PROF BUILT 383 STOKER, RESTO-MOD, NASSAU BLUE W/GHOST FLAMES, SHOW-STOPPER!
If you're a fan of wagons (and who isn't these days?), then this unusual and rare 1958 Chevy will definitely light your fires. A pro-built resto-mod, it offers incredible style, impressive performance, and a ton of performance. Want to stand out at the next cruise-in? This is the car you need.
1958 was a 1-year-only body style, and nowhere is that more apparent than on the classic station wagon. From the big Cadillac-looking front end to the dramatically flared quarter panels and chrome-laden tailgate, this car offers everything that we've come to love about the fabulous '50s. The bodywork was expertly refinished and now wears a coat of brilliant Nassau Blue. Look a little closer and you'll find subtle ghost flames on the nose, so cleverly done that they don't even show up in our photographs (I assure you, they're there). Tens of thousands of dollars were invested in the chrome and stainless restoration, but it pays off with a glittering symphony of brightwork that really pops off the blue paint. Details like the hash marks on the front fenders, the trim that curls around the single round taillight, and the massive grille are all Chevy trademarks that endured throughout the '50s. The glass is all new and carries a smoke tint that adds to the wagon's ultra-sleek look.
This car is fresh and impeccably dressed inside. The work is on the custom embroidered power buckets is downright impressive, and as you can see the colors are well-chosen and compliment each other nicely. A custom center console with beautiful striped wood sides (an effect that continues to the cargo area) holds the shifter, A/C controls, and auxiliary gauges, while a tilt column carries a wood-rimmed Grant steering wheel. The original instrument panel is still in place, along with a neatly integrated tach just under the AM/FM stereo radio in the dash. The back seat has been upholstered to match, the headliner is new, and custom door panels tie it all together quite neatly. And like I said, the wood-lined cargo area is a work of art-wow!
Horsepower is not a problem, either, thanks to a 383 cubic inch stroker small block. Professionally built, it features a full roller valvetrain, aluminum heads, and a Holley intake and carburetor. Dressed up with plenty of polished billet and chrome, including a serpentine belt drive for the accessories, it delivers big power in a compact package that fits in the Chevy's engine bay without issues. Chevy Orange paint gives it a link to the past, but everything else is neat, tidy, and thoroughly up to date. It's backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic with a 3500 RPM stall converter and a 3.73-geared 9-inch rear end. 4-wheel discs and a lowered suspension make it more than competent when the road starts to twist, and the oversized Torque Thrusts look great sitting inside 255/45/17 performance radials.
An incredible hauler poised to collect trophies, and perhaps the only car capable of carrying even the largest ones home. Call today!
