Hood corners were rounded, Lake pipes were molded into the fenders, custom skirts were installed. The doors and trunk are remote. Has dummy spotlights, DeSoto grill and 1955 Pontiac side trim. Custom design was molded into the hood. The mirrors have turn signals built in. Then it was given a slick black paint job and some hand pinstriping. The chrome it has is bright. Glass is tinted. Has big fat radial white wall tires and the hub caps are so cool, look like they are right out of Grease Lightening.
INTERIOR: Man that red pops. It's a Cadillac interior, both seats have 6 way power. The dash is all custom with a full set of new gauges, a tachometer is mounted on the column. It is a tilt column with a custom wheel. The shift is on the floor with a cool devil's head knob. Side panels are upholstered to match the seats. Has new carpet and matching floor mats.

Bottom of the motor has chrome oil pan and flywheel cover. There's a high torque starter. Has chrome pan on the turbo 350 automatic trans. New dual exhaust with glass pack mufflers. It's really clean under this car.
I could easily see it costing well over $100,000 to have a shop build a car like this. A customer was just in my office, he said just the paint materials for his Road Runner was $6,200. All the custom body work on this car and the paint job would cost $30,000 or more. This is a turn key car ready to turn heads!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.

About Volo Auto Museum No other collector car dealer has been in business longer than the Volo Auto Museum. Owned and operated by the Grams family since 1960. We are the only collector car dealer that has 4 generations of experience with buying, selling and consigning classic autos. For our family, classic cars are more than a business, it is a passion. Over the decades, we have maintained a reputation for dealing with integrity as proven with our high reviews and A+ rating with the BBB. Buying a classic car can be exciting, but also stressful. We want to take the stress out of your buying experience by allowing you the time and tools you need to get to know the car you are interested in before making your investment, not after. Unlike auctions, we allow test drives, 3rd party inspections, the use of our shop and car lift. No reasonable request will be turned down. Selling a car can be equally stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. After reviewing your quality collector car, we will discuss the options we have available to you and let you decide what works best for you. We have cash available for immediate sales and we also offer a consignment program that surpasses anyone else’s. Unlike percentage based programs with fees; we work with a no fee, net to owner. This allows us the opportunity to treat and market your car as if it were our own. We invest approximately $1500 of our own money into marketing your car, which means if it doesn’t sell, we lose, not you. So, we are more aggressive in selling your car!
