1952 Chevrolet Coupe Additional Info:

As many hobbyists have discovered, ne of the best ways to get the cool old car of your dreams is to buy someone else's finished project. This 1952 Chevy coupe, or example, as completed just a few years ago and includes upgrades like a 327 cubic inch V8 and an overdrive transmission without losing its original look. So why waste months or years building yours when this one is available for such a reasonable price? Put your own spin on it and get out there and start having fun!You're in luck with this Chevy, ecause the work was quite well done, hich means very clean sheetmetal that has a classic early '50s look that still hadn't joined the jet age. A few body tweaks make it look unique, rom the nosed and decked hood to all the shaved trim, t definitely shows the work of a talented craftsman. The finish is quite good, ith a depth and shine that comes from careful prep and plenty of time invested on the back side with color sanding, uffing, nd plenty of TLC since it was finished. Basic black works well on any car from the early '50s, nd this one has an honest look that will certainly fool a lot of folks into thinking it's purely stock, hich was probably the builder's intention all along. After all, hy mess with a good thing? And the good news is that all the chrome remains in excellent shape and the stainless has been buffed up to look great, aking this one smartly dressed little coupe.The gray cloth interior offers a nice contrast to the black bodywork, nd nobody can argue that it doesn't look period-correct and it should wear like iron. Factory bench seats front and rear offer great comfort and support for long hauls, nd pleated door panels continue the factory vibe. The dashboard got smothered in a custom stainless fascia with the instruments being modern dials that have a distinctly vintage look. There's an under-dash A/C unit that seems to fit like it was born there, nd a modern tilt steering column uses a leather-wrapped wheel from a late-model. In the center of the dash there's a modern AM/FM/CD stereo head unit and a custom-built wood center console is there to hold your drinks. Pop the trunk and you'll find a very original-looking cargo bay, ight down to the rubber mat and original spare wheel with bias-ply tire.Plenty of power is on tap, ourtesy of a mid-60s 327 cubic inch V8, nd that's horsepower that'll never go out of style. Lots of chrome and billet aluminum, n Edelbrock intake and carb, nd an HEI ignition system give it modern looks and performance, nd things like the alternator and A/C compressor make it reliable. Smooth inner fenders and firewall provide a great backdrop for the engine itself, nd someone obviously spent some time making the plumbing and wiring look neat. The undercarriage is clean, nchored by a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and the stock rear end, hile the front suspension is pretty stock with a Saginaw power steering setup. Steel wheels with wire wheelcovers from a later Caprice Classic complete the look and are wrapped in 235/75/15 whitewall radials all around.A fun, eliable cruiser that has a ton of eyeball appeal. It's also affordable and ready to go. Why wait? Call today!
