At the Auction

This car features the 324 c.i. ‘Rocket V8’ engine with Hydramatic, power steering, power brakes, power windows,
power seats and a padded dash. It needs a new gas tank and battery before it can be started. The motor looks solid and clean after sitting up for several years. Original paint was pale green and white, but many years ago someone changed the color to a two-tone green. Most of the interior parts are in the trunk. The trunk pan is solid except for one area close to the driver’s side wheel well and a small strip along the rear section. Also small areas rusted through on the rear portion of the front fenders and small area on the front section of the rear quarters. It has the rear exhaust deflectors still on it. Extra parts are in the trunk. Chrome is in good shape with surface rust. The windshield and back glass are tinted and are in good shape with only a minor crack on the driver’s side window. The interior is white leather with original green cloth inserts.
