The car still wears it original 1955 paint. complete with the odd scratch and spots of surface rust . I have carefully painted the roof and the portions of the wings where they were widened in an attempt to blend the old paint into the new. It has patina to die for and in my eyes it'd be a crime to paint it although that is obviously always an option for the future owner.

I bought this car from the builder and it has probably covered a couple of hundred miles since completion. I bought it after being out of the rodding scene for a long time and I must adnmit I absolutely love it. The problem is that since I've been playing around with it it has re ignited my desire so much i want to go drag racing again. much to my wifes disgust! I could race this but I know I'd end up pulling it apart to make it into a pure race car and that would be a crime. after all it is currently a very nice fully sorted Street Rod and I think it should stay that way.

It is correctly registered and obviously tax exempt. It does come with some spares including bumpers and the original headlamps.


Price wise I want £12000 for it . I'm located just outside Milton Keynes its available to view most evenings and weekends in a large heated well lit garage
