    Interior is original and needs some work. Hopefully, this spring, I going to get the doors and headliner done. Has a 1950 flathead 6 engine and 3 speed floor shift. No back seat. Spare tire is behind passenger side of seat and shelves for tools is behind drivers side.

    Going to keep it pretty much like original. Only things not original are the 1950 engine and tne exhaust. Muffler has been changed to a dual-out pipes. This was done before I bought it, but sounds real nice. Doesn't sound like a 6 cylinder. Paint has some chips and scratches and has 1 tennis ball sized dent in LF fender. Wife says she feels like she is in a Bogart movie when riding in it. He drove one in the movie "High Sierra". We even have a working, crank-up record player (78rpm) that we keep in the trunk for car shows and cruise-ins.

    You won't believe how many people tell me...."My dad/mother had one just like that" or "I learned to drive in one of those".
