1675316754167551675616757167581675916760I just finished this beautiful 58 Restomod. I have the car in preliminary staging for the Barrett Jackson W. Palm auction in Mar, but thought that I would put it out for sale to see if there was any interest ahead of the auction. Asking price is 150K. Here is a little more info:

THIS CAR HAS A CLEAR FLORIDA TITLE, AND THERE IS NO REPRODUCTION FIBERGLASS. IT HAS ALL ORIGINAL GM BODY PANELS. Body work was done using only the best materials. PPG global epoxy primer is at the base, with PPG Deltron Mercedes crystal laurit silver, and PPG glamor clear coat. Body panels are straight, and the fitment and plane are perfect. ALL AREAS OF THE CAR ARE FINISHED TO SHOW LEVEL. Under the hood, firewall, and under the trunk and decklid. The underbody is finished with Lizard skin ceramic and sound deadner, for a cool quite ride. Bottom is painted with PPG Deltron dark grey basecoat, and clearcoated.
