100 HP, 226 cid, L-Head Continental In-Line 6-Cylinder Engine, 3-Speed Transmission VIN: K481-040388 Despite being introduced as a brand new make of car in 1947, for 1948 Kaiser promoted over two dozen changes from their first models. However, many of these changes were rather minor and only the most curious of sleuths could pick them out. One major change from the earlier cars was a new head design that brought the compression ratio up to 7.3:1 from its original 6.8:1. Kaiser's designs were innovative with slab-side bodies totally devoid of fender lines, doors that encompassed the entire height of the body, and construction was some of the best in the industry. This Buckeye Maroon sedan was treated to a frame-on restoration a number of years ago. The interior fabrics were replicated in a modern velour done in burgundy with silver-gray fabric on the door panels. It is equipped with a factory installed "Air Conditioner", which for Kaiser meant heater-defroster rather than a cooling system. It appears this car was never equipped with a radio as the chrome plated blank-out plate is still in place. All of the original style plastic knobs and trim items have survived including the hard-to-find Kaiser-emblem door plates. This beauty is a little piece of American automotive history at your command.
