This stunning automobile was built in Kaiser's Willow Run factory in the USA in 1953 but then exported to the company's Rotterdam facility and sold new in Sweden, this impressive 3.7-litre Kaiser Manhattan 532 was only registered in the UK in April 2023, since when it has had just one keeper. The vendor regards it as of museum quality and tells us that it has been described as ‘probably the best  in the world’. The odometer shows 246 miles; there's no MoT but, as an historic vehicle, the Kaiser no longer requires annual testing. The car is packed with period extras including a Philips record player colour-coded to match the Kaiser's exterior colour scheme. A full set of tyres has recently been fitted. Accompanying the Manhattan is its V5C, NOVA and registration correspondence, dating information from the American Automobile Club of Great Britain, and some literature on the model. There's also a 2004 German bill of sale for 41,000 Euros plus some photos of the car back then. The brake master cylinder requires replacement and a new one is included in the sale. As such the car will need to be transported. 247 recorded miles
