Full custom 1952 Chevrolet 2 door coupe:

Body: Very nice chopped top, glass is perfect even the hard to get and expensive front round windshield. Suicide doors that work on a key fob or while sitting inside the car. Smoothed off bumpers front and back, multi tooth corvette grille, decked hood and trunk, Cadillac tail lights frenched in to the body, twin antenna’s frenched in to the body. Dual fuel tanks, new original style in the stock location and an aftermarket one located inside the trunk, switch in the dash to switch between the 2, no need to stop driving with this much fuel capacity. The interior is red in color with bucket seats and a Budweiser shifter for the cruiser look. Tilt chrome steering column and very nice gauge cluster and an under dash air conditioning unit that blows very cold. The paint is ok, not show finish and does have a few chips here and there but it is a car that you can park and not worry about someone leaning against it.

Chassis and drivetrain: Up front is a Heist style independent suspension with tubular A-arms top and bottom with dropped spindles, steering is via power rack and pinion. Disc brakes on all 4 wheels with drilled and slotted rotors in the front. Master cylinder is located on the frame for a clean look under the hood, it is manual brakes and probably should have a booster installed for even easier brake engagement but the manual works fine. Rear end is a 10 bolt chev unit again with disk brakes. The engine is a rebuilt Vortex 350 chev that runs perfectly and extremely smoothly. Polished aluminum and chrome parts everywhere as shown in the pictures, such as valve covers, intake manifold, headers, radiator, air cleaner, external reservoirs, A/C compressor, single wire alternator, water pump, various brackets and etc. Aluminum radiator with a thermostat electric fan keeps the engine very cool and never heats up. Transmission is an automatic and shifts smoothly. This is a very nice running car that idles low and smooth and has a very nice sounding dual exhaus, you really need to watch the video and hear it run, it sounds great.

This car is a great car to take cruising and to use, it is not perfect and with all customs there are things to do, they are never really finished. I would redo the interior as the door panels are worn, there is no headliner, the seats are a take out of something, for $2,000 you can have the complete interior done, I was going to go white tuck n roll for the fifties style look. The wheels and tires look good but not really the style for this car, one of the center caps is missing, it really needs chrome steelies for that classic custom look. The door sils are chrome but they are scratched and the passenger side is damaged and should be replaced. The rear fender well trim is not on the car and I do not have it. The beltline stainless is ok, there are a few dings here and there on some of the pieces and should come off and the dings removed and re-polished. This is a driver and something to tinker with as you use it. All the right parts are on the car and for what I am asking you can’t even buy the parts, nevermind all the endless hours of custom work.



Thanks for looking. Jim 559.349.1188
