Up for Auction: LOW FAIR RESERVE !!!
DRIVETRAIN: factory Hemi 354 V8 runs and sounds good.
Matted to it is the factory auto trans and the pushbutton set up still
works pretty well and simple to use. I took the covers off the
valve covers for a much cooler look. They come with the car but
are in the trunk (along with some other extra parts for the car)
Very original and unmolested under the hood. No weird noises
or smoke coming from the engine.Trans shifts fine too. It may
need a minor tune up, but as for now, It starts all the time with
the key and Ive driven it all over town a few times. It may need
a new brake master and the brakes bled. I say this because the
first push of the brake pedal is soft when coming to a stop, after
that, the 2nd and 3rd feel normal and the car stops fine then.
If you know what to expect, its not bad driving it. Im not breaking
any speed limits either while tooling around town.
INTERIOR: take a look at the pics. Mostly original and yes a bit dry,
AZ and time shows normal wear n tear, but Im sure the seats where
redone at one time. Pretty original and mostly complete.
Doors open and close fine, but at least 2 of the outter
chrome door handles are broken. The inner handles work fine.
The glass all looks to be good
and windows rolls up and down fine. Some pitting on the chrome
inside. Typical when these cars are parked with little
to no circulation and the heat. All the gauges seem to work properly
except for the fuel level, not sure why.
EXTERIOR: the body very straight for its age, but this is a 90%
rust FREE survivor. All the sheetmetal looks to be original from
1956, at least from what I can tell. Originally the car was blue but
it was painted the red/white scheme back in the 80s. Chrome didnt
fair too well on the bumpers, but the stainless trim looks good.
The front grill and surrounds look to be in pretty nice shape too.
Rust or rot I should say is almost non existent on the body.
Much nicer by comparison to most Mopars this old living on the
Eastcoast. Blinkers and all the exterior lites seem to be working
fine. I saw rot coming thru in one place, think it was the pass
side lower rear rocker. See pics. While under the car, didnt see any
rot, just some suface rust mostly.
SUSPENSION: the suspension looks normal from what I can see
Just your basic factory set up front and rear.
Drum brakes all around. No wacky mods and surface rust at
best. Makes coming apart a breeze. Rides pretty nice going down
the road too. No spare in trunk, and 1 tire is a mismatched black
wall that prob should be replaced. The other 3 should be fine for
Minimal rust under the car
making taking this car apart, almost a breeze !!
Check out ALL the pics below - -->
it may take a full minute for them all to load if you have a
slow connection, so be patient AND looks for the extra scroll
bar on the right side.
Az gets maybe 12 a yr of rain and Az very dry climate.
more info AFTER the pics etc. There are 100 large pics.
There you go, probably The BEST represented Mopars on Ebay.
Shows you all the good as well as any bad.
We put a lot of time and effort in marketing our cars.
People wait months for a car this solid to come up for sale
and even if you have to pay shipping to your area, it still beats
paying a body shop to hopefully fix a rusty car for weeks.
Having as much as the original steel on a non restored car these
speaks volumes. Survivors are getting harder to find !
Also, if you buy a car thats been restored, who knows what surprises are hidden under new paint or thick undercoating.
People are flipping cars all the time when most of the jobs are
fast, for a quick buck and quality suffers.
Email us with ANY questions before you bid please
Our Impeccable FEEDBACK speaks for itself. We show you as
much feasibly possible via pics.
Dont let auctions with little to no pics try to fool you.
If they cant take the time to take pics of important
areas under and over the car they are selling, maybe
its not the best car to buy long distance. OURS IS !
With other auctions, you really dont know what to expect
until you take the car apart. While we go over our cars
with great pics to help making your decision easier.
Along with ANY other questions you may have.
Email me for a quote for shipping estimate.
