Description
Originally purchased 11-11-55 in Beeville Texas, the car has spent its entire life in the dry states of Texas and Oklahoma with 2 owners. Recently, the car has benefited from a body-up restoration and looks exquisite. The car retains its original 270cid "Red Ram HEMI" under the hood which runs great. Connected to the Powerflite automatic transmission, this is a fantastic driving example of the top-of-the-line Dodge in 1955. The car has been upgraded with an aftermarket Vintage Air system that works with no problems. The car is also running on a more dependable 12-volt electrical system now as well. Very unique color combination of Cameo Red with Sapphire White. The paint was done in late 2006 on an extremely straight and solid body. We have receipts for a lot of work done to this car including rebuilding the carburetor, new brakes, water pump, fuel pump, all new ignition, mufflers, radial tires and shocks. The motor looks better then it did when it rolled out of the factory. Brand new paint and decals compliment the engine bay along with new wires and hoses.
