I painted my PV-544 Chrysler Cordoba Maroon, put in a nice all black interior with pleated perforated seats, and Pirelli CN36 tires (the same tire that came on the turbo Porsche of the day). It was well muffled, but it had a sport cam and totally ported and polished cylinder head, and it would really suprise you. I had a custom trailer hitch assembly, made up of square tube steel and anchored with through bolts into the trunk in proper fashion, and believe it or not I haulde a 17' Chris Craft speedboat with it. I will scan some photos of that era, which happened long before digital cameras.
Yes, that was one great car, I loved it and it gave me tons of fun and great service. I sold it for 3X what I paid for it and used the money for a down payment on a 15 acre farm inside the city limits of Nashville, which had an old farm house on it. The seller (widow) worked out a deal for me, $39,000 paid out monthly with a balloon payment at the end in ten years. I paid it off early and still live on the property today
