SERIES SIXTY SPECIAL FLEETWOOD

On this line, Fleetwood lettering was used on the front fenders and on the trim strip crossing the bottom of the deck lid. A rear facing, bullet-shaped, scoop-like convex panel was used on the rear doors and fenders and was trimmed by a similarly shaped body rub molding that extended to the front wheel well at the bottom and to the headlamps at the top. Pillared, six window styling was seen and a three-deck jeweled rear grille was featured. The rear wheels were skirted and wheelbase was now identical to all but the "Seventy-Five" models. The standard equipment list included all 6200 and 6300 features plus power vent windows and dual outside mirrors.
