Flashy and trashy! Wow, this car has sizzle!

What a great 50s custom, actually this was a magazine car. Clean California car with awesome factory colors. Easy to drive with power steering and brakes, auto trans. Absolutely a head turner.

EXTERIOR: Yes these are the stunning factory colors- Persimmon and Wimbledon white. A little hand pinstripe gives even more pop. It is fully decked out with trim. The body is super clean and straight. Panels fit square and flush. It is an older restoration but I'll say it still looks great. Paint is glossy and smooth. That is what happens when you start with a clean car, it lasts. The chrome is bright, rear bumpers brand new. Stainless is exceptionally nice, it was straightened and polished. The hood was louvered. The nose and trunk were decked (trim, ornament and lock were removed and filled) She is decked out with continental kit, Lake pipes, dummy spotlights, bumper gaurds, door handle gaurds, rocker moldings, fender skirts and flipper hubcaps on big radial whitewalls. Rims painted to match the body. Front and rear windows are clear, soft rubber gaskets around both and vent windows. Take another look at the louvers and the continental kit, it spells out 56. There's also a vintage locking gas cap.

INTERIOR: Beautiful interior matching the exterior colors. Custom white upholstered seats and door panels. Dash area is sharp looking- gloss paint, bright chrome, hand pinstriped, steering wheel is restored. Interior lights work. Very cool Mercury head interior light in the back seat. Perforated headliner and visors. Interior chrome is shiny. Has plush carpet. Below the dash is a CD stereo. Seats have some minor wear. Overall this interior really pops like the outside.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It has the 312 motor with a functioning set of chromed tri-power carbs on top an aluminum intake. Dressed up with abundance of chrome. Not just some bolt on parts from China but significant pieces of the car were sent to the platers. Something a little more unique is all the finned aluminum parts with the body color painted in between the fins. Of course a little pinstripe on the firewall never hurt anyone. All the wires, hoses, linkages, components are cleanly installed. It has power steering and brakes. It runs great. The previous owner said it will cruise highway speeds no problem.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Fully upholstered and carpeted to match the interior. Has some fun accessories too. A first aid kit, flashlight, road flares and extinguisher all in the finned aluminum with painted fins. The spare tire has a mural of this car airbrushed on the cover. Trunk opens using a lever in the car.

UNDERSIDE: Clean original California rockers, floors and frame. The suspension was lowered 3 inches with shorter coils in front, lowering blocks in back. There are air shocks in back with onboard compressor that can be controlled inside the car.

This car is flashy! You want to be noticed, this car will do the job. It is such a fun car, it will certainly be center of attention!
