Back When You Got A Body Change Most Every Year And Could Not Wait! — What an elegant looking vehicle. My dad bought her in 1960 and had the cleanest car at the Eagle pencil plant in Danbury, CT., as I loved to detail her as a 12 year old car fanatic. Silver w/ grey interior with real chrome accents.I would sit on my dad's lap to steer whereve we went. Powerful, well her 401 V8 could not beat my friends 57 Chevy convertible off the line and he had a staight six! I miss her and my Dad to this day.

Owner for 7 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:10,000

Pros: Elegent trim details alongside rear quarter/Real chrome on dash!/Sumptous carpeting/Sooth ride/Leg room galore in back seat/Great cruiser/ Smoothe trouble free transmission with "Grade"mode.

Cons: 401 V8 rebuilt twice as pistons had detonation signs even though my dad always used Sunoco 260, the top premium fuelin the 60's/Horn rim split off/ rear chrome bumper fade/ Center of hood not secured well/ Had to replace air ride with stock springs/ 10mpg on trip.

An Excellent Full-size Car, Wish They Would Put Back Into Production. By Will

Performance: The engine is powerful, and responsive, even after 225,000 + miles on it. The ABS Braking system is also very good, and will stop you very quickly. It is not the best around corners, but ... Read More
