The Super used a silky smooth 248 cubic inch straight-eight engine with overhead valves, one of the more advanced engines of the period. With 125 horsepower and linked to a 3-speed manual instead of a sluggish Dynaflow, performance is bright with a great eight-cylinder sound from the single exhaust system. It still offers the original 2-barrel carburetor and oil-bath air cleaner, along with correct turquoise engine paint that looks fairly fresh. Someone has invested in some work under the hood, that’s obvious. Underneath, it’s solid and original, with the torque tube suspension offering a smooth ride that’s unlike anything on the road today. Big H78-15 whitewalls on red steel wheels look period perfect and add some flash.
