Hard to say. It's a marvelous car, and it won't be my last, but since I lost the passion and joy of keeping it going it's probably better in someone else's hands. I'd still personally love to pull the engine and rebuild it myself, but given personal circumstances that's something I couldn't get to for probably the next year and the idea of ANY car sitting that long without being driven gives me pains lol

Thanks Man, I'd keep it and keep working on it but all the joy has gone out of it for me.

I'm also willing to accept trades. Particularly interested in 1958 models and the 1946-50's, though open to all.

Honestly there are just 2 major things keeping me from pressing on:

1. Inability/lack of knowledge to remove the engine from the car myself safely. If I could do that I'd dive right in and try to rebuild it myself. Heck it's just a machine.

2. The very real possibility of needing to move for work before summer.

Just wanna make sure it goes to a good home. I've already had someone tell me to just send it to a junk auction (wtf?!) and someone pleading poverty....not exactly the best place to start from when you gotta pour money into these to keep them going lol

I'll be sure to update the registry.

The ticking is typically caused by a worn oil pump, but this engine also has the olds pump conversion & new lifters and rods.

I believe the engine is worn, given the poor oil pressure at the front of the block. I was planning on rebuilding it but my heart is no longer in it.

I've decided it's time to part with my Patrician.

After hemming and hawing about it I've decided that it's definitely time to send my 1955 Patrician to its next owner.

The Good

1. 1 year old repaint. Beautiful job, removed all of the dents and dings.
2. Comes with a brand new exhaust system (not installed)
3. Original interior
4. Previously Owned by Fed & Dan Kanter
5. Pertronix ignition installed
6. Electric fuel pump as a backup installed as well
7. Operational torsion level
8. Ultramatic is is good working order
9. Optima battery included

The Bad

1. Engine will need to be rebuilt - it runs, but even with new lifters and rods its ticking.
2. Active oil leak at the oil filter outlet that I'm working to resolve.
3. Due to items 1 & 2 it should be trailered to you

Additional pictures available upon request.

Asking $9,000

Car is in the Salt Lake City area
