Description

Lot #1257 - She is an all parts date code correct, national award winner in the original restored class. Recently she took First Place at the AACA's National Spring Meet. Additionally she is also the recipient of two of the highest national awards for originality the market has to offer, the Chevy International Platinum Award and the Chevy Vettefest Gold Spinner Concours Award. This level of national competition ensures that this classic has gone through the most rigorous expert evaluations for originality, condition, attention to detail and cleanliness. A car receiving the Gold Spinner is entered into the National Spinner Registry. Her one tone of Larkspur Blue #795A color proudly reminisce her true Oakland, California, two family heritage. If you are one that loves gazing at the bright blue summer skies, you will not be able to take your eyes off her. She has a true beauty and radiance like no other. Under the hood, she sports the very rare 283cid/245 high performance engine with dual 4-barrel Carter WCFB carburetors, high performance heads and intake manifold with the left exhaust and the right exhaust. Additional points of interest include Powerglide transmission, generator, original rebuilt working radio, Delco distributor, radiator, Delco 'spiral' shocks, 750x14 BFG wide white wall tires, dual rear antennas, spinner hub caps, rare one piece California bumper, original rebuilt working clock, Delco starter, Bat Wing oil bath air cleaner, two speed electric windshield wipers, original style 12-volt battery and LOF E-Z-Eye date coded glass. She rests in a heated, air conditioned, humidity controlled garage and travels in an enclosed trailer. In 2007, the 100 point engine was detailed by Patrick's Classy Cars of Arizona. Her laser-straight, seamless body is a testament to the tender loving care she has received during the past 50 plus years. She is a proven winner and one of the best originals still around from her golden era.
