Read, iew and pour over hundreds of pictures. We don't hide anything and we have years of satisfied clients as you can see in our feedback. This build can be seen up close and appreciated and we show that in our pictures, etails and disclosure so you can feel confident in making an offer that can buy this car. If you want this car like I did when I saw it, hen make it rain $100s and watch how excited I get to see you win and own this car. That is what I am about. People ask me all the time, have you ever wanted to keep one?" Of course I have, ike this one, ut I love selling dreams and seeing people reach them. I get them, rive them, show them, eet great new friends with them and get to have all the beautiful models pose with them for a permanent record of my fabulous collection of thousands of cars over the last 14 years. You get to do the same if you want...or just sit there and wait until someone else calls me and makes an offer that buys your dream. Nah! Pick up the phone to make your deal with me, ou won't get figures any other way unless you bid and hit the reserve. Good Luck and talk to you soon.

If you want to make a deal,

pick up the phone and talk your serious offer.


Before you send me that awful question, what's your reserve or bottom line", et's take a moment to explain market values and how to get a deal on eBay. There isn't any "Book Value" from the Kelly Blue Book or NADA Guide on a car like this. Figures both selling and buying for cars like this are subjective in nature and the only number that counts, f you are the seller, s the one from a serious buyer that makes you an offer. Over 28 years in thebusiness, ealers like myself, uy and sell by looking at what it must have taken to build a car like this and take a rough guess as to what someone might buy it for. Do I have an asking price, ure if you want to hear me shoot at the moon, ut that number will have nothing to do with what you may offer whether that's higher or lower. That is why we sell exclusively on eBay and at other reputable auctions. The numbers or offers come from the buyers that are serious and just like me, ake their own minds up as to what they are willing to spend. We arehere to sell cars. With thirteen yearsexclusivelyon eBay and perfect feedback, t's obvious we do.

How? Well, hat's easy too. Real buyers with serious offers in mind call us. They almost always want to talk to the person in charge; that's me. I want to talk to you too and help you own this awesome vehicle. It keeps me in business. So, f you want a fantastic vehicle like you see here, ne that is far above the average in condition, erviced and documented like this, simply call. Asking through email for my bottom line? Well, I just think you're not too serious or willing to make an offer; makes it a waste of my time and yours. If you just want to know what the market value is, o what we do, ook atKelly Blue Book andNADA Guideand other online sources. Does that mean we always hope to get exactly book value, above or below? That's a loaded question. Depends on the rarity, iles andcondition. Most important though, ince you "are" a serious and capable buyer, all me and let's talk. I don't wear a Plaid Coat, don't talk really fast and I am the guy in charge, he owner, nthusiast and purveyor of some of the finest cars on the internet...not to mention the best thorough presentations.

Let's make a deal...Call me



This 1955 Chevrolet Belair two door sedan is a builders dream. Most of the time, will get project cars that I just can't wait to start and finish. High hopes and dreams are always as good as my pocket book can shell out. Have plenty of that but I don't have plenty of time to build this cream build car. We build a bunch of vintage Mustangs and Corvettes but this little beauty keeps taking backstage. So after it sitting in the back yard for two years, 've finally decided it's going to a home where it will be the focus of attention and be that spectacular build I was hoping to make it into.

Of course, hat you see is what you get and I will do my best to tell you what I know. I know she's a 1955 Chevrolet BelAir two door sedan with the post. Yes, he is verified as a BelAir, ot the lesser models. A true Belair that was stripped, utted and built to see the drags someday. This is a running, riving car, ou'll see that in the video available on my Facebook site at facebook.com/vivalasvegasautos and there are a bunch of loose parts that I hope to see go with the car as you will see in the pictures.

From the exterior, ou wouldn't think a dime was spent on this wild ride but if you peer underneath from the front to the back of the car, ou quickly realize that the builder of this Belair was intent on laying down some serious rubber. When you see the front suspension and boxed framework to the rear of the a car, ou see where the money went into the build. Tubed rear end with disc brakes front an rear and the coil over rear suspension is well done too. We don't know much about the engine other than it runs real well and lights the rubber up on the rear end...and those aren't skinny tires back there.

As you can tell this car has great ventilation. That means no glass is mounted on the car. If you're planning to drive this vehicle as it is, ou might want to bring a biker's helmet to keep the bugs out of your teeth. No really, here isn't much reason for thinking you might drive this onto anything other than a trailer or we can have it shipped. She will drive onto a trailer and do awesome burnouts in its current condition. I don't think the seats are even bolted down inside the car. Just look at all the pictures. We don't hide anything, n fact we show every inch of the car from top to bottom. You will know what you are looking at better than me more than likely but I am happy to answer any questions for serious buyers.

1955 Chevrolet Belair's have their place in history as early Muscle Cars. We had hoped to turn this car into a Gasser like the one on American Graffiti but it just keeps taking backstage to our other builds. So now you can bring it center stage and build the car of your dreams and have a ton of the important drive train work already done for you.

As you look under, ou will see that this car was built to run the strip and at this point to go any direction you want it to. We have some of the trim, ll used and in fair condition but obviously you would want it to be refinished to go on your build. We do have a rear glass window and the inside trim retainers for most of the glass. No side windows, e might have some plexiglass that came with it and it can go with the car too. We have some interior panels but I think you'd be better off buying new, hat we have is nasty. Really, hat I hope to point out here with this presentation, s to look at the pictures to know what you are getting. If you see it, ou get it. If you don't see it, hen you don't. She runs, he drives...actually pretty good too. She can lay down fat rubber when you stomp on the gas. And she brakes, hank goodness.

The story of this car can be summed up very simple...make it your dream build. I am just tired of seeing it wait in my yard to get done. There is a lot of money built into this car already that you want have too let alone, you're getting a 1955 Chevrolet Belair atop of this frame. If the right money is bid on this car, ou will have a lot to work with in the right direction.

Run down the road in your driving project car while you build it to be your show piece.

She's pretty solid. You'll see some of the minor rust areas below the car. We have detailed pictures of them so don't say you missed seeing them. We didn't miss them for you.

To repeat; this is a 55 BelAir two door sedan. Not the cheaper lower models. Headers, xhausts, ustom frame work for a rear tubbed suspension all there already.

Custom fuel cell, adjustable traction bars, hortened axles with disc brakes. All the goodies you'd hope for. At least a fantastic start to a fun build.

Chevrolet 350ci that we have not gone into to see what's been done, ut it runs strong and sounds great. Watch the video to hear it and see it perform.


Clean. Dry. Awesome.

To me, his rear end looks like the legendary Ford 9-inch rear-end. Hope you can figure it out better than I can.

A note from the owner.

I am a “used car dealer” but before that, I’m an automobile enthusiast. I love original rare and high quality modified vintage cars and over the past decade I’ve been in business, ave come to appreciate an expanding selection of high-demand, igh value vehicles. I specialize in and am always on the lookout for cars and trucks that were cherished by their previous owners. I have an experienced eye for quality but I’ve discovered that my preferred buyer can instantly discern such a vehicle and I have therefore, uilt my business and reputation around finding these kinds of cars for this type of customer. Super low miles and/or gentle ownership are strict requirements but a car must do something for me on a personal level if there is any hope of convincing you, he bidder, hat this is an above average,exceptionalvehicle. If nothing about the car excites me, t probably won’t do much for you either and I would soon be out of business.

With just seven family and alike employees and no sales people, realize how unusual a “dealership” like mine may at first glance appear. It has taken great care and effort to create such an organization and often, n unusually high investment in a particular car we are about to list. To sell the best it is critical to have a trusted experts in my corner. Alex Hoxsey our seasoned mechanic of 43 years, as my back. He and his crew can fixanything; from a low budget beater to the absolute most expensive exotic you can name, o job is too big and no small detail unimportant.Having worked years with Ford and GM dealers in Southern California was one of the dealers he worked for years ago and the list of Fords from Pintos to Shelby's have not missed his wrench. Exotics at Hollywood Sports Cars & Ferraris didn't miss wrench time with him either. The most exciting thing you can have as a dealer is a seasoned professional mechanic that loves his craft and takes extensive lengths to make anything he does right. They do an exhaustive 130 point inspection on each and every vehicle and nothing escapes their methodical investigation. Experience has shown that everything I spend making a car truly “right” will come back to me not only with a higher selling price, ut a happy customer that says good things about me. Moreover; it allows me, he owner and writer to describe the car with ease and confidence, omething that simply is not possible unlessItrust my advisors. If major issues are found or the cost of fixing the car the way it should be makes it too expensive to sell, y choice is an easy one. I simply absorb a few hundred dollars loss for my trouble and sell it at auction.

After the vehicle is fully sorted it encounters the detailed eyes of our shop team. They intern detail our cars until they are near factory production line roll-off condition. We try not to miss an inch anywhere, ut perfection is tough so there might be a piece of lint here and there. Next, comb over every inch, esearch its history and document originality and authenticity. Historical significance, arity, pecial features, ossible modifications and much more are used to accurately describe the vehicle with integrity and honesty. Most important for the potential buyer are the 100 to 150 high resolution pictures that my professional photographer son Skylar takes and at times I take some of these photos too. The pricey equipment we use would be right at home in the hands of the very best professional photographers in the world and I’ve developed a logical format that walks you around the entire vehicle with close-up shots of every square inch. We provide detailed views of the interior, nder the hood and then put it on a lift to show the undercarriage and confirm that the beauty of the car you are considering is not merely skin deep. Even our detailers are enthusiastic about the cars they so meticulously clean. This reconditioning can sometimes take several days and I’ve converted a paint booth, specially prepared for the professional clay bar and polishing each car lovingly receives.

Usually, ’ll also include a high definition video that shows the car doing its thing. If it’s a fast car, e film it going fast. If it’s a 4x4 you’ll see it crawling up a hill. In every case you will hear things like a rumbling exhaust, orking sound system and watch the temperature fall on a digital, aser thermometer pointed at an air conditioning vent. How many “dealers” will video a Lotus Esprit doing a buck-eighty? Wedo.

No “dealer,” on-line or in the real world, akes it to this level. No other seller or organization provides you, he buyer, ith so much information. I do this because it is the only way I can convince a person; often a world away, nable to touch or feel their purchase, hat my vehicle is for real and what I say is the truth. All the above is necessary for me to stay in business while keeping integrity intact. I want every buyer to be happy and Ineedglowing feedback on eBay. To accomplish that I need satisfied customers that are as thrilled with their purchase as I was when I bought it.

If you have any questions at all, lease call me on my cell at: 702-353-7500. If your inquiry is sincere and your offer serious, ou’ll find me the most accommodating business partner you’ve ever dealt with. If you call or e-mail asking for my reserve or “what is my bottom line” I will be looking for ways to politely end the conversation. Until you are ready to actually pull the trigger, will happily quote you the absolute highest nationally advertised suggested retail price I can find – a number we both know will not buy the car so, on’t waste your time, r mine. I am after all, “used car dealer.”

Serious buyers know the maximum they can offer. I then must simply decide if I can sell for that number.

If you hit the reserve, he decision is no longer mine. I must sell at that number.
