Lot #855 - A Pro-Touring, absolutely rust-free, Arizona car. This car had a frame-off rotisserie restoration 7 years ago. No expense was spared on this project. It features a Chevrolet LT1 Corvette fuel-injected engine with a 4L60E, 4-speed automatic transmission. The transmission is shifted by computer not an aftermarket kit. A 9" Ford big axle differential was installed. It has a full custom leather interior using imported European hides and all window garnishes wrapped in leather. The bottom of the car is totally painted body color and fully detailed. All of the brake and fuel lines are concealed inside chassis rails. The front frame section and components are Chevrolet Monte Carlo. The frame section and all components are new. The spindles and tubular upper A-arms are from Global-West, Co. The chassis has high-capacity shocks for great handling. The exhaust is custom stainless steel with no clamps or hangers visible. This car has multiple layers of insulation and Dynamat to make it extremely quiet. The wheels are 18" and 17" custom made by Boyd Coddington with rear mounted stems. This car has a digital dash, Vintage Air system, automatic head lights, delay windshield wipers and tilt steering wheel. It features original 1955 Chevrolet air conditioning ducts in dash. The fasteners on car are stainless steel or chrome plated. The battery is mounted in the trunk. There are large stereo amplifiers and a high quality stereo system with Bluetooth hook up. The gas-fill is moved to inside the trunk for smoother outside look and the vent windows were removed. All the glass in car is tinted, not film. The hood features a 1970 Chevelle hood scoop that is steel, not fiberglass. It is equipped with power windows, power seats, power door locks, power trunk release and high capacity aluminum radiator. Features big 4-wheel disc brakes with components made by Wilwood brakes with full function internal emergency brake system. The car has great stopping ability. Features big sway bars for great handling, has a stainless steel grille and is lowered 3" by modifying chassis therefore not hurting the vehicles plush ride. It has full sway bars, front and rear. The engine compartment is highly detailed, hiding all wires and filling all non-functional holes. The windshield wiper motor is moved to under the dash. The firewall is smoothed of all seams. The body is laser straight. All panels on the car are original to this vehicle and there is no rot or rust whatsoever. Slimmer European door handles were added. The car runs and drives as good as it looks.
