Description

Lot #1258 - Just had a total frame-off restoration done to the highest standards. In 1956, all Adventurers were hardtops. After 1956, all Adventurer convertibles were Fireflite convertibles with Adventurer trim and options, like this car. It has power steering, brakes, seat, windows, Benrus steering wheel watch, 16 2/3 Highway Hi-Fi record player, Adventurer colors, scripts and most importantly the dual-quad 341cid HEMI engine which only came in the Adventurer in 1956.
