This wonderful example, from the state of Georgia, has had a thorough restoration with much attention given to not only cosmetic items, but also mechanical components as well. The all-steel no-accident body was stripped down to bare metal and professionally refinished, wet sanded and polished to show-quality standards. To complement the outstanding paint finish, further attention was given to the chrome and stainless, as well as an outstanding refurbishing of the interior. Visually speaking, the car is stunning, but it does not stop there. The intent of the restoration was to achieve a product that performs as well as it looks and as a result, the original Flathead V8 was rebuilt, balanced and the heads were magnafluxed at the time. The transmission was also rebuilt as was the clutch, radio and speedometer, new shift linkage bushings, wiper motor, tires, exhaust, brakes, and much much more. This fabulous automobile runs and drives excellent.
