    THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN PART OF OUR COLLECTION FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. THE PAINT IS IN OVERALL GOOD CONDITION AND SOME OF THE MORE EXPENSIVE PIECES OF CHROME HAVE BEEN RE-CHROMED. IT RUNS GREAT, HOLDS 30 POUNDS OF OIL PRESSURE AT IDLE AND HAS HAD CARBURETOR AND BRAKE WORK. THIS BEING SAID, WE MUST ALSO CONFESS THAT OUR LITTLE CAR HAS BEEN DRIVEN VERY SPARINGLY IN THE LAST6 YEARS.. FOR THIS REASON WE WOULD PREFER TO DESCRIBE ITS OVERALL CONDITION AS UN-RESTORED. NEW PARTS INCLUDE A NEW CARB KIT (INSTALLED 6 YEARS AGO), A NEW MASTER CYLINDER AND A BRAND NEW RECENT 6 VOLT BATTERY.. IT IS A NUMBERS MATCHING AUTOMOBILE.. THIS HAS THE ORIGINAL 303 CUBIC INCH V-8 ENGINE AND AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION AS OPPOSED TO OTHER OFFERINGS WE HAVE SEEN ON THE WEB.. MANY OF THESE HAVE THE EASILY INSTALLED DROP-IN 350 V-8. OUR COUPE ALSO RETAINS MANY OF THE PARTS THAT ARE INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN, SUCH AS THE ORIGINAL (SIDE DRAFT) ROCHESTER CARBURETOR AND TWIN PORT AIR CLEANER.

    The 303 was available from 1949 through 1953. In 1949 through 1951 the 2-barrel carburetor 303 produced 135hp and 253lb⋅f, over 33% more power than the extremely popular and widely produced 100hp 1949 Ford Flathead V8. 1952 88 and Super 88 V8s used a 4-barrel carburetor for 160hp and 265lb⋅ft, while 4-barrel 1953 versions upped the compression from 7.5:1 to 8.0:1 for 165hp and 275lb⋅ft.

    ===OUR 'ROCKET' RETAINS ALL OF THE PARTS THAT ARE SOMETIMES HARD TO FIND===

    1. ORIGINAL AIR CLEANER

    2. ORIGINAL ROCHESTER CARB PLUS AN EXTRAUSED CORE.

    FRONT FLOOR BOARD NEEDS MINOR RUST REPAIR ! !
