    This has been approximately a 10 year build. My dad purchased this car unfinished in 2011. The car was started in 2007 at a local restoration shop that went out of business.

    1954 Chevy Handyman wagon

    Full frame off restoration. Mild Hotrod build

    New front end with rack and pinion steering and disc brakes

    Camaro 10 bolt rear with eaton posi 3:55 gears and disc brakes

    All aluminum Turnkey 5.3 (327) LS with Camaro intake and ceramic exhaust

    Custom dual exhaust with crossover pipe

    New 700r4 trans

    Classic air conditioning

    Custom 2 tone paint with veneer wood inlay around the whole car

    Full custom interior from headliner to carpet. Complete dynomat sound barrier

    Full custom hidden audio system with hidden sub and amps in the back panels

    Full custom wood interior in the back loading area

    all the chrome and trim was polished, straightened, or re plated.

    18" Boss 338 rims with grey centers

    electric emergency brake

    The car has a custom wire harness and was completely re wired from front to back with late model gm fuses and connections.

    This car is the ultimate beech cruising rod. Has great power with good options and should be able to drive it wherever you want it comfortably.

    My dad was building it to take the grandkids cruising in it, but interests have changed and he is thinking about other things, so the car does not get driven. I think it has less than 1000 miles on it since it was running.

    There is allot of man hours and money invested and I'm sure he will take a big loss, looking to get $60k

    The car is located in San Marcos Ca. 92069 Call (760)802-6040 Scott

    Thanks for the compliments. My dad is a tinkerer and thought the wood finish in the back would look nicer than your typical interior finish. He is a pretty talented guy. I guess that's why i'm the way that I am, just not as patient!!
