We purchased the car in January 2003 for $300.00. It did not run and was
filthy beyond belief. We rebuilt the carbs, tuned it up, and cleaned it.
It has been running like a top ever since -- it is my daily driver and
already has well over 1,000 miles (March). It had 33,000 original miles
and everything works! The car is almost completely stock. It has the
102 hp engine and Powerglide two speed automatic transmission (which had to
be resealed). It has some cool accessories like parking brake warning light
and chrome exhaust tip (very rare and not on during the photo shoot). I don't
really want to "restore" it as it has such a nice original patina to it now
that would be ruined with a restoration.
Update: August 2004. The car has been tinkered with. It has a Judson supercharger
complete with Marvel Mystery Oiler. It also has a clear (plexi-glass)
engine cover. The pictures do not do justice to the clear cover. With the Judson
the car has similar power to my Spyder except that it is limited at the top end by the powerglide
transmission. Pictures include some stock (before mods) and some after the Judson and
