Over $8,000 recently invested in upgrades. My goal with this build was to keep the 1955 looking period correct to the 60's and 70's. The car runs and drives absolutely amazing with the upgraded brake, steering, and suspension system. The motor pulls strong. The new exhaust sounds awesome. The new automatic transmission shifts perfectly. The 1955 Chevy Sedan delivery is a very rare car. There were only a hand full of these cars made and fewer that have survived and exists today, especially in this condition. I am regretfully selling this car out of my collection as I need more room. One of the best original old school hot rod 55 Chevy Sedan Delivery's on the market. Clean title in hand.
