  1. One of the FIRST front-wheel drive cars!!
    Nice on the Hi-way, good top speed too!

    1. Yep, but, a little hard on your pocket for city driving! (Huge gas tank,,,11-14mpg,,,,and that’s on the highway)

    1. We had one when I was growing up. My dad bought a brand new 66, white with turquoise interior. I sure like to find another!

  2. Also, I remember it was extremely roomy, & didn’t have that “hump” in the floor! (Front wheel Dr. had no drive shaft) ,,,so the floor was flat! It made sense-but it was odd looking!
