For Sale at Auction: 1950 Chevrolet Custom in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

A radical 1950 Chevrolet custom street rod known as "Victory;" was a Ridler Award contender, Great 8 award-winner and has amassed numerous prestigious awards. Built over a 10-year time frame, this Chevrolet was turned in to a rolling piece of art. Dreams of the Ridler Award were largely successful, as the car placed second in Ridler Great 8, alongside cars built by the likes of Chip Foose, Troy Trepanier and Dave Kindig. Taking First Place at over 28 prestigious shows, its victories include the PPG Dream Car Award, First Place at Carlisle and numerous Super Chevy wins. The fascia is completely transformed with Mercedes headlights and a custom chrome grille. From the forward slope to the snug-fitting metal front bumper, absolutely everything is modified in some way. A highly modified hood fits the look perfectly. The roofline, including front and rear glass, is borrowed from a Dodge Neon, though most would be hard-pressed to identify the shape thanks to the alcoves that been carved out in front of the C-pillars. Every inch of trim is shaved in favor of the clean look. Everything is smoothed with subtle taillights. The rear is tucked neatly against the body and features routing for the custom exhaust system. The amount of bodywork involved in the creation of this car is incredible, but the execution is amazing. The glossy two-tone paint features PPG Chianti Red on the upper and Lamborghini Orange to the lower portions. Orange paint continues onto the floor pans, suspension components and frame. Predominant colors are broken up by airbrush work that simulates a thin strip of chrome trim and a small graphic featuring crossed flags reminiscent of the Corvette logo. Behind the logo, marbleized orange paint fills the gap between the airbrush work and a magenta stripe that is outlined by hand in neon green. Apparent from the PPG Dream Car award, the paint is stunning and shows incredibly well from all angles. Power comes from a fuel-injected 502ci big-block Chevy from Street & Performance producing over 500hp before the addition of a COMP roller cam and custom sheet metal intake manifold. Up top is a custom stainless air intake designed for this car and painted with the same PPG paint, as well as aluminum heads and custom chrome valve covers with carbon-fiber inserts. Except for the neatly tucked spark plug wires, there isn't a visible wire in this bay. A polished radiator hidden by a custom body-matched panel that covers the front of the bay. The car has Hooker headers, custom polished stainless exhaust and Stainless Specialties mufflers. The undercarriage is as wild as the body. Featuring a fully polished TH400 3-speed automatic transmission with B&M torque converter, it has a Mooneyes Smart Shift system with a digital push-button unit. It has a polished Mark Williams rear end and a chrome 4-link. **TITLE IN TRANSIT**
