I acquired it in May of 1982. I have had the body off of the frame 2 times as per my desire to change the color.
The car comes with:
1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 4 door station wagon in primer and Disassembled. Very straight, and near painting stage. Frame off restoration in progress.Frame back on, under-chassis finished (4 New Ball Joints,A frame Bushings, front springs, front shock absorbers, and also have put in spindle bearings from a 1965 full sized Chevy, as they bolt right in, and replace the "old style" Ball Bearing style bearings, that are very iffy and could freeze up at any time on the open road. New Rear Springs and nylon mounting bushings, spring anti seperating holders(so springs don't seperate if racing, or "romping" on it), 538 Posi rearend strengthened for twisting or bending and completely refurbished internally)Bolted back to chassis with new Mounting bushing set, and laser centered for accuracy so the car will not be "dog tracking" down the road. Dash and interior floors painted (GM torch red). I have original ownership papers, and they are from Ohio where it was last registered. (but this was originally from California and the owner moved to Ohio) There are 2 hoods. The original hood, and the hood that was used for racing with a hood scoop on it(has a crack on the tip of the scoop, but can be cut shorter)It comes with 1 of 2 motors, the first is a small block 1965 283 cu.in. motor, it has 305 heads on it, and really should be rebuilt before installation. OR a 1970 396 cu.in. disassembled engine, that also would need to be rebuilt. You may choose 1 or the other but not both(I need to let you know that if you decide to choose the big block 396 engine, you will need to alter the firewall, so that the motor would fit properly, where the small block 283 will bolt right in. (It also has on the vin plate the V8 code as this was an original V-8 engine car)
I also have as far as transmissions go, a 1970 turbo 400, that should be rebuilt, a turbo 350 that is partially disassembled, and needs to be rebuilt(reverse cluthces are bad), and a 700r overdrive tranny that is completely rebuilt, and can be bolted in.(probably would be good for this car as it does have the 538 posi gears, and would not have to change pumpkins)
I mentioned the 538 posi rear end, that has been strengthened, and it also looks profesionally done. It also comes with an extra (additional)stock non-posi pumpkin(that is not painted). New Bias ply Mach 70 Belted 15 inch tires mounted on New Cragar chrome reverse with wire basket wheels/with Cragar locks-n-lugs. Rear bench seat tuck-n-roll design with original front bench (not restored). 2 Plymouth Fury "high-back bucket seats that have been restored, but do not match the tuck n roll design of the back seat. Brand new Hurst floor shifter in box(for automatic transmission). New full front to rear wiring harness, light bezels, door handles,weather stripping, window whiskers, window mounting rubber, transmission cross member, drive shaft loop for racing, or just safety of not getting hurt because of a broken u-joint),& extra parts from DanChuk. brake shoes, rebuilt wheel cylinders, emergency brake cables also come with this. Interior panels are new hardboard covered with diamond design black velvet. Nylene Head liner was purchased new from C+P Chevy parts in Pennsylvania, but re-sewn in plain black velvet. Other many new parts, and extras,including roll of red shag carpet for interior. I have posted all the restoration process photos here, E-mail me for information. I have owned this since May of 1982, and am to the best of my knowledge,the 3rd owner. Originally used as drag racing car(From California) Selling as I am having too many problems completing restoration because of limited physical abilities. Asking $8,500.00 or Best offer.
