Description

NO RESERVE
CREATED IN 1987 BY A FAMOUS CANADIAN BUILDER BY THE NAME OF “JIM BAILEY” , THIS VEHICLE (FROM CALIFORNIA ORIGINALLY) HAS ONLY TRAVELED 43,000 MILES FROM NEW DUE TO IT'S MANY YEARS OF STORAGE. ALTHOUGH THE ORIGINAL BUILD WAS DONE AT THE END OF THE 80'S, THE CURRENT EVALUATION BY A PROFESSIONAL APPRAISER EXCEEDS $100,000. AND THAT IS LESS THAT WHAT IT WOULD COST TO DUPLICATE THE CAR TODAY. THE CAR WILL BE SOLD FOR A MUCH LESSER FIGURE THAN THE APPRAISAL.
THE MOTOR IS A REBUILT 1971 CHRYSLER 340, COUPLED TO A REBUILT 727 TRANSMISSION, WITH THE ORIGINAL PUSH BUTTON SELECTOR. IT FEATURES A 2” TOP CHOP FLIP FRONT END, BOXED UPPER FENDER/HOOD, AND CUSTOM FIREWALL. THE INTEGRATED FRONT AND REAR BUMPERS ARE FROM A 57 DE SOTO. IT HAS RECESSED SIDE PIPES, AND THE HOOD IS LOUVERED, AND FLARED TO HIDE THE WIPERS.
FINS WERE DE-CHROMED AND RAISED, GAS DOOR FILLED, AND A ROOF SCOOP ADDED FOR A THIRD BRAKE LITE. THE CAR HAS A 78 CARAVEL SUB-FRAME, GRAFTED TO THE ORIGINAL 57 FRAME, WITH TRANSVERSE TORSION BARS, ENGINE MOUNTS AND BORGESON STEERING SHAFT.
FRONT DISC BRAKES, REAR DRUM, WITH A 87 LE BARON DUAL MASTER CYLINDER POWER BRAKE BOOSTER. IT ALSO HAS A MULTI FUNCTIONAL TILT STEERING COLUMN. THERE IS AN A/C BOX BUT THE A/C WAS NEVER FULLY INSTALLED.
ALL ELECTRICS ARE 87 DAYTONA MAIN COWL HARNESS AND COMPLETELY UP TO DATE. FRONT GREY VELOUR BUCKET SEATS ARE POWER AND THE INTERIOR IS IMMACULATE. THIS CAR WAS STORED FOR MANY YEARS WHICH IS WHY THERE IS SO LITTLE MILEAGE. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THERE ARE MANY MORE PICTURES AND A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF PICTURES, LITERATURE AND HISTORY WITH REGARD TO THE CREATION OF THIS VEHICLE. IT WAS ALSO FEATURED IN THE BOOK PRINTED IN 1989 CALLED “TEX SMITHS CUSTOM CARS”. IT IS VERY WELL KNOW AND HIGHLY REGARDED, A GEM IN ANY COLLECTION.
THIS IS TRULY A ONE OF A KIND SHOW QUALITY CAR, WHICH WOULD BE OUTSTANDING AT ANY CRUISE OR CAR MEET. IT IS ALSO A WONDERFUL ROAD CAR THAT COULD TAKE YOU CROSS COUNTRY WITH NO WORRIES. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AUTOMOTIVE CUSTOM CAR HISTORY THIS ONE SURE FILLS THE BILL. PLEASE GIVE IT A HARD LOOK AND YOUR SERIOUS CONSIDERATION.
