Vehicle Description

Only 250 miles since professionally restored cosmetically and mechanically. I think everyone would agree this car is striking! From our best client. He literally just had the car professionally inspected and serviced just prior to coming to Volo. It's beautiful and in excellent working condition.

EXTERIOR: The body and paint was made beautiful by the owner of Lloyd's Body Shop. The 2 tone bright red and white is a stunning combination. A classy upgrade is the rich German black cloth top. New power motor, cylinders and hoses too. Cloth wrapped rubber weather strips were replaced around the top. New windshield and rubber gasket. The chrome and stainless sparkles on this car, most has been restored or replaced. The tire and wheel combination really makes it even better. Reproduction Firestone whitewalls and the optional wire basket hubcaps with red centers are sharp looking.

INTERIOR: Just as sharp looking inside. The 2-tone red and white pops. The dash area is all repainted, the chrome bezels shine, plastic lenses are clear. I love the round radio in the middle. The steering wheel is restored, has a new chrome horn ring. The upholstery, door panels, visors and carpet have been replaced. There are front seat belts. New well liner that the top sets in and new white top boot.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The 272 was completely rebuilt by Y-block specialist Pete Wolfe at Lakeview Classics. The motor is also detailed to factory new condition. Rebuilt generator, harmonic balancer, carb etc. Has correct air cleaner, valve covers, hose clamps. Everything is painted up real nice.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Clean metal. Has new gray plaid mat and spare on a painted rim. The fender skirts are included. The bottom of trunk lid and jamb are painted nice, has new weatherstrip.

UNDERSIDE: Very clean and proper. The front end was apart, rebuilt, cleaned and painted. New gas shocks, brakes, bushings. Bottom of the motor is spotless, Fordomatic trans is clean. In back it has gas shocks, new brakes and hoses, e-brake is hooked up. Has newer dual exhaust with correct stainless tips. Frame and floors are solid metal.

This is one good looking car. It makes me happy just looking at it. Go cruise with it and make the world a happier place!
