Burgundy Paint with Champagne Gold Top.
Special order with Stick Shift Overdrive
and 352 V8 engine, the largest engine in 1955.
Opportunity to own a true vintage collector car,
with only 35,000 original miles.
Ordered new and spent its whole life in East Texas.
Needs assembly and finishing.
This is a straight and solid car that I personally have known about and been familiar with since it was nearly new.
I got it from a car collector friend of mine that took the car apart to restore. Before he could restore it, his memory went bad (dementia) and he was unable to finish it.
I have most all the parts and the paint is mostly done. Some of the parts are missing because the friend I got it from can't remember where they are, the drive shaft, heads and pistons. He also lost the title or can't remember where it is. I have the car with a bill of sale and selling with a bill of sale.
The paint has three or four coats of base color and I have enough paint for one final base coat plus two gallons of clear coat.
I have the original engine, original transmission, seats, glass (some of the side glass is cracked), windshield and back window very good. Bumpers have been chromed at a cost of over two thousand dollars (show quality). Starter rebuilt, has power steering pump and radiator. Most all the original trim, including door panels, all the parts are very clean & boxed separately.
Will consider selling car as roller, less engine, transmission, drivetrain and bumpers.
