1954 Kaiser Manhattan--SOLD (Illinois) - $0

1954 Kaiser Manhattan sedan for sale or trade. Outstanding one-year only design, this car was the beginning of the end for Kaiser. The '54 styling was bold and motorists loved it or hated it. Unfortunately the factory Kaiser Manhattan's were underpowered with a 6 cylinder engine and even an afterthought McCullough supercharger couldn't provide much power for the car. This example was upgraded with an Oldsmobile V8 engine under the hood in the mid-1950s--the original receipt for purchase of this engine is included. The remainder of the car is stock original. The interior featuring the unique textured dragon fabric is in very good condition and the seats have been preserved with period plastic seat covers. Padded dash and textured headliner. (A few leftover '54s were remarketed as '55 Manhattans. Kaiser sold the Manhattan design and manufacturing equipment to Argentina's dictator Juan Peron, who used this to launch a domestic automobile enterprise--the Kaiser Carabela was sold virtually unchanged in South America through 1962).
