Nice Car At The Time, Not Too Costly To Run — The young people of that era seemed to like this vehicle, I only got mine in 1965 as a project for rebuild. The top speed was in line with it's handling which was average for a 1947 vehicle. I enjoyed owning it for 2 years

Pros: Was quite comfortable, leather interior, easy to work on - lots of space in engine compartment

Cons: Underpowered, road-holding was not too good
