Despite going out of favor as a style after World War II, art deco design still continues to send reverberations in architecture and industrial design even today.

However, they never made that many of them and reportedly, there are only a handful left. One is for sale in Easley, South Carolina, and the owner is asking $235,000 for it.
It comes with a modern Cummins turbocharged diesel engine and six-speed double-overdrive autobox. The seller says it’s even capable of hitting 80 mph or 128 km/h.
