This Arizona vehicle was used to transport co-workers to the Lavender Pit Mine in Bisbee, Ariz. by the second owner in 1953. Full frame-off restoration started in 1996 and completed in 2006. There was no part untouched. Everything is new or rebuilt. The original engine was replaced with a full pressure 235cid Chevrolet engine. Mostly original parts used, some quality reproduction parts. Many regular production options like exterior sun visor, arm rest, heater, traffic light viewer, windshield washer and oil filter. Close adherence to original materials and colors on body, engine, drivetrain and interior. Optional 3rd row seat and rare clamshell rear door. Drives beautifully.
