This is the car that I, my father, and my son toured in earlier this week, driving a total of 160 miles on a beautiful but slightly sunny Michigan day. We left our town and headed northeast for Bad Axe, Michigan. I haven’t been in that nice little town for many years, it’s just as charming as it was in those days.
The transmission is a Power Glide transmission that has two gears, the engine simply winds up the faster you go. I find this transmission to be just like the modern CVT transmission used in many foreign cars in this country today. Honestly, I don’t care for the VRT one lick.
The engine is a very simple in-line V-6 powerplant of which I don’t know how much horsepower it produces. The carburetor is a simple one-barrel carb. The car drives very well, but in my opinion, rides damn near as well as a Cadillac does these days, very impressive!
