Improving throughout the beginning of the turn the century until they closed their doors in 1958. The 50a??s era Clipper has that iconic bubble style that people fell instantly fell in love with. Powering this beauty down the road is its original 289 CiD V8 that runs strong & healthy throughout the power band and sounds great out of the dual SS exhaust.
