Purchased from previous owner who had the car commissioned by the Famoso Speed Shop in CA. It has been driven less than 10 miles since I acquired the car 2 years ago.
Car has approx 500 miles total driving since its restoration and fabrication from a 82K mi original body.After buying,I decided to invest in several cosmetic and performance upgrades from the original build, and have not driven the vehicle since they were completed. All improvements have "Zero" miles on them. This car has been a 100% garage queen for the past several years. As you can see, it's in beautiful show car condition. I must stress that while it is a fabulous 1-off show car, it has a history of being street driven, therefore it's always subject to the unavoidable rock chip. The car isn't as 100% flawless the day it left Famoso, but it's still very, very close. I've owned many high end hot rod builds over the years, and this car is my all time favorite! Since switching out ignition, the tach still needs to be hooked up, and the gas gaugemay need a new sending unit (not registering properly). Otherwise the car is perfect!The suspension in front will likely need to be adjusted and alignment tweaked, again there are 0 miles on the upgrade.
There are 2 high quality music videos that you may watch (4k) that will cover the entire car and show you way more than I saw when I bought it. It looks as good in person as it does in these videos. As you are likely aware, a build of this caliber would cost way over $100K and take years to complete. Offered for $75k with extras.
Buy it now price includes 1955 color matched custom hood with t-bird scoop that came with the car, as well as an aluminum L-88 style port matched intake, Holley 850 double pumper, Accel HEI distributor. Also includes an additional 1955 Chevy hood I acquired that has a teardrop cutout in it. I planned to modify the cutout in hood to show the whole top of the motor. This hood will require additional modification and painting prior to use. Hood hinges (prior to billet hinges) that came with car are also included, they are very nice.
