DESCRIPTION

Complete body off the frame restoration. Much more then meets the eye- a/c, custom suspension, brakes and steering, 6-speed, ZZ4 motor etc. Started with a rust free car. Has 2 inch thick pile of receipts to document the build.

EXTERIOR: Rare handyman panel wagon. This accounts for less then 1% of the different models made. It has a great look. Perfect stance, lowered 3 inches. Polished staggered size Torque Thrust wheels with G-force tires. 17x7 in front, 18x10 in back. Rust free, clean straight body to start with. Finished in hot rod black. Hand pinstriped to match interior. The side panels are a blank canvas for your business name or just something fun and creative. New chrome bumpers, grill, emblems light bezels, mirrors, handles. Smoothie bumper in front. All new smoked glass. New weatherstrips, window seals and gaskets. Has halogen headlights and optional reverse lights. In back it has lift up 1 piece door.

INTERIOR: I really like the interior, it classes it up. Has optional rear seat. The interior was gutted, aviation insulation was used on the floors. Lokar pedals and throttle assembly were used. New wiring harness front to rear. And it was completely carpeted front to back with sewn edges and matching floor mats. The seats and side panels are custom upholstered to match. The rear seat folds down flat. Front seats are reclining buckets with fold down armrests and a map pocket on the back. There are seatbelts front and back. New headliner and visors. The dash has been completely restored- repainted, all new chrome trim, new gauges and lenses. Has a Mooneyes hot rod tachometer mounted to the tilt column. Has smaller version of the stock steering wheel. The air conditioning uses new vents and controls that look factory. Has nice custom console with cup holders and the entertainment system. The touchscreen operates the stereo, navigation, hands free phone and back up camera. Very comfortable, user friendly interior.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Has ZZ-4 350 motor that will deliver reliable hp where ever you want it to take you. Has aluminum heads and intake, Holley carb, HEI ignition and coated headers. Griffin aluminum radiator with overflow and dual electric spark fans keeps it cool. All new air conditioning, power steering, alternator systems. Wilwood power brakes and master cylinder. Upgraded rain gear underdash wiper system. It uses a serpentine belt system.

UNDERSIDE: Very impressive under this car. Look at how clean the frame and floors are, dry and smooth as a chalkboard. Body was off the frame, has all new bushings. No undercoat, not even pitted. Up front it has all new suspension and steering. Upgraded power rack & pinion, new shocks, sway bar. Bottom of motor is clean. Has 6-speed Tremec trans with hydraulic clutch and electronic speedo cable. Its connected to a new Currie 9 inch rear with 3.50 posi and strange axles. Complete custom Jim Meyer rear chassis. It actually ties into the frame up by the trans. Has square tube center section and cross members. 4 link adjustable rear suspension with transverse bar and QA-1 gas adjustable coil over shocks. Upgraded to disc brakes at all 4 wheels. Lokar e-brake assembly. Has a real nicely bent,fat stainless steel custom exhaust with Thrush mufflers. Has stainless brake and fuel lines, new fuel tank. Everything underneath was done right!

This is a high end build, the closer I looked, the better it got. They used quality parts and it is obvious the builder was meticulous. Best of all it is user friendly.
Use it anywhere, anytime. If you have a business it's a write off!
