BeeuTful! Ground up restored retaining its vintage style but it has some tricks up its sleeve. Under the hood is a dual quad Vette motor and a new a/c system! Other upgrades include a new 4-speed, 12 volt electrical system, stereo conversion and more.

EXTERIOR: Yes, it is a looker! You don't need to be a "car person" to be impressed. The colors are amazing. All steel except 2 front fenders. There is no rust or damage, the body is straight as a rifle barrel. The metal flake is laid out evenly and the clear coat is like glass. It actually looks wet it's so glossy. Up front is fully dressed with optional chrome grill, bumper, headlight bezels and the big Chevrolet emblem. In back it has reproduction taillights and chrome bumper. All new, lightly smoked glass was installed. Radial American Classic fat white walls really look great. 15" rims are painted to match the truck and have new trim on them.

The AM radio has an Fm stereo conversion with dual speakers in the dash. The metal is all painted original color. The chrome trim, knobs, window cranks, steering wheel look new. The instruments have been restored. The seat is reupholstered, new rubber mat. Optional headliner and visors, working dome light. It was upgraded with retractable seat belts and turn signals.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It has a 1962 Corvette 327-340 hp engine with a performance rebuild. It's now making 420 hp and has a set of a set of dual quads on top. Aluminum intake with 2 Edelbrock carbs and electric choke. A new air conditioning system has been installed. New big radiator and an electric fan keeps the motor running cool. Upgraded to a 12 volt system with an alternator. All new wiring, cloth wrapped like the original. All the metal surfaces are painted smoothly, many new nuts and bolts. The motor is dressed up within aluminum Corvette valve covers.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Inside the bed is all refinished. The sidewalls are perfectly straight metal paint a glass finish. The oak floor is redone and has stainless steel strips and hardware. The tailgate is functional.

UNDERSIDE: It is ground up restored underneath. Completely rebuilt and detailed. The steering and suspension have been restored. The brake system has been restored, brake lines and hoses were replaced. New dual exhaust with glass pack style mufflers. Looking up at the motor it is spotless, has a canister type oil filter.

This truck is a people pleaser. Very easy to look at. The new owner will also have the pleasure of using it. Open up all 8 barrels and shifting those gears sounds like fun.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership.
