Beautiful Award-Winning Restoration

This beautiful, Virgil Exner-designed 2-door coupe is powered by a 295-horsepower, 354-cubic inch Poly V-8 with four-barrel carburetor and three-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission with pushbutton controls, providing plenty of oomph for modern-day driving. Power steering and brakes, a working factory AM radio, dual mirrors, and quad headlights are also included. Inside, one will find that all of the gauges are highlighted by red instrument binnacles and are in working order, and the original steering wheel is still present. The upholstery is in beautiful condition, and the headliner is finished with lovely chrome roof bows.

This Saratoga has also been fitted with period-correct BF Goodrich Silvertown wide whitewall four-ply tires on Chrysler wire wheels. In the trunk is the original spare, which has yet to be used. The consigner notes that a new dual exhaust has been fitted, as well as a new gas tank with fresh lines, and the brakes and suspension have been completely rebuilt. Most recently, a correct battery has been installed, along with such details as hoses and wiring, as per original.

This car has been shown very little since completion, making it a perfect candidate for the concours and show circuit. It did win a class award at the 2013 LaJolla Concours d'Elegance, and at the 2014 HASSIE All-Original Car Show in Spokane, Washington, it won a Best of Show award. If 50's-era Chryslers are your passion, this is one of the best.
