A previous owner replaced the original 2.5 liter inline six Daimler engine with a more modern Ford 4.0 liter inline six. The new power plant gives this car sufficient horsepower to enjoy it safely.
The current owner has spent over $12,000 recently to make it a reliable vehicle to enjoy including a new computer controlled automatic overdrive transmission.
