Exceptional Classic — Great looking 50s classic, reliable, super flat head engine with all the bolt on stuff. Repainted, nosed & decked, reupholstered to original. Acceleration is moderate for the year it was built, braking is OK & it handles & rides smoothly on the highway, but on the twisty roads its not like a Porsche or other sports car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Best looker of the 50s

Cons: Not the greatest mileage
