I have owned the car for around 22 years. It is well known on the American car scene, and we have travelled thousands of miles over the years. It has featured in the opening display at Rockingham Speedway, the drivers display and Chevrolet dealership display at Goodwood Revival, to mention just a few. I have also had a very successful and lucrative wedding hire business with it. I am selling as I need to thin my collection of seven classics down, due to health reasons.
It had a full body restoration about seven years ago, and an album of hundreds of photos is available to see. All the chrome has been re-done and there is no rust or tarnishing. All locks work. New laminated glass fitted to windscreen and door windows, with rebuilt runners.
It has been fitted with a later 1960 235 cu in straight six from a truck which I rebuilt top to bottom. It had its original bores, and is now +20. It has twin Rochester carbs on an original Offenhauser manifold, and Fenton split Exhaust headers with a custom made stainless twin shotgun exhaust, which is a work of art in itself, and sounds amazing! The radiator was re-cored and it has a large electric fan. It never overheats. Fitted with new alternator. Dyanamat soundproofing throughout.
It is also updated with telescopic Pete and Jake telescopic shockers on the front and dropped spindles. At the rear it has been converted to air shocks, and has 2. 5” lowering blocks. It has full width radial whitewalls. As such it handles really well.
New brake linings and cylinders were fitted not long ago and the all synchro gearbox was recently rebuilt. A brand new repro tank with extra capacity from Tanks Inc was fitted a couple years ago with electric fuel pump to supplement the manual one. It has a Newport electric wiper conversion and 12v alternator. I have a book full of receipts from over the years for many other service items.
The upholstery was re-done last year at great cost and looks beautiful.
Downsides are: Fuel gauge is not working. The paint has a few minor touched in scratches and a couple very minor rust bubbles, but still presents wonderfully with a deep shine. More photos available on request. No silly offers please.
