This 1938 convertible is one of the less than a dozen that are known to exist, which now features a high performance motor, automatic transmission, power four disc brakes, power rack and pinion steering, air conditioning, a luxury upholstered two tone leather interior, power windows, fully adjustable air bag suspension, and a sophisticated state of the art multi speaker IPod stereo system.
