This is a famous old El Paso streetrod with a history stemming back from the 1970's. It's set up inside to look like a "Lowrider" I suppose. I didn't do it but it's cool nonetheless. Even complete with a chandalier and a refrigerator. Swivel seats too. Sort of a chick magnet although I am too old and too married to appreciate that part of the car. Note the license plate below from 1977. The last year it was registered.
The paint is currently bad. Weather and cracking and will need a redo for show quality. The chrome is in excellent shape.
It started out with a snorting chevy 396 but has been detuned with a 4.3 V6...decent power with good fuel economy. The engine has very few miles on it. It also has power brakes, power steering, auto transmission (GM350), and is set up for air conditioning as well. AND IT RUNS AND DRIVE GREAT.
It runs and drives AMAZINGLY WELL. No shakes or shimmies..tracks true.
The front end is a nice setup with a Mustang 2 front end which probably is the reason for the stable ride. It has power disc brakes in front and the brakes are Great.
It has electric widows...cool. All the glass is in good shape. It's a great car as is and can be turned into a big $$$ car with very little extra work.
I would be interested in another classic car or streetrod trade. Also interested in a motorcycle trike or great motorcycle. Not interested in chopper...sorry.
Or I will sell outright for $17,500 or best offer.
The car is located in El Paso, TX and as usual I can be reached at 915*276*1505
