"Only 1,049 made total! 2,000 hours were spent restoring this car to look like a piece of mechanical jewelry. Only 11 miles since finished.
1957 saw a complete redesign resulting in this lower, sleaker car with fins that sweep upwards. Referred to as ""The most glamorous car in a generation"". 1957 also saw 2 major mechanical innovations: Torsion Air ride and a 3-speed automatic transmission.
EXTERIOR: How can you top this? If this doesn't impress I don't know what will! It is restored beyond factory specifications. The body is literally laser straight, every square inch. There's zero rust, zero damage. Repainted gorgeous Indian Turquoise is polished like glass. Every piece of chrome and trim is restored to show quality. All new glass with rechromed frames. Bright white power top. We just installed brand new radial whitewalls and wire wheels. The correct hubcaps in pristine shape are included too.
INTERIOR: Just as pristine as the exterior. It is restored to high standards right done to the small details. A very unique feature is the push button transmission where the neutral switch is the starter button. The dash area is like art work: beautiful gauges and gold knobs. It also features power windows and seat.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: This is mechanical jewelry! Every single component is refinished, polished, restored and detailed like brand new. The heart of it is a 392 Hemi making 325 hp and 440 lbs of torque! It has the raw fiberglass heater box, anodized power brake booster, correct hose clamps and stickers. It even has the Mopar washer fluid bag and a reproduction battery.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Inside this ginormous trunk is completely restored. The turquoise is painted as slick as the exterior. It has the complete liner kit including the carpeted floor and side panels. The latches, stickers, weather strip look like new. The white wall spare has never been used. The rim and jack are restored like new and secured properly.
UNDERSIDE: This is one of the cleanest undercarriages we may have ever had. The body was off the frame and literally every component was restored and detailed. The chassis with stripped and painted semi-gloss black. The floors are pristine, clean smooth metal painted satin black. It has the correct dual exhaust system with mufflers and resonators. The fuel system was completely replaced. All the suspension and steering was rebuilt. The brake system was restored, e-brake is hooked up. Bottom of the motor is spotless. The Torqueflite 3-speed automatic trans looks like new. The driveshaft and rear end were restored.
SERVICE: We inspected the car and tightened the power steering belt, rebuilt the carburetor, changed the oil, resecured the visor, rebuilt the fuel gauge, replaced the sending unit, lubed the window track, installed new tires and wheels.
I deal with some incredibly nice cars and this one is among the best you'll find anywhere in the world!
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.
**These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership.
