Seller Note
Gateway Classic Cars Houston is pleased to offer this sweet 1953 Kaiser Manhattan sedan for sale. The Kaiser-Frazer Corporation began in 1945, when it was formed as a joint venture between Henry J. Kaiser and Joseph W. Frazer. Their first vehicles rolled off the line in Willow Run Michigan in less than a year after the company was formed. Initially, production numbers were good, but Kaiser-Frazer struggled to keep up with the larger, more established auto manufacturers. This shiny crème over green Kaiser Manhattan is in what appears to be its original paint color scheme. The interior is also very original in appearance, and features the optional "Bambu" treatment, with dash trim and other trim areas sporting the bamboo-like surface treatment. This Manhattan features what appears to be its original drivetrain, consisting of a 226 CID flathead 6-cylinder engine and a GM Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. Inside, the interior looks original, with the two-tone exterior color scheme carried over. "Bambu" vinyl-trimmed bench seats have cloth inserts, and still have plenty of life left. An extra oil pressure gauge has been added under the dash. This Kaiser Manhattan is riding on a set of period correct BF Goodrich Silvertown wide white sidewall tires, size 7.00-15. The chrome trim and hubcaps add to the panache of the car. Don't miss out on your chance to grab a rare piece of history!
