Vehicle story

Beautiful Woody convertible with Fluid Drive semi-automatic transmission (lessons included). Survivor with new paint, original wood, AM radio, and the original interior. Great fun taking advantage of San Diego''s beautiful sunny weather. Drop the top and drive PCH, Coronado, or Rancho Santa Fe. Top end is about 60 and it weighs 4,600 lbs, so it is not a performance car. But if you want to experience classic American driving, this car can't be beat. Safety belts for 3 in the back seat.

Pick-Up Instructions

I am willing to drive up to 50 miles to meet. Prior to rental I would like to review the features of the vehicle and take a short drive to make sure you are familiar with everything. The car has a semi automatic transmission and I will train you on it. It's a little tricky if you've never driven one before.

Reviews

Ben Barnik
Unlike anything I've ever driven. The '49 Chrysler gets an unreal amount of attention and even made the day for a few ol' timers we encountered. It does require a fair amount of skill to drive, but once you get the hang of it, it's one of the most unique transmissions you'll ever encounter. We did a beautiful drive up the coast for a birthday and it was a well worth experience. David is great at explaining the operations of the car and knows its entire history. Probably only 200 of these left in existence!
