Complete reproduction interior kit including cushions, upholstery, door panels, carpet, headliner etc. Correct tight loop carpet. Bel Air chrome ribs on the ceiling. All the bits and pieces were replaced- kick panels, window cranks knobs etc. It even has factory style a/c vents, the heater controls look stock but are new with electronics instead of cables. The interior metal is repainted smooth and glossy. Upgrades include all new wiring harness with push in fuses. Very cool Retrotech gauges resemble the original but are modern and include a tachometer. The steering wheel looks original but is a smaller diameter for more room. The radio looks original but is modern. Upgraded clock, interior lights work. There are new seat belts front and back, the front has retractable shoulder belts.

The metal is painted smooth.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Clean metal painted white. Reproduction mat and weatherstrip. Restored spare and jack assembly. It is complete and tidy.

UNDERSIDE: The body was off the frame, and it was completely rebuilt and detailed. The floors are pristine metal painted gloss black. The chassis is also clean metal painted black. Fuel system was replaced including the tank, sending unit and fuel lines. Fat dual exhaust has crossover pipe and Flowmaster mufflers. The front-end steering and suspension were completely rebuilt, it has an upgraded swaybar. Brake system was upgraded. Disc at all 4 wheels e-break is hooked up. All the body bushings were replaced. Looking up at the motor it still looks new, it has the GM part number sticker on it and a high torque starter. 4L60E electronic overdrive automatic transmission also still looks new with the part number still on it.

The closer I looked, the more I loved it. The amount of thought and pride that went into this build is very impressive. I look at so many 55-57s and this one is outstanding to me. You will not regret buying this one!

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 detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership.
