216 six with 3-on-the-tree manual.
First put into service 12/1950.
Mostly all original.
I purchased this years ago from a drummer of a band in Seattle. It was his daily driver to gigs, and shortly after was my daily driver. It has been a lot of fun over the years.
It was spray painted primer black and gold when I purchased it. Body is fairly straight and I recently touched up the black primer because the Arizona sun eats it away quickly. Ready for a quick sand and repaint to your liking! Was originally metallic blue. Some rust in typical spots, mainly driver door and under rear fenders. But trunk and everywhere else looks to be decent.
Has a dual carb / dual exhaust setup. You probably will want the exhaust re-welded to align it better. I recently fixed a cracked exhaust manifold, and the replacement had a slightly different twist to the flanges. It has dual pipes with cherry bombs. Starts easy, runs ok, smokes a little sometimes, but not any more than any of the original 1950 Chevrolet commercials showed they did.
Also, recently put in new starter. Battery is good, and it had been converted to 12v some time in its past.
Just put on brand new tires. Less than 5 miles on them. Almost $500 right there!
Speedo worked at one time, then became fussy. Not sure what happened.
Lights work, turn signals work.
Someone lowered the rear suspension with lowering blocks.
Fender skirts are in good condition and are functional.
Should get a service soon, you will need to check over the brakes, fluids, etc. because it has basically sat for the last two years. Probably could use a tune up and carb adjustment, which here I have to do every winter and summer to make the idle speed right between seasons.
Interior is almost all original, has basic seat covers to cover the original seats. The front and rear dash have been covered in a tasteful blue tiger stripe fabric. Still has both sunvisors.
Missing radio, and I think the old vacuum wiper system is there but not functional. There is vent tubing, and an possibly an old heater core in the trunk. In Arizona, never think about heaters, so I never looked into it.
Should be an easy start for a good lowrider, bomb or whatever. I don't think it will take much to make it a reliable daily driver again.
Around here $2k gets you the same car, but all in pieces and not running. This is a running car with a dressed up Offenhauser motor!
FINE PRINT: Sold, AS-IS, how it sits right now, because it is an older classic car. No warranties or promises of anything. As with any used car, you should plan to have it serviced and inspected yourself before you use it. I tried to make it clear for all the things that matter, but it is your responsibility to know what you are buying. Pre-inspection is okay on appointment because I am not always with the car. Please take a good look at the photos and videos and ask questions before bidding. I reserve the right to cancel the auction for any reason, including listing errors and erroneous bidders.
MORE FINE PRINT: Winning bidder to pay $500 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit at end of auction. I do this because of people that think this is a game and it has cost me money. Balance of payment is due within 7 days after of end of auction, only by CASH in person transacted at my bank, or certified cashiers check by mail. Once funds have cleared my bank, I will give you clean Arizona title, by hand or FedEx overnight to you. I can hold the vehicle locked in a garage for up to two weeks so you can make arrangements for shipping. Vehicle is located in Mesa, Arizona zip 85205.
