Description

Lot #1259 - From the Eddie Van Halen collection, this 1956 Chevrolet 210 post sedan Pro-street Hot Rod was built by Jim Van Gordon. The car features a 454cid big block Chevrolet with approx 600hp, a narrowed and bullet proof 9" Ford rear with Detroit Locker, Mark Williams axels, 4.30 gears, 4-link coilover suspension, disc brakes, and 15x14 Weld racing wheels, wrapped with 33x19.50 Mickey Thompson tires. The car also features a manual valve body automatic transmission, full racing gauges and a custom interior. This car is completely drag strip and street legal and runs on everything from 110 octane racing fuel to everyday pump gas. The specs on the car are as hot as its looks. Making this auction package even more rare and unique, Eddie Van Halen has personally authorized a custom made, one-of-a-kind guitar built to match the theme of the car. These will be the very first instruments to commemorate the worldwide release of the EVH Brand "Wolfgang" line of guitars that make their debut in Anaheim, CA, on Thursday, January 15, 2009. If that isn't enough, Eddie has included a pair of signature red, white and black striped EVH sneakers. This is an unbelievable, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own the treasured car and guitar of one of rocks most iconic figures ever. The car comes complete with the original 1956 owner's manual, and a copy of the June 1999 issue of "Super Chevy" magazine in which it was featured.
