$125,000 build. Amazing fit, finish and function!

High end, body off frame custom build. I drove this car home last night and I've just given it a complete inspection. I suggest you watch the video, I could write a book about how amazing this car is. Fit, finish and function all score a 10!

EXTERIOR: The '50 Olds bubble coupe is a very handsome car that lends well to becoming a hot rod. The low slung grill and a set of fat wheels under those bulging rear fenders make a great look. This can't be red paint, it must be red glass because that is what it looks like. The body work is phenomenal. It's laser straight from every angle. The panels are precision fit. The hood and lid have had their trim removed and filled for a clean look. The jambs are painted slick. Inside the fuel door is a billet filler plate. Every piece of stainless was professionally polished and straightened. The chrome was show plated. The glass is all new. Every rubber gasket and weatherstrip is new. Great looking Boyd Coddington wheels- 17s in front 18s in back, extra wide in back. It has Goodyear F1 performance tires.

INTERIOR: Custom interior by Gabe. I'm sitting in the car right now and I can't stress enough the quality and attention to detail. It has leather upholstery on the comfortable bucket seats and rear seat with armrest. Very tastefully done custom made side panels including the kick panels. The headliner is very cool with the Oldsmobile planet with rings symbol embossed into it. It also has a wrinkled leather pattern in the middle with dome light and matching visors. The center console is custom made and upholstered to match. It features a very unique armrest. The Alpine stereo sounds great, it has 10 speakers and an amp in the trunk. The interior metal is painted as smooth and glossy as the outside. It has a very clean dash. The wiper knob and a 12 volt receptacle are mounted below the dash. There is a matched set of VDO gauges including a Quartz clock in the factory location. There is a matched tachometer on the console. The ratchet shifter has a custom made wood bezel and Von Dutch ball. The tilt column is a brushed aluminum with a Budnick custom wheel. Features include cruise control, power windows, reclining seats, 3 point retractable seatbelts and cold a/c. There are nice custom vents in the dash, under the dash, hidden behind the speaker grill and even at the rear of the console. It has premium carpet with matching floormats with bound edges. Something else impressed me- everything fits so nice. There are no loose parts, no corners popping up. It was done right.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Clean, tasteful show quality. It has a very reliable, very powerful 5.7 LS6 Corvette motor. Runs smooth as can be and I assure you that it will put you back in the seat if you punch it! It has a set of headers, billet pulleys and a polished air intake tube. A big aluminum radiator with electric fan and a polished overflow keeps it cool. It has Vintage Air heat and a/c system. Modern power steering with remote polished reservoir. Stainless braided hoses, dipstick, throttle controls. The engine bay is all smoothed out metal, it has custom made filler panels. It is all painted glass finish red, latches are chrome.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Done with the same attention to detail as the interior. It has been boxed and upholstered. Under the hand cut carpet with bound edges are storahe compartments. The back wall has a door, behind it is the battery with remote terminals and a shut off switch. Even the bottom of the trunk lid is upholstered and it also has the planet with the ring around it embossed. The trunk opens with a lever under the driver seat, latches are chrome. i

UNDERSIDE: Upfront it has a new Heidts suspension with polished tubular control arms, coilover shocks, rack and pinion steering system. In back it has a 4-link suspension with chrome tubular control arms and panhard bar, coilover adjustable shocks. Bottom of the motor is polished aluminum, has a high torque starter. 4L60 overdrive automatic has a chrome pan. A custom made aluminum drive shaft goes back to a Ford 9-inch rear end. Has a driveshaft safety loop. Custom brake system with disc at all four wheels, has billet calipers, stainless braided hoses, and an e-brake system. Power brake boosters are under the car. The fuel system is custom with a polished stainless steel tank, electric fuel pump and new fuel lines. Really nicely built 3 inch stainless exhaust system with premium clamps and polished tips. The entire bottom of the car is painted the same red as on top. The chassis is painted gloss black.

This restoration would easily cost $125,000 today. It was done about 10 years ago and driven almost 10,000 miles. It looks like it was done 1 year ago with 1,000 miles. That says it was done right and really well cared for. It drove amazing. One hand on the wheel, it steered, stopped and rode like a new car. I punched it once and it lived up to it's Rocket 88 name!
