Body off frame, rotisserie restoration. Same owner for 39 years,
they gave it a meticulous restoration and were rewarded with many
trophies. It functions as good as it looks!
EXTERIOR: Probably better than it was when it left the factory. The
body is arrow straight, the gaps are precise. No rust or damage.
Repainted its original colors. Polished like a mirror, it is just
as slick on the rockers as the roof. The jambs are slick. All the
chrome sparkles, the stainless is straight and polished. All the
weatherstrips were replaced. The 15 inch Cragar wheels with BFG
tires look new.
INTERIOR: Restored from floor to ceiling like factory new. Replaced
carpet and reproduction mats. Seats have firm cushions and
reproduction upholstery. New matching door panels. Headliner and
visors were replaced, the dome light works. The metal trim is all
painted slick. Clean original gauges. The factory radio was rebuilt
with Am-Fm and auxiliary plug.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Correct 283 with a 4 barrel carb. Upgraded
Pertronix ignition. Stock manifolds, Chevrolet script valve covers
and air cleaner. Correct carb and glass fuel filter. Reproduction
hoses and clamps. The battery has a Delco topper, it's secured
properly and has a disconnect switch. All the metal surfaces are
painted smooth and neatly. Every component looks like new. It
features power steering.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Painted as slick as the exterior. New
weatherstrip, wiring and correct rubber mat. Complete jack
assembly; restored rim with a reproduction whitewall for a
UNDERSIDE: The body was pulled from the frame then flipped on a
rotisserie. The floors are pristine metal- the floors, rockers, and
braces. It was sprayed with red oxide primer and undercoat on the
seems just like it left the factory. The chassis was completely
disassembled and restored. All smooth metal with a semi-gloss
finish. The suspension and steering were completely rebuilt.
Upgraded air shocks in back. Brakes were rebuilt, lines and hoses
were replaced. E-brake assembly is hooked up. Stainless dual
exhaust has polished mufflers. New fuel system including the tank,
sending unit and fuel lines. Looking up at the motor it is
spotless. The starter was rebuilt, it has the correct canister type
oil filter. Saginaw 3-speed trans, rebuilt driveshaft and original
rear end with 3.55 gears. The body was reunited with the chassis
using all new bushings.
The closer you look the better it gets. Right down to the nuts and
bolts it looks new. A folder stuffed with receipts will be
included. There was no expense spared and it shows!
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
