1955 Chevy Two-Door Post Custom, Fresh Build, Gorgeous!

This is a completely restored 1955 Chevy post custom.  It was a body off restoration that was started years ago and completed in April 2013.  This is an elegant and nearly perfect build that was designed to be driven and enjoyed.  It can be shown or toured with as you wish.

It was bought by our client, Don, in February 2010 in Lake Elsinore, CA where it had been for more than a dozen years.  It was a relatively rust free body that was thoroughly media blasted and stripped.

Don started with powder coating the chassis and built it with nearly all CPP suspension and brakes.  The Chevy has 12 inch front rotors and 11 inch rear.  All the springs and suspension was replaced, again with CPC components.  The rear springs are TCI.  All the brake lines and fuel line are braided stainless steel.  The wheels are custom made for the car by Schott:  18×7 front and 18×8 rear.

The engine and transmission were completely rebuilt.  The engine is a 350 cu in with a high lift cam and the transmission is a 700R with a 2500 stall converter.  The radiator and gas tank are both custom made by Hot Rod City in San Bernardino, CA.  The gas tank is 23 gallons.  The wiring harness is all new as well as all the new tinted glass throughout.  The instruments are all Classic Instruments and the air conditioning is all Vintage Air.

The steering column is CPP and the steering box has been updated to a 500 series.

The body was media blasted and stripped of all prior paint, etc.  The body had very little rust reflecting what is likely a California car since new.  It was then sprayed with etching primer and painted in Omni single stage urethane paint.  It is painted in an elegant combination of Ivory and burnt orange (kindof a copper).  Don added all new trim replicating a 210/Bel Air.   The paint and bodywork is gorgeous!

The interior was all done by Don.  He worked in a trim shop over 20 years ago and it is beautiful.  All the seat faces are leather with accents in ostrich.  The entire interior, doors and trunk is lined with dynamat.

The car has less than 1,000 miles since its build and looks as-new.  For more details please call Harry at 951.901.5088 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com.
