Creepy Ride. — body to chassis mounts were going bad and ride felt like meat on a piece of white bread. could to 85 easy but distrusted the 35 year old moving parts on the front end and the body mounts. One could have done an off frame resoration and still end up with a second rate ride. Windows would howl and needed new rubber. Killer pushbutton TUBE am radio!

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

Pros: '61 stylin' all the way, sleek, neat archetectural featured knobs and glovebox, chromey interior skippy delightful center hub on the steering wheel goin back back almost to the firewall.

Cons: cost $2500 to be fitted with hardened valve seats to be able to burn regularr, tranny was weak-
