  1. Kind of fun to sit outside of the little tavern at the fork in the road and have a beer, choke on exhaust and dust fumes, like it was 1925.

    I havent been in about 3 years. I went as a guest in my stepfather's just restored Model T at the time. This time he is entering his just restored Model A Cabrolet. I missed the timeframe for riding in as a guest but still coming, maybe meet some people on the forum. Maybe some day I'll have a 20's dirt track racer that I can enter.

  2. Parts availability will be the difficult thing on fixing this car, not as popular as a Chevy or Buick, Kanter may have alot of stuff. Rebuilding the major components is the way to go, but not as bad I'm sure compared to fixing up a 55 Hudson Wasp. Never fails to be a few returns until the correct part is obtained, or a failed promise of delivery from someone with the last known hoarding of NOS that doesnt answer their phone or reply to email messages. Just part of the game. Could be the first Hydramatic version before the design was ironed out.

    Lucky for the seller that it's a desirable body style, the funky green would be attractive to someone that wants a hip car to drive to beach parties, and the interior looks decent, that it could be cleaned to be acceptable.

    Reality pricing will set in at some point, or someone will arrive with a trailer in tow and 30 freshly minted Benjis and the flipster will be happy to see green in another form.

  3. A little more reserved in styling than the 59 Dodge Coronet posted here that is about the same vintage. I can imagine the little slanty would be growling while pushing this beast, I can hear the infamous tappets in the back of my head. Looks like an early version of the cupped web shape of the 70s Plymouth Fury steering wheel. 

  4. Pretty neat car. Seeing the plugs were removed is a little unsettling though. For how long were they left out, was someone making an attempt to free up the engine at some time? How would the Hydramatic age with such a long period of nonuse? It would be neat to see it cleaned up and roadworthy. The price for doing so would be hard to guess, could be with odds in favor, $3,000.00, but running similar cars of this vintage have come up for sale at about the same asking price with less unknowns.
