green presenting as a 255ci V8 that has been bored .030 over and has had an Isky camshaft installed within. During the rebuild the heads were shaved and sitting atop is a silver intake manifold and dual Stromberg 2bbl carburetors. The carbs were recently rebuilt using genuine Stromberg parts. A 3-speed manual transmission is on and sends power back to a rear axle weighing in at 3.54. A big shout out to the twin chrome coolant pipes, generator, and air cleaner horn assemblies.
