Vehicle comes from Alabama, where it has been collector owned
and resto-modified during the mid-late 1990s from what I was told.
The vehicle was professionally repainted,
had a new interior installed,
crate motor installed,
rebuilt brake system,
checked transmission and rear end, electrics, etc.
Overall a total of over $20k was spent on the car
and it spent the last 10 or so years in Florida at a large dealership
attracting attention and customers.
Interior is in VERY GOOD condition with general wear here and there.
Seats have been reupholstered.
Doors have flat steel panels on the insides.
Carpet removed and hard mat installed as seen.
Dash is good.
Professionally made custom convertible top boot (that looks like it has a folding top under it).
Overall a beautifully presentable driver quality interior!
Under the hood lies a later model crate 350ci/275hp block that is mostly stock
other than the addition of HEI electronic ignition and 4bbl. carburetor.
Starts easily and sounds great.
Good stock power overall and brakes stop fairly WELL.
Nice and solid throughout.
Steering is nice and nimble.
Very fun to drive once you get used to it.
I've driven it mostly around town here and there, never on any longer trips.
Underneath the car appears pretty solid
with extra braces and support brackets welded to the chassis for stability
and to keep the body from flexing, since there is no roof.
Trunk is pretty solid throughout.
Floorboards appear pretty good overall and don't show any large holes anywhere
that I was able to see.
Side braces seem in one piece and in good shape as well.
Being an old car, it is NOT perfect by any means.
Paint shines up NICELY with good luster for a GOOD driver (NOT a showcar of course).
Some general small scratches/chips/dents etc. as you would expect
from driving along and regular use.
Rear passenger side lower door has bubble clusters in that area.
I haven't driven the car in a while, so it should have fluids checked
and replaced before it is put back on the road.
One spinner cap missing center spinner.
A couple of the gauges may not be connected.
May need a couple of bulbs replaced and electrics checked
(which I'll have my mechanic if I get around to it).
That's about all I was able to notice from my inspection.
I am sure there are other tiny details I've forgotten
so please keep that in mind, this is NOT a brand new car obviously.
OVERALL THIS IS A VERY NICE DRIVER WITH A LOT OF MONEY SPENT ON IT
THAT WITH SOME TLC AND SERVICING COULD EASILY BE A VERY FUN DAILY DRIVER.
GREAT LOOKING 1955 BEL AIR CUSTOM CONVERTIBLE
THAT HAS GREAT POTENTIAL AND IS WAITING FOR A NEW OWNER
TO TAKE IT UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL OR ENJOY IT AS IS
