You want to put excitement in your driving...try this 389 c.i. tri-power with manual four on the floor! This is a real sleeper..an auction car at Zephyrhills. A/C makes it practical year round, Note the rear facing third seat, a common practice at the time. It helped eliminate the problem of getting past the second seat to get to the back, but was a trade off in that it required you to board via the tailgate. Used most likely by small children or pets...makes you wonder about the safety of that arrangement!
1951 Buick Super 4 Door Sedan Gray
A very deluxe sedan...notice the carpets, the Dynaflow transmission, the
chome laden, symmetrical dash! Nothing too fancy in the interior, but
everything is of understated, quality materials. The motive power is of
course the overhead valve straight eight. You could always tell a Buick by
its Exhaust note! There was little
difference between the 51 and 52 Buick...slight trim differences.
1934 Chrysler Convertible Coupe Blu
A beautiful car...it evidently sold at auction, price unknown. Nice two
tone color combination, rumble seat...and the grille is so indicative of a
premium car! Chrysler certainly made some stylish, beautiful cars!
1963 Chrysler New Yorker Salon Edition 4 door Hardtop Beige
All the deluxe features that Chrysler could load into a car, including
cruise control and air conditioning. The salon edition probably included
that three quarter vinyl top plus all those goodies. Lots of chrome and
stainless trim! Only 593 were built, and the price was an expensive $5860.
Chrysler was really establishing a level of luxury with this model!
1950 Crosley Hot Shot Wht
This was Powell Crosley's idea of a sporty car! This guy was ahead of his
time..probably noticed how British sports cars had a fledgling fan base
here in the U.S. He decided this little car could compete...it had disc
brakes, but there were problems with rust, and they were replaced with drum
brakes. The little four had stamina...and after Crosley stopped producing
cars, it was used as a compressor for commercial refrigeration systems.
Crosley produced refrigerators for the home, radios and was into
broadcasting. An interesting guy!
