Good try sleeper. Those are not the features listed on the sales brochure. Does the work Victory come to mind?
33MM Schebler Carb in 1955?

too bad all i have is the regular FL sales sheet for 1955 so i can only guess!

however i do know they were "proved" features that included the new horizontal tail light with rubber mounted socket and timken bearings.

Stop and think about the differences between the FL and FLH and you may get it.
