The first car in my "50s Sporty Cars" collection and the first car I bought with full risk. This is one of the pictures from the sellers ad. A couple of phone calls later, I bought the car. Luck was on my side, the car arrived as expected and was driven a few years just for fun without lots of investment. But it was clear right from the beginning that, at one point of time, the car would undergo a Concours restoration.
Specs of this car: 4800 ccm, 8 Cylinder, 198 hp (SAE), two speed automatic, power steering, adjustable seatbench (electric!), power windows, heater, engine dress up kit. For 1955, this was a real luxury car!
