Lot #7000 - This car has spent most of its life in Southern California and has always been a rust-free and solid car. All original sheet metal, including floors. Laser-straight body with excellent gaps throughout. Painted years ago with real black lacquer paint and still looks like it was painted yesterday - a testament to the amazing survivor status of this car. Interior refinished to original specifications. Wood-grained garnish mouldings. Hydraulic brakes expertly tuned. Upgraded with modern springs for a true hot rod stance and better drivability. Tube shocks added in the rear. Correct cloth-bound wiring was replaced. Upgraded to 12 volts for ease of use and reliability. Flathead engine rebuilt to 3/4-race specifications utilizing a 4.0" stroke Mercury crank, Offenhauser aluminum heads and 3-deuce intake. Electronic ignition for added spark. Rebuilt radio with modern components. Still retains rear original jumper seats. Great driving car with good power for a Flathead mill.
