Here is a Hot rod with extensive custom work. Very comfortable
cruiser. It's roomy and has the luxury of power, brakes, windows
and air conditioning.
EXTERIOR: It's an older restoration that has held up really well.
The body is very straight, there's no rust or damage. It's had
extensive custom body work. The roof was chopped 4 inches, all the
chrome trim has been removed and filled. Upfront the headlights
were frenched, it has custom turnsignals, the bumper was removed
and the lower valance is custom. The door handles on the roof and
trunk were removed and they open with a removed. In back the trunk
was smoothed and opens using a cable in the fuel door. The bumper
was removed, taillights relocated, it has a roll pan with recessed
license plate. There are some cracks in the paint on the roof and
hood, nothing that stands out. Overall it's smooth and glossy. It's
dressed up with dummy spot lights and hand pinstripes on the trunk.
The side windows were replaced with smoked glass. The windshield is
V butted. It has a 3rd brake light in the rear window. The aluminum
wheels are genuine Halibrand bolt inside with spinners. They are 14
inch in front, 15s in back.
INTERIOR: Very comfortable and roomy. 4 adults could fit in here
with no trouble. The blue tweed upholstery is on the seats, door
panels, kick panels and below the dash, it's still in excellent
condition. Blue cloth headliner is excellent, it has working
interior light. The seats feel good, cushions were replaced. The
door panels are custom molded. The headliner has blue cloth and
working dome light. The windows are power. The metal trim is
painted to match the car. The dash was custom fabricated with built
in a/c, a billet bezel with blue digital gauges. It has a Ford tilt
column with a polished wood steering wheel. It has Vintage Air
controls, Sony CD stereo and blue seat belts.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The engine bay is painted the color of the car,
it has a smooth firewall. The 302 engine is rebuilt with mild
performance upgrades. It has an Edelbrock intake, dual feed Holley
carb and a set of headers. Dressed up with aluminum valve covers
and air cleaner. The front of the motor has a Ford power steering
unit, chrome alternator and a Vintage Air system. An aluminum
radiator with an electric fan keeps it cool. It has an easily
accessible remote oil filter.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The trunk opens with a pull cable that's hidden
inside the fuel door. Inside the trunk it's been boxed and
upholstered in tweed, even the bottom of the trunk lid. It's a
carpeted floor with some fading on the carpet. There is a full size
spare and the battery is relocated to the trunk.
UNDERSIDE: The body was off the frame during the custom build.
Everything is painted the same light blue color. Up front is a
Mustang ll independent suspension with coil over shocks and a rack
and pinion steering. In back it uses parallel leaf springs and
shocks. Custom dual exhaust looks like it was recently installed.
The power brake booster and master is located under the car. It has
disc in front. Looking up at the motor it looks clean, starter
looks fresh. The trans is a Ford C-4 automatic with a finned
aluminum pan. In back is a 10 bolt rear with a chrome cover. The
metal floors are real clean and painted smooth and glossy.
It's an older build but I'm very impressed how well the car has
been cared for. It's still smooth and glossy, the upholstery is
very clean. It even smells good inside! We just acquired it back
from the couple we sold it to 8 years ago. They enjoyed the car
very much, now it's your turn!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure
your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do
a walk around video that explains the car's condition in
**These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a
particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car.

showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you
will be given a 1 year membership.
