As you can see by the pictures, the engine is super clean. It starts right up, and feels strong, like a new car.
I purchased the car from California, where it appears to have been babied for most of its life - I was told it came from the Art Astor car collection. I see no evidence of rust of any sort, or body work.
There are few 1950's cars in this sort of amazing condition. It's an incredible joy.
