You are viewing one of the nicest Pro Touring Nomads available. The build started in 2009 and finished in 2012 with 3,468 miles driven since finished. Only professional hands touched this car during the build. Over 200K was invested in the restoration. This car represents a very high end build with much attention to detail. The car is spectacular and needs nothing. The car is priced reasonably considering the cost to build this high of quality car. Must be seen to fully appreciate the quality of build.
Please read on for more particulars of the car:
Body/Paint: The car started out as a primarily rust free car that was in very good condition. Some rocker work was done with the car being all steel and as it came from Chevrolet. Meticulous work was done to make the body straight with all gaps and fitment done to a high level. Multiple coats of primer and blocking was done providing and excellent base for the near perfect paint. PPG Brandy Wine Pearl and black. The black and color was blended mid door between the trim. Wet sanded and buffed to a show finish. The bodywork and paint is stunning.
Interior: The interior is maroon and black leather. Done by C&B in Spokane known for very high quality interiors. Maroon plush high quality carpet. Two tone dash with custom gauge package. The interior appears primarily stock keeping the beautiful originality of the GM design. AM/FM radio with kick panel speakers.
Running Gear: The engine is a Vortec 5.3 Liter, 320 HP out of a 2008 Chevrolet Suburban that was totaled (rail car damage) with only 4 miles. Both the engine and the 4L60E 4 speed with OD transmission was used from the donor. Rear end is C5 (97) Corvette.
Suspension: C5 (97) Corvette front and rear suspension professionally fabricated on the original restored frame. Power rack with transverse leaf spring. All A arms top and bottom are forged aluminum. The frame has been heavily modified to accommodate the front and rear Corvette suspension done by a professional fabricator in Spokane. The car handles and rides like a Corvette. A pleasure to drive.
