This is an excellent driver restomod car good enough to show.

I purchased the car in September of 2004. The engine had been completely rebuilt by the prior owner in May of that year. I had a complete nut & bolt frame-off done on the car that was completed in 2005. Both frame and body were sand/bead blasted. A few panels had rust spots so they were replaced with new panels. The car was completely re-built. The only items that I can remember that were not replaced were the engine, ear end and driveshaft. Everything inside, utside and under were replaced with new parts. I can provide a complete listing of all items. A few items of chrome were in decent shape so they were refurbished – the rest replaced with new. I have put 8,650 miles on the car since it was completed in 2006. Actual mileage unknown.

The car is painted 2001 Prowler Orange Metallic with Ice Pearl metal flake in 2 coats of Clear, overed with 2 more clear coats. It is unique and absolutely gorgeous. You need sunglasses to drive it!

Full disclosure…

  • Paint flaw - 2 lighter colored parallel lines on trunk lid – see picture.
  • There are a few tiny road chips. You have to really look to find them and are normal for 8,000 miles.
  • Windshield wipers do not work correctly. One of the cables stripped out years ago. I don’t drive in rain so never fixed them.
  • Air Conditioner quit working several years ago. I never looked into it as I never use it - Tri-Five Chevy hardtops (no post) should be driven windowed down!

No trades. Please do not ask for my reserve price. I have set a fair reserve that is far below what I have into the car. I love my 56, ut it is time to move on to another project.
