Lot #652 - This Bel Air "Lady Ebony" Resto-Mod is a triple-black convertible with classic styling and modern supercar upgrades. The brand-new custom build was completed in April 2016 and features an Art Morrison GT Sport chassis, powered by a 556hp supercharged CTS-V Cadillac LSA with 6L90 6-speed automatic transmission. This Cadillac-inspired 1955 Chevy convertible even has the flying lady on the hood. It's capable of 178 mph in fifth gear and 12.2 seconds in the quarter-mile at 119 mph. The custom chassis by Art Morrison provides modern-day sport suspension and includes triangulated 4-link suspension with Ford 9" Strange 3.25 posi-traction and Wilwood disc brakes, 13" cross-drilled and slotted rotors and 6-piston calipers, and rack & pinion power steering. The power convertible top is black Stayfast material. The interior is Cadillac CTS-V-inspired custom black leather with black suede inserts, power seats and a custom console. The interior also features ice-cold Vintage Air, custom gauges, custom Autosound radio, power windows and a custom tilt steering wheel. Other highlights include smoked glass, Griffin radiator, stainless Rock Valley fuel tank, American Autowire harness, Street Performance engine and transmission stand-alone harnesses, as well as custom-tuned ECU, LED taillights and custom mandrel bent exhaust. Drive-in style with this car that was built to be driven for comfort.
