Powered by the original HEMI 331cid engine with a 2-barrel carburetor and 6-volt charging system. Also has Simplimatic automatic transmission - just push in the clutch, select your gear, release the clutch and the tranny does the rest. This 46,756 actual mile ex-Royal Canadian Mounted Police Chief's car from Summerland, British Columbia, received a complete $140,000 restoration. Where possible, original parts were retained and restored. All other parts were replaced as accurately as possible.
