Set up with a remarkable stance and outfitted with rims that
mystify everyone who catches sight of the infinity illusion, this
car is a remarkable compilation of imaginative automotive re-design
and a demonstration of exceptional metalworking talent. The Body
modifications started with a 48 super DXL. 42,000 mile (one owner
car) The top was cut and chopped 3 1/2 then a modified all steel
hand built top was fit to the rear beltline with 5" added between
deck lid and cockpit opening. Five locating pins position the top
and one allen bolt behind the rear view mirror secures it in place.
The trunk floor was altered and accommodates a 25 gallon gas tank.
Both front and rear bumper pans are rolled and hand formed with
character lines to match the flow of the car. Tail lights and park
lights were also hand worked to carry on the theme. French
headlights, grille, fenders, running board and windshields keep the
aerodynamics flowing. The hood has been lengthened 1' with a filled
center strip. The dash board is fitted from a 49 Ford with tinted
glass over the cluster. Also incorporated is a hidden center panel
containing the accessory switches and Pioneer C.D. The window
moldings were modified and swept into the dash (roadster style) and
the air conditioning ducts were hand built to fit the dash. The
60/40 bender seat was altered to fold forward for rear access and
to comfortably recline. The tops of the doors at the rear and
fronts of quarters were cut and rolled inward to get better
aerodynamic design flow. The leather interior and headliner was
completely hand crafted. The 500 cubic inch cad engine has been
color keyed to the interior and fitted with a hand built batwing
air cleaner. Also installed was a lunati cam kit, Pertronix flame
thrower ignition, 850 spread bore carb and jet coated headers.
Bolted up behind is a modified 700R4 w/ overdrive trans. Mustang
style front suspension with tubular A-arms, gas shock absorbers,
power rack & pinion, disc brakes. Everything is pushed by a 9" ford
rear end with triangular four bar coil spring holders and geared
with a 3:25 positrac. Custom 2 1/2" exhaust with aero chamber
mufflers makes her purr and a walker 4 cone radiator with 16' fan
keeps it cool. The chrome wheels were custom built by Colorado
Custom producing 16x7 fronts 4 1/2" B.S. 17"x13" 2 1/2" B.S. rears
with 215x16 BF Goodrich and 345x55 BF Goodrich. Last but not least
the refinishing is done in black base coat and four coats of clear.
If you are showing, cruising or just collecting, this car leaves
nothing to be desired. The excellent condition shown by its bottom
to top and inside out restoration of this vehicle and its lower
than market price, for a vehicle in this condition, makes it a
perfect choice for getting into the classic car market either as an
investment opportunity or as a weekend or daily driver. If you've
wanted a beautifully restored and sporty super stylish car with all
the muscle and guts it was born with and at an affordable price
this is the one! Don't wait. Mileage stated in listing is the
