Details Specification Condition Report

In recent years this car has formed part of a large collection and as such has received little or no use and an element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again. Your inspection pre-sale is welcomed and encouraged to appreciate the potential of this rarely offered motor car which is strictly sold as seen.

  • The Harley Earl-penned Streamliners were notable for their pronounced fastback styling and massive multi-blade chrome grille and wraparound bumpers
  • Powered by a 249ci (3.9-litre) straight-eight engine that drives through a three-speed manual gearbox
  • We understand that the car was subject to a major restoration around 2010 which included: a repaint; replacement overhauled engine and transmission; new exhaust system and dashboard; and extensive re-chroming
  • Restored by Rick Shoesmith who received a gold award from the Antique Automobile Club of America for the quality of the restoration he carried out on the car (certificate in history file)

NB. Our vendor does not have a V5 for this vehicle and it doesn't appear to have been UK registered. Potential buyers will need to take this into consideration.
