with 40 hp, 4 cylinder engine and three-speed transmission, could reach 55 mph. Retains "buggy spring suspension". The fuel system is gravity fed, by the tank that is mounted just above the engine in the windshield cowl. This car includes the first fuel gauge by Ford, which is operational. The 19" black spoke wheels, are wrapped with Goodyear wide whitewall tires, and backed by four-way mechanical drum brakes.
The interior's enhancements are a mix of brown/brown fabric on the seat, brown/black fabric on the seat back, and brown fabric on the inside trim of the roof. The steering wheel has been powder-coated black, and the instrument panel is polished. A beveled rear view mirror, dual side mirrors, and fold-out front windshield, round out the amenities for the driver.
On the exterior, the two-tone black and beige paint with subtle beige/black pinstriping, is in excellent condition and shines nicely. The dual functioning front headlamps, and rear signal/brake light function correctly. The rear mounted spare tire features a cover that matches the beige top all the way to the brown piping. The exterior is further embellished with a chrome mesh grille cover, the pheasant radiator cap, horn, auxiliary lights, and blue accents on the chrome bumpers.

From the Collection of a Gentleman.

Runs and drives great; many original parts.

All of the chrome is shiny; the rubber is good, and the vinyl rumble seat is in excellent condition; 6 volt electrical system; some "crazing" to the paint on
both rear fenders, the driver's side being the worst; some chipping to paint at the door jamb and locking mechanism; the fabric that trims the top and the door panels is losing integrity, and will need to be replaced; chip to driver's side door.

$14,000 - 18,000
