Not Sold at a High Bid of $48,000
This is a spectacular example of one of the most desirable convertibles of the 50's. Starting with a California body, a complete frame off restoration was performed and finished off with new chrome and two tone blue over white exterior. Since its complete refurbishment, the owner has also held the car to a rigid maintenance schedule. Engine rebuilt 500 miles ago. To ensure its continued service, the automatic transmission was overhauled at the same time with nearly 2,500 dollars spent including new cooler lines. The careful maintenance program has also meant the replacement of a ball joint, a windshield and a power window motor. In short, thousands have been spent on this car to keep it right and that's on top of the restoration. Featuring dual exhaust, radio, fender skirts, matching interior, wide white walls, power steering, power brakes and added seatbelts, this is one investment that will be a joy to drive as well.
