A lot of time and expense went into this build by the owner of Bob’s Customs and Rods, Upland, CA, as his personal show car.
The body and running gear were built separately and then assembled. Less than three thousand miles on the car since it was built.
Originally a coupe, this steel bodied car was converted to a chopped Carson Top convertible with a completely boxed frame. The dash was replaced by one from a 1948 model.
This car is powered by a 350cid V8 with three deuces, mated to a TH350 automatic transmission. It is fitted with a Fat Man rack and pinion power steering and four wheel disc brakes. The entire undercarriage is either painted the body color or chromed.
Also featured are ice cold vintage air, power windows, remote power door openers, electric trunk opener, tilt wheel, a high quality stainless steel dual exhaust system and a Pioneer AM/FM/CD player with remote control.
An adjustable air ride suspension is controlled with switches and gauges in the console or by remote control.
The white and green interior is completely hand made to fit this vehicle.
The extensive chromed engine compartment and upholstered trunk can both be highlighted by green LED lights as well as the green lighted VDO gauges and shift handle. The front signal lights are integrated into the headlights.
The 15” chromed wheels sport wide whitewall P195/R15 tires on the rear and 165R15 on the front.
My insurance company insured this car for a stated appraised value of $60,000.
Included with this car is a new car cover, a couple of magazines featuring this car and several photos shot during the build.
I am asking $32,500 or a reasonably close offer which is a fraction of the cost to build.
