Description

Lot #1259.1 - From the Eddie Van Halen collection, this 1956 Chevrolet Nomad features factory air conditioning. 1956 was the very first year of factory air conditioning for Chevrolet. The power plant consists of a 265/210hp Power Pack V8 with power steering and power brakes. An upgrade to disc brakes was added for better stopping performance and safer driving. This car received a frame-off restoration and was part of the Harrah's Collection prior to being owned by EVH. 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 rock's most iconic figures ever. The car comes complete with a copy of the June 1999 issue of "Super Chevy" magazine in which it was featured.
