Up for sale is my May of 1955Custom with grafted Ragtop and matching pans.
List of things done:
-Grafted 2 fold Rag (previous owner)
-Paint is a Hot Rod Black painted by previous owner (some areas are chipped/need attention) Driver quality
-Motor (not sure of size but I can fly on the highway with absolutely no problem) 1776 if I had to guess. Never measured pistons.
-Custom marine grade vinyl interior with reclining seats (interior has some spots that need attention)
-Satin Black Billet Aluminum Running Boards
-Replaced 62+ tails with period correct snowflakes
-Filled holes in on decklid and tried to match hot rod black as much as possible (paint is close but you can see where the touch up paint was sprayed)
-Car was purchased without bumpers so we put blade bumpers on it and spray painted them black
-4" narrowed shockless beam with adjusters in front
-Rebuilt drop spindles, arrowed tie rods, ew tie rod ends in front
-Adjustable Empi Spring plates in the rear
-145 front tires - 165 rear tires
-Added Wolfsburg West windshield wipers
-Rebuilt drum brakes all the way around
-Newer seals from previous owner all the way around
-Kicker 4 channel amp with 1 Kicker 4x6 mounted in speaker grill, nd 2 Kicker 6x9's in a ported box wrapped in matching vinyl in back. Listening to your phone mp3 players SOUNDS AMAZING!
-Installed oval era radio in dash to fill the hole
-New Dash knobs
-New Deck Lid Spring
-Pan was dynomatted (sound deadening) by previous owner
-All lights work
Stuff that needs attention:
-Small areas on interior that need work (peeling)
-Paint is nice but chips and paint cracks in areas, lso where we relocated tails and filled holes in deck lid are close match but noticeably different in light
-horn doesn't work
Original numbers matching pan is in great shape but has a little rust spot near the front. Nothing major.
Car is low and rides great but just like any lowered car it exagerates bumps. These Oklahoma roads are some of the worst in the country.
I do have the stock beam, tock spring plates, nd stock wheels/hubcaps that were on the car when I bought it that will come with the car.
Any questions just feel free to ask.
