Pros and Cons.
The model was much affordable, had an upgraded Hemi power, was an upscale model, and with unique details. It was overshadowed by the Forward look models, not rare to find although its restoration cost could exceed its actual value. It had a crankcase of 5 quarts and a cooling system of 25 Quarts with a tank capacity of 20 gallons.
