Description

Lot #1525 - Mild custom that is not overly done and looks just right. Sitting 3" lower than stock, the car rides on period correct Astro Supremes with white wall radial tires. The body on the car is laser-straight. The paint is new and is finished in a custom blend of Aztec Bronze and Sunset Gold with a hand painted pin stripe. The door handles have been shaved and smoothed which looks great. The car has been nosed and decked, removing all of the emblems to give it a sleeker, smoother look. During restoration, all the trim was removed and plated or polished to give it a like new shine. Inside, the seats have been recovered in a bone colored material featuring a custom pattern. The same goes for the door panels and rear parcel tray which has aftermarket speakers installed. The carpet and headliner are also new. There is a stereo hidden in the glovebox. Under the hood, the big 371cid V8 runs great. Power steering and power brakes. Trunk has been nicely carpeted.
