This car is a completely new build starting with the boxed frame. After welding in the Nailhead motor mounts, running all the brake lines and complete mock up. The car was completely stripped down, the frame was powder coated white, suspension components rear spring and 9" Ford posi rear where painted black. The engine was completely torn down, bored .030 over and professionally rebuilt. The body was properly blocked and prepped and painted with House of Kolor, Pagan Candy Gold.
We then began the final assembly keeping true to our goal of making it look as if it was done in the 60's. We followed the Buick theme that began with the 401 CI nailhead, mated it with a 4 speed Muncie M21. We found an original set of 1953 Buick tail lights. Then we sourced the "Buick" finned drum set up with internal disc brakes from SoCal Speed Shop. We also wanted the exhaust to stand out so we used lakester style headers with turndowns that go through a unique connector that help set the car apart from the rest. We had the original distributor rebuilt, then we added Pertronix 2 and an igniter coil for reliability. We made a custom shift arm and found a 20's truck hand brake for use as an e brake.
We found original Stellings and Hellings air cleaners to mount to the period correct tripower set up. The car has the gas tank in the trunk, with a gas cap mounted on the rear quarter. The battery is also in the trunk and still has plenty of storage room left over. The car was wired and completed. The only thing left is to do the actual upholstery. But the car can be driven and enjoyed as it is. The seat is comfortable and the car has plenty of knee and leg room.
Have clean CA title in hand. Currently registered in CA but it is in Florida. No expense spared build. Runs cool and drives great. Sold as is where is. Absolutely NO trades
