This car was in CA it's whole life so it started as a real clean slate to build. The Chevy, Pontiac, Buick and Oldsmobile all shared similar styling and this was the larger of the 2 styles offered for 37 known as the sport coupe. The car still needs to be finished but I think one can see that all the hard & expensive stuff is completed. The car does run and drive currently. He has the firewall plate, Fisher body tag, a clear 1947issued title.

The body is very straight, there were some minor rust issues that were taken care of the right way during the restoration. The paint is is 2000 Indigo Blue and just needs a final polish. There are a couple of small flaws but will be cleared up with a final cut and polish. The headlight buckets were painted later and the guy messed up so they will need to sprayed again. The door handles have been shaved and the trunk has a manual remote entry. The doors have custom painted power mirrors. The firewall was smoothed and brake master is located on frame to keep it clean. The hood trim and grill were sanded and painted because it was his preference, could be chromed if desired. The belly has been sprayed with bed liner to make it easy to clean. It did get pictures underneath, he drove it down the street so we could put it on the lift. I see it needs a good cleaning and it's mostly dust from sitting. The front and rear were setup to not have bumpers, the rear valance has been reshaped with billet tail lights, license plate notch and notched for exhaust tips. There was also a spot cut out below the rear window for a 3rd brake light for safety. The doors have power window regulators installed and of course the remote latches. He has all the window trim for the car. There is no glass, it's all flat glass so any good auto glass shop can make it, you can have it made tinted if you like. The headlight parts finally were installed with 7" sealed beam.

The interior is still in raw form, it allows you to finish to your taste. The dash has been reworked to fit a nice wood panel and a set of Dakota Digital gauges. It has a 70's GM tilt column with column shifter and key switch. The area behind the seats has a custom cabinet to separate the trunk and also give a nice place for the fuse panel and engine computer. Of course it has a trunk mounted battery as you can see. The roof has been lined with Dyno-Mat so far. The wiring is mostly done, just needs the interior electrical finished. The Vintage Air w/ heat has the firewall plate installed but it needs to be plumbed and the interior parts installed, the kit is included with the car.

The engine and transmission are fresh rebuilds with no more than 20 miles on them. The engine is an 88 Chevy 350 w/ throttle body fuel injection and the transmission is a 700R4 automatic with 1 wire electronic lockup. The engine has an aluminum intake and valve covers, ceramic coated headers and billet air cleaner. The front and rear suspension is 1988 Jaguar XJ8, the original frame was reworked and boxed to make it more rigid. It has a large Walker radiator with temp controlled electric fan. The fuel tank was custom made with fuel pump, return line and pressure type cap and you can see in the pictures it has a custom filler location in the trunk. The brakes are 4 wheel disc, the brake booster and master are on the frame to keep the firewall clean. It rides on stock Jaguar wheels currently.

I think the pictures and my description will give a pretty good idea of what this car is, I'm sure I didn't list everything because there is so much. A lot of money and time was invested to get it this far and the owner of the car knows he won't see a return on all $$ + time invested. He also has a whole bunch of pictures, from the time he got thru most of the build.

There is a Buy-It-Now, you can also make an offer and I'll present any fair offers to him. I welcome inspections, the car is located in Fresno, CA (about 2 min from me) and can be viewed by appointment. The owner of the car has no interest in trades as he's planning a move to downsize. The winning bidder will receive a California title (from 1947) or a duplicate modern title can be procured if your state doesn't accept older CA titles, clear of any liens with the car. I can assist with arranging shipping to your location or make recommendations for shipping, of course it can be picked up in person after we have received funds. It does run, move, brake and steer for transport information. Thank you.
