Vehicle Description

Body off frame restoration, only 2,806 miles since finished. It retains it's vintage looks with some modern touches. Mechanics were upgraded with more modern, reliable and better performing components.

EXTERIOR: The body is straight and smooth. Painted the signature colors- Gypsy Red and Shoreline Beige. It is polished out to a glossy finish. It appears that every piece of stainless and chrome has been replaced. The door jambs are repainted real nice and have new hardware, latches and weatherstrips. The power convertible top is in excellent shape. It rolls on 17 inch polished Budnick wheels and BFGoodrich tires. The tires are a little bit fatter in the back.

INTERIOR: Completely restored. It has the correct tight loop carpet and matching mats. The seats feel like they've been rebuilt because they are firm. New reproduction upholstery on the seats and door panels. It has factory power windows. The dash is restored beautifully. It's painted smooth and glossy, all the chrome trim and knobs have been replaced. It has a retro stereo with new speakers. Under the dash looks new, the heater box, vents, insulation have been replaced. Upgraded billet pedals and a new chrome tilt column with a Budnik steering wheel.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Upgraded with the powerful and reliable Corvette LT-1 350-300 hp motor. It features aluminum heads and electronic sequential port fuel injection. The exhaust manifolds were ceramic coated. The front of the motor has the modern serpentine belt, alternator and power steering. There is also an upgraded power brake system. A big aluminum radiator keeps it cool. Everything is painted and restored really well too.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It's solid metal and completely painted Shoreline beige. New wiring, trunk mat and weatherstrip. The battery has been relocated to the trunk, there is also a CD changer. It has a spare tire that's never been used on a red rim and the original jack. It also has a built in battery tender hooked to the battery.

UNDERSIDE: The body was off the frame for restoration. The chassis was completely taken apart, rebuilt and painted black. The front end has tubular upper control arms, replaced bushings, balljoints, shocks and steering components. It also has been upgraded with a swaybar. Looking up at the motor it is clean, has a high torque starter. The trans was upgraded with an overdrive automatic. A custom driveshaft connects to the original rear end. The rear was apart and gone through. It has a stock type dual exhaust system. Custom stainless fuel tank. Rebuilt brake system- lines, hoses, disc in front. E-brake assembly is hooked up. The floors are all clean metal painted body color.

This car really looks like it was taken apart down to the last nut and bolt. It feels right too, the little I did drive it I was impressed. It is a classic looking 55 Chevy with upgrades that make it very user friendly. Don't just look at it, go out and enjoy it!
