"craftsmenship" "handcrafted" "craftsmen" "handcrafts": code words for "poorly built"

Seems to be the same engine as an Austin Cambridge. Being lighter, the Shamrock would perform better than this but still...

"A de luxe A55 with manumatic transmission was tested by The Motor magazine in 1957 had a top speed of 77.1 mph (124.1 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 27.0 seconds. A fuel consumption of 31.6 miles per imperial gallon (8.9 L/100 km; 26.3 mpg-US) was recorded."

Is nice looking though, Ford ruined the T-Bird!

They really should bring back the tail fin. I don't know where it would be on an SUV but they should try at least.
