Description

Commander Cody was right with the car's sleek lines which can make the lines on the highway look like dots. Ultra large steel panels which are very straight and minding their gaps very nicely despite their massive size, adorn this car. The Dark Ivy Green Metallic paint remains nice and shiny but is not without a few scratches, scrapes and dings. Upfront we have the BIG grille flanked by dual headlights and a massive lower bumper which wraps around the front quarter. Simply draw a straight line from this quarter to the rear, and it will only be interrupted by the dual doors one of them suicide which share the chopped off “B” pillar. Dual bands of chrome trim run atop the quarters and sills, and also a lower trim widens out and adorns the rockers. A long long hood moves its way rearward and meets up with the trimmed windshield. An overly large trunk houses the top when it is down, and you will have people paying to watch it go up and down all with the flick of a switch. The top is in white canvas and the rear window is clear plastic and both were replaced along with the mechanicals during the restoration. Bringing up the rear are the corner mounted horizontal ribbed taillights and yet another massive shiny pristine bumper. Steel wheels are on with standard fare Lincoln wheel covers and thin whites are appropriately mounted to all 4 corners. You my friend have arrived…in style with this big skate.
A big 430ci V8 backed by an automatic transmission provides plenty of power to float this boat down the road at full sail and then some. It is topped with a 4bbl carburetor and is capable of making 320hp. Attached to the back is a Twin Range Multi-Drive 3-speed automatic transmission that reliably sends power back to a 3.25 geared Ford 9" axle.
