The Chrysler Fluid Drive transmission makes this car a pleasure to drive.

Well here it is. She starts the first push of the button every single time without fail! There is no rust anywhere, and no signs of previous rust repair or body or frame damage. Yes this car is truly as nice as it appears in the photos. The paint job on this car is like a sheet of liquid glass with a highly detailed engine compartment and undercarriage. The chrome work is flawless and this car needs absolutely nothing, just drive and enjoy! Even all the window frames have been re-chromed and new glass and weatherstrip installed. Everything fits and seals perfectly. The top is new as well as the new glass and chrome surround for the convertible top. Both doors close with the push of a single finger! Gaps all the way around are also excellent, and that includes the hood as well.

This car has 'Best of Show" written all over it. On August 4, 2019 the car won the People's Choice Award at the Milwaukee Concours.

The car comes with it original factory jack and custom carrying bag, as well as the convertible top tonneau cover. Yes, all the gauges work; even the gas gauge. As well as the lights, directionals and roadlamps.

She runs as cool as a cucumber with the help of the largest radiator I have ever seen on any car [3 ft wide and brand new]. I have owned 129 classic cars, and this ranks near the top of my favorites to drive. The chrome work alone was over $45000. There are absolutely no disappointments here. You will never find a nicer one, I guarantee it. My driver will deliver to wherever you live in the lower 48.
