DRIVER '51 poncho kustom. infact the car has just gotten back from a 3 week service. rebuilding the front OE suspension components & drive line. we sourced a extremely low mile steering box/column that was fully serviced. greased. nbsp;and resealed. very tight. along with that. all NOS control arm bushings. pins. & tie rod ends were swapped in for the old. the front end was re-aligned. wheels re-balanced. and everything tightened & trued. we put in a new. heavy duty u-joint as well and serviced the rearend's fluid. motor oil was recently changed. coolant levels are fresh. and even the belt driven AC compressor for the air system. serviced. the brake shoes were replaced and a full fluid flush. this thing is ready to drive!it's no garage queen. tho it does spend every night protected in one and is more than show worthy. it's taken to every classic show in Northern California with much love & respect from the scene. the entire car was built from the ground up. I've owned in since it was a bone stock. all original car. the entire drive train has been gone thru. upgraded. and/or rebuilt. the motor is a 283 60's vette. race ready. custom built monster. now 292 after machine work. completely taken down and rebuilt. has less than 6k miles on it. it's got a lumpy cam. forged pistons. and a killer 4-jet carb that roars when it's opened up to it's optional straight pipe lakes. when it pulls into any show. no person can't stop and look for what the sound is coming from. the motor alone is a $10k+ build. done old school. the way it was in 60's hot rod days with quality US made NOS and reclaimed or rebuilt GM parts. list is endless we can go over it in person. from the glass bowl fuel filter. the GM ram horns. ignition. the finned covers from the 60's. etc. the transmission was fully gone thru and rebuilt as well. 4 speed with overdrive. adapted to the original column shifter. the rear end is the original and fully rebuilt. with custom driveshaft and has been four-linked for a smooth drive at ANY ride height. the suspension is a full custom job. with front and rear manual adjustability. it's been bagged in a simple way. that fits the built of this car. one of the most unique features. is that this does not use your typical loud 12volt compressors. rather a near silent belt driven compressor. originally designed for air conditioning. heavy duty custom shocks/mounts front to back. quality bags. and custom perches. even a reinforced rear cross member after being notched & tunneled. it's a lowrider and drives all the way down if you want. has great clearances all the way up. and looks fantastics when slammed down on the side pipes. original glass all around. working AM radio. interior dome light. all gauges. speedo. exterior lighting (yes the indian head lights up) and even vacuum wipers. car is converted to 12volt. the clock is disconnected and set at 5 o'clock (needs to be gone thru. works but get's hung up) because of obvious reasons. the interior is a full kustom job. have a look. it turned out unreal. everything is pleated. in hard to find zodiak sparkle vinyl. original creme headliner goes perfect with the warm & classic feel. the creme seats are accented with red sparkle back and firewall pad. blood red crushed velvet carpet all piped with matching floor mats. trunk is fully upholstered to match too. false walls hide the air tank and optima battery. has a hidden kill switch and stash bin noone would find. the paint is near perfect. original colorway. but a respray. again it's a driver. but it's also well cared for. no cancer. no dents/dings/issues. the roof is metallic navy with a very unique translucent flake. with a ton of clear. it pops in the shade. not the sun. pretty kool. the chrome is all original and has a patina that works with the car. all pieces and stainless are intact. along with some additions and modification you can read about in the mod list above. it's a car very dear to me. unlike any of my projects before. but I think it's time to move onto a new project. I have a TON of time. money. and effort into this build. the quality and overall feel of this project. mixed with the rarity of a clean pontiac like this what makes the car so special. it's a mild custom. with old bomb queues. and kustom flare. the combo is something people really get a kick out of. it's classy and badass at the same time. this isn't a rattle can. thrown together. over the top car. it's reliable. meant to be used. driven. and shown. and can easily take you across country as the vehicle/transportation it is. the car is everything you want it to be. I'm in the Bay Area. CA and can show it any time you want. I will help you in arranging shipping if need be. on your dime/efforts. AFTER the payment is made and cleared. if you have ANY other questions please TEXT or EMAIL me. would consider a trade PLUS cash for a 1959 Buick or 1960 Pontiac (coupe or wagon only)please review the full list above. I think I got nearly everything covered. ---=ACCEPTING OFFERS: 916. 501. 2085=---a few older shots form the Stance|Works feature. again this is BEFORE the motor swap and 2nd (lower) phase of the suspension overhaul:---and a few full-resolution shots of my favorites from the most recent shoot. as it currently sits: ---sled. lead. streamliner. torpedo. chief. nbsp;delux. nbsp;hardtop. shaved. chop. chopped. slammed. bagged. nbsp;hamb. ford. oldsmobile. old. nbsp;merc. mercury. rat
