Description

Lot #5013 - 345/345hp HEMI OHV V8 engine, 3-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission, torsion bar independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs and 4-wheel power drum brakes. This example is finished in black with a gold sweep, a black top and the correct type complementary Adventurer interior. Options found on this top-of-the-line Adventurer include an AM radio with dual antennas, a dash clock, a gray padded dash, power windows, a power front seat, power brakes and a gold boot. At the time of the restoration, the engine, transmission, brakes and front end were fully rebuilt. Since then, it has accrued only 1,100 miles, which has allowed for the outstanding level of preservation. The engine bay presents very nicely with correct components and an excellent finish on such items as the inner fender wells, the air cleaners and the radiator tank.
