Please make sure you have financing set up or cash in the bank before bidding. JJ Best Banc & Co has financing of classic cars but you have to set that up prior to bidding.
I have a 54 Chevy Belair for sale. It was a complete frame off, nut and bolt restomod going on for a few years now. This was a driving restoration done in stages. Here is a list of most of the mods done. I'm sure I'm forgetting quite a few minor stuff. I drive this car 3-4 times a week just for errands and cruises so this car is by no means a $100k car and kept on a trailer. This thing drives like a modern car. No more carb tuning. Did I mention this thing is FAST!!! Close to 300hp at the rear wheels on the dyno.
New bright red paint by Classic Auto Restorations. Not a show quality paint job as this car was meant to be driven daily.
Rechromed front & rear bumper and grill
I have 99% of the chrome trims on the car. The few I don't have, they make reproductions. Most of it was polished years ago but should go through another good polishing.
Door handles have been shaved.
Mostly new rubber all around.
Windshield and side windows are all new.
17in Torq Thrust wheels and tires.
The underside of the body has been rubber coated so the rocks would just bounce off.
I have the rear fender skirts but not installed
Dash was cut to fit a 55 Chevy gauge cluster. Needs some touch ups as some paint was chipped off and paint drips. It has the Dakota digital gauges and the 55 chrome trim mounted.
New chrome tilting steering column with key, turn signals, and emergency flashers.
New steering wheel.
Lokar gas pedal with TCI brake system and pedal
Reupholstered door panels all around.
Front and rear seats are custom fitted from a 2009 Cadillac CTS. Front seats are powered. All of the lumbar support, move forward and back, up and down functions work on the seats. Rear seats fits amazing and they fold down to have access to the trunk or for the car to transport long items. (I've been to Home Depot to buy 2x4s with the seats folded down) the center console is also from the 09 Cadillac CTS with the shifter
The carpet kit is brand new but still needs a headliner. It comes with new stock Cadillac CTS floor mats also.
The whole interior metal was painted with Rust Bullet to inhibit rust.
The whole interior and doors have been rolled w/ Dynamat to reduce noise.
The trunk needs a carpet kit but is already Dynamatted.
Suspension, Steering, & Brakes:
The whole frame is reinforced and powder coated by Olympic Coating with TCI crossmember and suspension parts.
TCI Mustang 2 front end with tubular upper and lower A arms powder coated fabricated by Sweet Enlow customs.
Dropped spindles w/ QA1 Coilovers all around
TCI 4 link rear suspension
Power rack and pinion steering
Powerbrakes with a dual master cylinder
TCI firewall brake mount and lever
12in power Disc brakes all around with all new brake lines installed by Sweet Enlow customs
2006 5.3 ls1 engine tuned (low mileage)
Engine tuned by Excelsior Motorsport with Dyno sheet
PSI computer and wiring harness
4l60e trans w/ upgraded servo kit by San Marcos Transmission
10 bolt posi rear with 3.07 Auburn gears by Sam Marcos Transmissions
Champion 3 row aluminum radiator
Custom cold air intake built by JBA
Hooker headers with a Full custom JBA built exhaust system and dual Flowmaster mufflers
Driveshaft built by Driveline San Diego
New Tanks inc. gas tank with all new stainless fuel lines installed by Sweet Enlow customs
All plumbing lines are either stainless braided, stainless tubing or rubber but was all new when initially installing.
Most fitting were either by Earl's or speedway.
New EZ wiring harness from front to the rear of the car.
Stock Denso H.I.D. Headlight kit (not cheap aftermarket)
Yellow top Optima Battery
Dakota Digital VHX instrument cluster for a 55 Chevy
Upgraded bright LED brake and reverse lights (reverse lights need to be hooked
I have invested hundreds of hours into this car over the years along with about $45k into the car in parts and labor. This car is not a show car. It has imperfections so if you want a show car, look elsewhere. I drive it almost daily so it will have its usual wear and tear. The car is lowered but you can raise it to stock height by adjusting the coilovers. I'm off to new toys. Thanks and feel free to ask any questions. No trades unless you have BMW or an Audi of higher value.
I can assist with shipping the car but you are liable for all charges.
