This car rolls on Michelin radials, size 155R400, at all four corners. Each radial surrounds a gray, vented steel wheels with chrome center caps. The engine bay is extremely tidy, the cars bumpers fit tightly to the body and the rear spare tire and wheel matches the other four.Under the vee-shaped hood is a 1.2L flathead four-cylinder engine supplied by Ford backed by a four-speed manual transmission.Inside, the cars burgundy leather bucket seats are in great shape, while the contrasting black carpet also looks vibrant. The four-spoke, banjo-style steering wheel is in excellent order. The inner door panels topped with matching trim look great and the instrument panel, with its warm stretch of burled wood and complete set of gauges, looks fantastic. This vehicle is a radio delete model.The Series II, now the 4/4 rather than the 4-4, was introduced in 1955 with only 386 built by October 1960.
