It is a Great Investment As Well as well as hitting the road with the utmost confidence!!

I am helping a friend sell this 55’ and have known it for years… This is the 2nd time it was built with this round being completed almost 6 years now. It was owned by another close friend for 23 years and has been a great car. The build that you are looking at started about 8 years ago and was completed in 2010. It has been driven to shows and cruise-ins and is very dependable. About 500 miles ago, he decided to put a brand new GM Crate Motor in it and WOW, what a nice addition.

I love the feel and sound of this car and would not be afraid to take it anywhere! The engine has the perfect blend of torque, smoothness and roaring sound through the exhaust. Hit the key and take off…it’s that simple. This is a car for most any show, power-tours, or just simple family fun at the local shows or cruise-ins.

It has been a Tennessee car most of its life and stored inside. That said, on this last build, it was given 2 new rear quarters to shore it up as a rock solid car. The sides of this car are laser straight inside under the lights or outside.

The construction took 2 years and has been completed approximately 6 years. The craftsmanship is definitely a higher level of quality.

Every piece of this body was blown apart and perfected… It shines today just as it did when completed. That is how you want to buy a car… after it has been completed, driven and tested and stands the test of time.

Things work as they should including but not limited to Headlights / Taillights, Signals, Interior Dash Gauges, Courtesy Lights, Heat, ICE Cold A/C, Speedometer, Smooth shifting 4-Speed Automatic, etc…

Is this car Perfect? No and none of them are… that said, the past owner did not want a wiper motor sticking out of the firewall and thus did not hook them up. It has not seen much rain time anyway. The horn is currently not working… my friend will look in to this. That is about all I can really pick on the car.

Why is he selling it? He is a classic car mechanic by profession and simply bought this car to help the other friend out. He has went over the car, and is selling it to make room for another project.

I reserve the right to end this ad early due to having it for sale locally...
