1953 Chevrolet Handyman Station Wagon, 3 speed manual, straight 6 engine. Rat Rod Daily Driver, or Running Project.

New brakes, re-wired etc

REDUCED to £6990 or near offer.

Reliable, starts on the button. It’s and old car, so driving style has to be adapted a little, driven on short journeys mainly, if longer journeys are planned, then some attention may be needed as does tend to wander a bit and a few bits need updating to compete with modern roads.

Rarer 1953 model. Straight 6 original engine, 3 speed manual gearbox.

Fitted with a moon fuel tank (takes approx. £25 of fuel), comes with a new full size tank which is ready to be fitted with sender unit.

Wipers do not work as they are the original vacuum wipers that have been disconnected. Easy job to buy an electric wiper motor, already has the wiring ready for it. Speedo not working. Have a new front left wheel bearing on order that will be fitted shortly.

Parts included - new windscreen rubber and seals (doesn’t leak) / new key and ignition barrel.

Has had structural welding done. Could benefit from some patching up on other areas. Has new servo brakes, and has been re wired by the previous owner.

Paint is classic rat rod patina which is partly genuine patina and partly painted. Talking point anywhere it goes. Some areas of corrosion and not prefect - but adds to the ambiance of the car.

Crack in the rear door glass, repaired and fine as is.

MOT exempt. Free tax.

Clutch, gearbox, engine, lights etc all good. Handbrake doesn’t work.

Basic inside, some repair needed on the drivers seat/ door cards/ roof lining etc if fussy.

American racing wheels.

Car is 68 years old and not £25-30k. So expect it to be a working/ driving car with age related wear/ tear in a rat rod style. Loads of potential.

May take part exchange, classic/ american/ rod/ truck/ van/ car/ motorbike etc
