The 600 has tremendous presence, a little arrogant (is this why the bad guys drive them in the movies) it seems to say 'we have it but we would rather not show it'. A remarkable car, probably used by the maximum number of Heads of States, every rivet, nut and bolt reeks of quality and workmanship of the highest order.

You are indeed lucky to be the owner of a masterpiece. Take good care of him/her.

Drive safe.

Hi guys, im new here,this is a wonderful site.
Can you post some specs on the 600? Im sure their is more than one carburetor(perhaps even the corvette crossfire style?) Are the heads and block both iron? Whats the curb weight on the behemoth? 4 speed auto perhaps? How many valves per cylinder? Is it an interference engine?( should the timing belt/chain break, piston will hit the valve?)
All in all, a fine and classic car, thanks for sharing. Oh yeah, and it will give me something to look for when Im across the bay!!

The radio only works from the rear controls. The antennae still works fine.
