Description

Lot #403 - This car started as a low mileage California car. Then it went through a no-expense-spared, complete restoration. The body was un-cut and all original when the restoration started. The body was stripped to bare metal. All chrome was either replaced or re-chromed. Interior was all redone with a 6-way power '65 Cadillac seat and power windows. Wheels are Boyd Billet wheels with Mickey Thompson 29.5 x 18.5 x 15 rear tires. Motor is a Chevy 383 Stroker with Mooney Ham blower and two 750 Holley carbs. Motor is balanced and blueprinted with TRW pistons, Erson roller cam, Chevy big valve heads work by RH Products, Erson aluminum rocker arms and valve sprints with stainless steel valves, Melling high volume oil pump and Crager intake manifold. Has 3.55 gears in rear end. This car has won many trophies and awards and has been featured in major publications like "Car Craft", "Hot Rod" and "Rod and Custom". Body and paint are flawless as is the undercarriage. As far as the motor, it does not get any healthier than this. This car runs and drives perfect. Very dependable.
