 Vehicle Description
This car belongs to a distant relative. He asked us to help sell it, as he is close to 80 years old. He and his pal Ed recently refurbished the car. They spent a year together on the project.

At one time, the body was off the frame. The frame was painted and the powertrain was completely rebuilt.

The original transmission and rear-end were rebuilt. A Speedway adapter was installed in order to bolt in a Chevy 350 crate engine.

While the body was off, a new fuel system, a new brake system and all new wiring was installed. The engine was equipped with a new starter, rebuilt carburetor, new charging system, new ignition system, new water pump, new clutch, resurfaced flywheel, new ring gear and new belts & hoses. A new aluminum radiator was installed.

New tube-style shocks were installed. New Lester 6.50/16 whitewalls were mounted. New hubcaps and beauty rings were installed.
The body received new wiper arms and tower, new bezels, new lights, new stainless trim, new welting, new glass, new handles, a new grill, new bumpers, new gaskets/seals and new locks.

The interior got all new upholstery, new switches, new wiring, new dash, new handles/cranks, new trim/emblems, new column switch and new carpet.
Unfortunately, the body work was done poorly. We can see evidence of patch panels and body filler. The paint was done by MACCO and it shows runs and blemishes. We are dissappointed that Nino went forward with assembly after such poor quality body work and paint.

I will call this a 20-footer. It looks great until you start inspecting it closely. Then the flaws become evident.

At the same time, the amount of time, effort and money that were invested in the powertrain, interior and dress-up of this car is significant. We have recipts totaling almost what he is asking for the car!

This car is a great driver. Well done engine swap, 12 volt conversion, new brakes, new steering, new tires, etc. The interior is very nice.

The dilemma is what to do it or redo the body? There is lots to build on, but it will provide plenty of enjoyment just as it is.

We hope you see that there is lots of value in this car. It is not a show car. Nor does "Uncle Nino" expect to get show car price for his baby.
