1954 manhattan

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired a 1954 manhattan 4 dr. It is a nice pretty unspoiled original car as far as I can tell. The car has a couple unique features I am trying to authenticate:

- what appears to be original green plaid plastic seat covers. (I base this assumption on the excellent fit and fact it was listed as a dealer option in this style). Should they actually be original I am truly amazed at the condition. Might these indeed be original.

- air conditioning under front dash AND in trunk a second evaporator serving vents in the rear deck. Kaiser script.

-wire wheels with knock off style hubcaps. (Appear to be a correct, not Chrysler style) but I don't see wires as factory option. But could again have been ordered at dealer or an early owner swap out. These are painted in green matching the green on the top, signal green I think I saw it
