Lot #486 - 2 ? years and over 4,000 hours were spent bringing her to this beauty. She may have started as a 150 Model when new, but she is completely custom now. This was a complete frame-off restoration. Every nut, bolt, washer and screw in her is brand new. All the body is original. There are absolutely no patch panels in her. She rolls on Goodyear tires and mounted on the best rims available, Foose Design Wheels. The frame was completely sandblasted, then painted, a new 12 bolt rear end was custom fitted and the disc brakes and all new drop suspension was installed on the front. All the brake lines are custom made. The engine is a 35Ocid/350HP, bolted up to headers and 3" ceramic coated exhaust and has been dyno-tuned in the car. It is matched with a custom built 700R4 Corvette transmission. The firewall is shaved and smoothed and all the wiring is hidden. The engine compartment has a lot of chrome and polished stainless steel lines. The cooling system is a custom aluminum polished radiator and with the air conditioning on in July in Las Vegas she runs at 195 degrees and blows cold. The interior has new Glide-Rite seats and everything is covered in leather, except for seat inserts. The trunk is also finished in leather and carpet. All windows are electric and the car has tilt wheel and Classic Instruments. The dash is Billet aluminum and is fitted with a new custom Stereo/CD. Her paint is a stunning metallic blue/silver. She has the perfect stance. I have removed the bird from the hood and all the emblems and mirrors from the outside to make her more of a ONE-OF-A-KIND. This car is as much a Show Car as she is a Driver. She cruise's down the freeway like a dream. In her first car show after being finished in June of 2008, she won "BEST OF SHOW", Classic Car, at the Inaugural Car & Bike Show, held at Red Rock Harley-Davidson. Less than 1,000 miles since restoration.
