1954 Chevrolet CustomThe classic 1954 Chevrolet was the final year of this body style with a huge change for Chevy coming in later models. You can easily see the influence the car had on the 55 that was to be designed next as it has a more boxed look with a flatter nose then previous years. This very cool 1954 Chevrolet takes that classic vintage look and adds a certain toughness to it. It is definitely more of a hot rod than the typical boring cruisers you see. Painted in a Black and Red color combo this classic looks great driving down the road. Possibly one of the biggest selling points on the car has to be the price! Due to the car needing very minor work to complete the restoration we are able to offer it up for far less than you would typically pay for a body off restored custom 54. The car was just gone through 750 miles ago and only lacks the headliner and trunk upholstery to be considered complete. The exterior and drive train have already been worked through and finished out. The chrome work is all in great condition with a custom bumper found in the rear. The correct Chevrolet badging is found on the hood but look close and you will see the deck lid and doors have been shaved of any trim. This gives it a pretty cool look and gives you the perfect canvas should you want to add pinstriping or graphics to the trunk lid. Because the door handles were removed, remote door poppers open up the front doors giving you access to the interior. Another really cool custom feature is the suicide rear doors that were extremely well done. This echos the style of 4 door Mercurys and other classics that had factory rear suicide doors. If someone didn't know this wasn't offered on the car then you could easily fool them by how well it was done. All of the glass on the car has been accented with a nice tint that works well with the Black paint. It has a great stance and mounted on all four corners are Red Corvette rally wheels wrapped with BF Goodrich tires.Under the hood is a fresh 350 V8 that was brand new when installed. It was built up with a slight cam and performs very well. It has a look that is cross between new age custom and old school. Newer style billet and chrome is in place with features like cool flex hoses, Chevrolet valve covers, that all look great. The old school comes in with the 3, 2 barrel Rochester carburetors sitting on top with small chrome circle air cleaners. Other nice components found under the hood include the chrome power brake booster, March serpentine belt system, and after market radiator. The car has an AWESOME sound especially with the added electronically operated cutouts giving you the option to route the exhaust through muffles or straight from the headers. Backing up the engine is a Turbo 350 automatic transmission that shifts smoothly and sends power back to the rear wheels through the 4:11 rear end. The suspension system on the car was very nicely done with adjustable coil overs and a Fatman front suspension up front. The car is very comfortable to drive. To go with the power brake booster, Wilwood discs were added up front. This a long with power steering and a Vintage AC/Heat makes this car very enjoyable. The interior of the car utilizes leather bench seats with Red upholstery and carpeting that is all new. The dash has been finished out and is nicely painted Red with beautiful chrome trim. Nostalgic style Classic Instruments gauges make the perfect combination for the unique billet bezels and a tachometer was added as well. Hidden in the passengers glove compartment is the new aftermarket AM/FM/CD player. This provides you with your favorite tunes without having to cut into the dash. An Ididit tilt steering column is in place and is topped off with a polished GT Grant steering wheel. A Lokar shifter is mounted to the floor board and clicks through the gears with ease. As mentioned earlier, there are a few areas that need finishing to truly call the car complete and all of these are found in the interior. The headliner and trunk upholstery work is all it needs. The door panels are brand new as is the package tray. The surfaces needing upholstery added have all been prepped and Dynamat insulation was added throughout. A battery was remotely mounted in the trunk and sits in a very cool custom Coca Cola battery box.As you can see the car needs very little work to be a complete car. Every other piece is finished out and the car could easily be driven and shown as is should you choose to do so. It would make a great car for someone who wants to put a little work into a cool classic without having to do a full restoration. These areas are left up to your taste so you can design them exactly how you want. Take this cool custom home today for $22,500.00!
