Description

"The Kaiser-Frazer Corporation was the result of a partnership between automobile executive Joseph W. Frazer and industrialist Henry J. Kaiser. In 1947, the company acquired the automotive assets of Graham-Paige, of which Frazer had become president near the end of World War II. Kaiser-Frazer was the only new US automaker to achieve success after World War II, if only for a few years. Joseph W. Frazer left the company in 1949, replaced as president by Henry's son Edgar F. Kaiser.Registered new in 1951 this Kaiser-Fraser Deluxe Custom Coupé is an extremely rare car; the Kaiser Club believe it is one of just 18 Custom Coupés still in existence and it is finished in its original colour of Cape Verde Green with a contrasting cream and green custom made interior. Powered by a 3.8 litre V6 engine mated to a three-speed automatic gearbox the vendor reports that the Kaiser runs and drives very well. The interior presents beautifully and the coachwork retains a deep shine and is complemented by the Coker style white wall wheels and tyres that offer two options of finish, wire or spinner. This Kaiser is a very interesting motorcar that is in very good order throughout and comes complete with a valid MoT test certificate, and the original sales literature and its UK Registration document. This very unique and rare car is a head turner wherever it goes, and we believe it is offered at a very attractive estimate."
