Description for Other Makes Kaiser-Frazer 1954

This 1954 Kaiser runs and drives, it has not been driven on the highway for any distance in the last couple years.
The engine is not the original but runs smooth and quiet without any noises or smoking, the transmission shifts good and the brakes and steering seem to work fine.
The engine is a Chevy 283 V8 with a Chevy Power-glide 2 Speed Automatic Transmission.
It does not have a current Pa. inspection so i would suggest the new buyer to trailer the car until it has had a safety inspection.
I am listing this for another party who has this car on consignment at a local dealer, i do not know alot about the history of the car, just what can be seen in the pictures.
The drivers window does not crank up the entire way and it is cracked. The frame and underside of the car looks to be very solid, there is some surface rust on the very bottom edge of the doors on the inside.
Please come and inspect this car before bidding if possible.
There is no warranty written, expressed or implied.
The buyer is responsible for all shipping costs and arrangements.
Please ask any questions you may have before bidding.
This Kaiser is located in zip code 15701 and can be seen by appointment.
-Kaiser-Frazer began manufacturing vehicles soon after WWII. Henry Kaiser was an industrialist with money and financing; George Frazer was an automotive executive with Packard. Together they leveraged the post war demand and the automobile manufacturing industry’s inability to rapidly re-enter commercial production by leasing a vacant plant from Ford and built over 100,000 cars in a year. Internal disputes, poor financials and fierce competition among the Big 3 would soon have an impact on Kaiser’s future as an automobile manufacturer. 1954 was the final year of production for the Kaiser, although a very small quantity of 1955 versions were marketed by dealers who had attached a 1955 hood ornament to their existing 1954 models on hand. This 1954 Kaiser Manhattan, one of 4,109 produced, retailed for $2,444 and was initially shipped as a supercharged engine.
