Vehicle Description

This is an Incredible No expense spared rotisserie build with everything 100% new or restored. Fuel-injected small block V8 Auto trans with overdrive A/C power windows leather stereo and more! Ready to cruise and show at any level. This is a True Must See car ready for shows or cross country trip!The goal was to build a car with a '70s Auto-Rama vibe without going too far into the wacky zone and I think they've succeeded. Starting with an incredibly solid Chevy 2-door they stripped it bare and started rebuilding it almost at the molecular level. Chevy fans will quickly spot the Nomad quarter panels which open up the wheel arches and give this coupe a slightly different look. The paint is simply called "Medium Garnet Red" and it comes from a luxury car pallet but it looks just about right on the vintage Chevy bodywork. The shine is deep and reflective and you won't find any ripples or waves anywhere on this car. As I said there's a HUGE investment in time to get everything just right.All the chrome was refinished as well including the 1-piece California bumpers (this is an original California car and also has Correct California seamless frame). You'll quickly spot the Corvette style grille inserted up front which is a favorite upgrade that makes a big difference in the look and that side trim is from a 1955 Pontiac-bet you didn't even notice because it looks like it belongs there. The remaining trim from the headlight bezels to the door handles to the taillight housings is new. A few bits have been shaved to give it a clean look.The tan leather interior replicates the original patterns and look but the plush feel is beyond anything they were doing in 1955. The power windows zip up and down faster than on a new Cadillac the A/C blows cold and there's a killer Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo system that sounds especially good thanks to extensive sound-deadening materials used throughout the cabin. Add in the handsome plush carpets the wood-rimmed billet wheel and those trick Dakota Digital gauges and you have a car that feels far more upscale than a vintage Chevy should. And again everything is new from the door handles to the shiny billet insert on the dash and even the clock over on the passenger's side is fully operational. You'll note the tilt column's shifter quadrant has four positions for the 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission underneath and the Vintage Air A/C controls are a dead-ringer for the originals. The trunk is modestly finished with a matching carpet mat bound at the edges and you can see that even in the trunk the paint was professionally wet sanded and buffed. Impressive deep mirror shine!Powered by a new GM crate 350 fitted with aluminum heads upgraded camshaft and the other usual bolt-on upgrades so it's a fantastic runner. A big part of that is the FAST fuel injection system sitting on top of a Summit aluminum hi-rise intake which makes this car run like it was built in 2015 not 1955. Turn the key and the system pressurizes in a second or two then fire it up. It idles smoothly at 700 RPM right off the bat-no fussy choke or finicky throttle problems. Just start and go. There's a very trick touch-screen interface hidden in the glove box that allows you to tune the engine as you drive and monitor conditions in real-time a fantastic tool for getting everything right. And it looks just as good as it runs with chrome Chevrolet valve covers and a matching air cleaner a polished billet aluminum serpentine belt accessory drive and a giant Griffin aluminum radiator up front with a pair of fans to manage heat. Of course everything is new including wiring hoses belts and all the stainless hardware.Underneath it's just as impeccably clean and well-detailed starting with a rare California-only one-piece seamless frame. A 3-inch exhaust system with X-pipe and modest mufflers sounds suitably racy but never gets annoying (since this car was designed to cruise long distances in comfort). The front suspension uses tubular lower control arms and disc brakes while a Ford 9-inch hangs on leaf springs out back with 3.55 gears inside which works great with the overdrive transmission. There's a brand new gas tank hanging out back and it sits on a set of traditional Cragar SS wheels with 215/70/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.This is a True Turn Key car that does not need anything.
