This 1800s is happy cruising all day at 85 mph in OD w/a 4:56 gear…It works out to about 4250 rpm and the engine sounds very happy if a bit busy.

All of the 122s cars I have had over the years (15) including the present '68 wagon is just like your PV, aero challenged and get pushed around in the wind.
