1955 Two Door Station Wagon Street Rod, Custom, Pro Street, Pro Touring, Hot Rod on 2040-cars
Leighton, Alabama, United States
Up for sale is a custom 2 door 1955 Chevy Wagon street rod I bought out of southern California.
This car was built for Audiobahn to showcase their stereo equipment at car shows and the body on restored car looks amazing! It was featured in magazines and I have one that will sell with the car. Featured are Audiobahn 18 inch subs with ten speakers total. In the back are three amps powering the speakers and there is a new Kenwood KDC 448U tuner.
A lot of subtle changes have been made during the build process (note the quarter windows are taken out). I was told the paint and body work was $15,000.00 and I have no reason to doubt that. Time was taken making the body seams align properly. The chrome and stainless look perfect with no patina. All the rubber looks new, no rattles and the doors close better than any car I've owned. There is a patch panel on the driver side floor board, otherwise it is rust free under the car.
My wagon rolls on Colorado Customs 18" rims with BF Goodrich 245-40-18 tires in great condition. The car has been lowered giving it just that right stance. Colorado Customs also built a matching steering wheel mated to an ididit steering column.
You'll have power rack and pinion steering, power disc brakes and power windows. The interior is black leather. A B&M shifter shifts the 350 turbo trans that is mated to a 350 engine that is well dressed with polished intake, new Holley carb, polished alternator and a polished air conditioner compressor (not hooked up). March serpentine belt and pulleys turn the accessories.
An aluminum radiator with electric fan keep the car cool with no problems over heating.
The ride is very smooth, stops great with the disc brakes and the motor runs strong.
I have the car insured for $40,000.00 and it's worth it. Buy this one at a fraction of what it's worth. I'm not looking to trade. I can no longer drive to car shows and the car is just sitting in the garage.
You can reach me at 256-446-9646 or 256-412-3824. I will help in loading the car or maybe meet you half way if it's not too far.
I would seriously consider enclosed transport.....the car is that nice!
Bid with confidence. The car is exactly as listed. Draw a crowd wherever you stop. If you buy the car you will not be dissapointed.
On Jun-17-14 at 20:58:16 PDT, seller added the following information:
The turn signals haven't been hooked up after the steering column was installed. I've had 2 neck surgeries and can't get under the dash to hook it up. Sorry this wasn't in the original listing.

Someone was bound to receive a free 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray during the Super Bowl XLVII festivities; it just wasn't who we thought it was going to be. Despite a report back in December that superstar Beyoncé Knowles would be getting an all-new Corvette during her halftime performance, that turned out not to be the case. Joe Flacco, starting quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, did in fact win a Corvette for his MVP performance.

So what transpired that prevented Beyoncé from rolling on stage in the new Chevrolet? Anyone who knows isn't telling, but according to Yahoo! Autos, General Motors said that for one reason or another a deal "did not work out," and it appears to have been an eleventh-hour change. Regardless of who's to blame or what prevented this from happening, we're sure Chevy has had no problems getting attention for the C7 Corvette since it was introduced last month.
The days of changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles are long gone thanks to most cars having automatic oil monitoring systems, but about 800,000 General Motors vehicles apparently have incorrect monitoring software that is leading to premature engine component wear. According to Autoweek, certain 2010-2012 Buick LaCrosse, Regal, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain models equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines could be going too long in between oil changes resulting in a higher-than-normal number of warranty claims for the engine's balance chain. The balance chain links the balance shaft to the crankshaft, and a worn one can produce higher noise levels.

As a fix, GM dealers will be reprogramming the software for the monitors in an effort to reduce the interval between oil changes, which varies based on driving habits and conditions. Through February 2015, the software update will be done at no cost to vehicle owners, but since this is not a recall, after that point, it will be up to the discretion of dealers as to whether or not they will charge for the service. What isn't immediately clear is whether GM plans on giving assistance to out-of-warranty customers who are experiencing engine issues from the worn chain.
Chevrolet Camaro goes to South Korea - Click above for high-res image
General Motors decided several years ago to begin heavily promoting Chevrolet as its global mainstream brand even in markets where its existing brands like Opel and Daewoo were a dominant force. Today, at the Busan Motor Show in South Korea, GM Daewoo president Mike Arcamone announced that the Camaro would lead the way in GM's efforts to market Chevrolet in South Korea.
For now at least Chevrolet and Daewoo-branded vehicles will coexist in the Korean market. However, while we were in China last week GM officials told us that the Daewoo brand, which has been somewhat tainted by past quality issues, would eventually be phased out in favor of Chevrolet. When the new Aveo launches next year it will likely be badged as a Chevrolet even though GM Daewoo is in charge of engineering the car.
