An extremely original engine compartment. I have the oil bath style air cleaner, though run this tiny Pep Boys air cleaner as a general rule - to be more tidy. If you bathed in oil, you would be dirty too. The windshield wipers are powered by the vacuum of the engine, the charging is via generator and the battery is 6 volt. Everything works as intended. The previous owner extolled the rebuilt engine and I do not believe he was lying. The compression is high and it runs like a champ. Surprisingly spritely for a 235 6 cylinder. Never overheats and I drove it over the Rockies three times.
