Recommended Posts

VIN 3-120009825  Engine # P20 92160 - Mileage 12,612 or 112,612


 This vehicle was purchased by the current owner about 1 year ago as a Covid Project.  The vehicle had been sitting indoors for 20 years and was not running.  The vehicle had an engine issue which required new pistons, rings and rod bearings.  Multiple minor issues were addressed from the time it was sitting, but no other major issues were found.  The overdrive was installed on the transmission but needed relays and a cable.  The vehicle still retains the 6 volt electrical system, and all the gages function.  It was recently driven round trip from Rhode Island to Syracuse, NY with no issues. 


The engine is a 1950 Flat Head 230 CID 6 cylinder with a single 1 barrel carburetor.  Split exhaust headers run to a dual exhaust system.  The engine starts and runs well.  The engine and compartment are nicely detailed with a factory air cleaner.  The transmission is a 3 speed manual column shift with overdrive, so it travels nicely at highway speeds. 


The chassis is in very good condition.  There is no rust on the frame and undercarriage and suspension components.  Floor pans are all very solid.  The wheels are aftermarket chrome with BF Goodrich radial tires size 205/60 R15 front and 215/75 R15 rear..  4 wheel drum brakes have been serviced and are in good working order. New shocks are installed. 


The interior upholstery is in like new condition made from factory similar material as is the headliner.  Door panels are vinyl and floors are carpeted.  The wood grain is lightly faded on the dash but the gages and chrome are all excellent.  Chrome handles, knobs, Steering Wheel and trim are all very good.  A heater, signal lights, a push button factory AM radio and Clock are also installed. 


The Pink exterior paint is fair to good, with flaws, scratches and some small bubble rust spots.  Jams and doors show the original dark green color, and body filler can be detected in the rear.  The car is a visual 20 footer.  This club coupe has deluxe features including excellent chrome trim around all the glass, and very nice stainless body side molding. Front grill, both bumpers and hood ornaments are all very good to excellent.   All the lights and lenses including backup light and third brake light are excellent.


A 12 volt battery is remotely mounted in the trunk that powers the AM/FM/Bluetooth radio with 4 speaker system.  In addition this battery powers a pair of lighted fuzzy dice, an under hood siren, and 4 neon under body lights. 


Although virtually all original, this was designed to be an old school hot rod.  This is a very nice driver.  The body and paint issues are the only negative, otherwise all systems operate well.  The pink seem to attract a lot of attention at car shows, and it is fun to drive.  The Overdrive will allow highway speeds to around 70 MPH.
