Lot #645 - This Town & Country Newport features a 324/135hp Inline 8-cylinder engine with a 3-speed fluid-drive transmission with synchromesh gears, independent coil-spring front suspension, solid axle rear suspension with hydraulic shocks and leaf springs, and 4-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. It has a 127.5 wheelbase and was purchased from the personal collection of Jim Rogers. A one-year-only design, this is one of 698 built. Semi-restored, it has 65,300 original miles (the title reads mileage exempt), and is, except for a few quality refinishes, exactly the same car built by the factory in 1950. This fine example features original wood panels and original engine. The paint shows very well, the interior is in excellent like-new condition, it drives smooth and the engine purrs like a kitten. The car remains in excellent condition.
