Very cool 50s style custom. Big block power, rides on air and has a lift off top!
EXTERIOR: It has a look! Big fat fendered car with lift off Carson top. The top is chopped 5 inches, it's padded and upholstered in rich black canvas, has chrome framed rear window. It now has suicide doors that have been shaved and filled. The trunk lid is shaved, has release cable inside the car. It also has fender skirts, original set of Appleton spotlights (not functional) and 50s style hand pin stripes. The body and paint are presentable, not show quality. Sharp burgundy metallic color. The whole grill is really nice, has glass teardrop headlights. It has 1948 Plymouth bumpers, front is original, the rear has been rechromed. Has radial white wall tires. Once parked you can slam it to the ground for a real dramatic look.
INTERIOR: The dash is signed by George Barris and Gene Winfield. It is good condition not high end. Custom upholstered, has storage space behind the seat. It has a Lokar floor shifter, a modern stereo system is in the glove box and it is hands free voice controlled. It also features a traffic light viewer, has turn signals and power windows.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Big block Chevy 454 motor with aluminum intake, big dual feed Harley carb, HEI ignition system. It is dressed up with a 1950s Cadillac air cleaner painted and pinstriped to match the car. A set of finned aluminum valve covers are painted to match too. I love the headers. Pretty wild looking things that go around the frame and down through the fender well.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has a release cable inside. The floor is carpeted, the sides are boxed and upholstered. It is home to the air ride compressor and tank and also a battery with a disconnect.
UNDERSIDE: Front suspension has RideTech air bags with 3 inch drop spindles. In back it has a custom installed 4 link rear suspension with new ride tech Shockwave bags. Bottom of the motor is clean, has flywheel cover, starter looks new. Mild performance built Turbo 350 trans and a GM 10 bolt posi in back. It has been upgraded with disc brakes in front. The exhaust winds it's way to the back, has glass pack mufflers. Upgraded electric fuel pump and stainless braided hose. The floors appear to be solid, painted black.
This is a show car of a different sort. It wont win for condition but it will win popular votes. Done in such a cool 50s style fashion with some great features. It's going to turn just as many heads and you'll probably have more fun with this and you would with the high end build!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
Don't be intimidated, contact sales now for a no pressure, no hassle experience!
