MODERNIZED, CUSTOM, 305 V8, AUTO, PS, PB, NICE HONEST CLASSIC!!!

If you're looking for something fun, different, and unique...how about this 1953 Chevrolet Sedan Deluxe? It features a great-sounding V8, with all of the niceties you would want for a long enjoyable weekend cruise. With the price we have listed on this one, we don't expect it to last long either. This 1953 Chevy is ready for the road and with its custom touches throughout you'll be sure to turn heads no matter where you go.

Vibrant red, although obviously not the original color, is sure to grab everyone's attention. With beautiful chrome accents this car is dazzling. True Chevrolet fans will notice that liberties have been taken when it comes to the bodywork, however in this case the overall presence is stunning. This is a true example of how less can definitely be more. The build was done some years ago, so there's evidence of age in the finish, but from a few feet away it appears near perfect, and for a car that runs this well, it's easy to overlook minor paint issues. At the back of the car many will notice the custom rear tailights, and a nice touch of custom black and gray pin striping around the antenna.

The exterior might scream 1950's, however pop open the driver's door and you'll instantly see modern amenities that you would expect in any late model vehicle. The luxurious red leather interior uses buckets that appear from a late-model car, custom door panels, and a fabricated center console to really bring things up to date. Vibrant red carpets match the exterior and give it a bit of contrast to the black dash, and all the modern conveniences are here: a powerful AM/FM/CD system, power steering, and a tilt steering column. Equss gauges were neatly installed in a nice aluminum instrument panel, with auxiliary gauges to the right. Below the dash you'll find the shifter, and before you ask, yes it's equipped with a dice shift knob. There's a full back seat for taking some friends with you, as well as a nicely appointed trunk that's upholstered to match the interior.

The old six is gone, replaced by a reliable 305 cubic inch V8 that was pulled from a 1978 Monza LG3. The 145hp engine is a refreshing change from the 350 conversions we've all seen at our local car show. Looking reasonably fresh, the small block makes power using a 4-barrel intake and 4-barrel carburetor. Simple touches, like painting the valve covers and air filter, have been taken to ensure that the engine bay ties into the exterior very nicely. Bolted to the unique small block is a 4-speed automatic transmission that sends power to a 10-bolt rear end. Stopping power comes courtesy of upgraded front disc brakes and rear drums. In front of those brakes, 15" wheels are the perfect '50s rolling stock and carry 205/65R15 blackwall tires for a low-key look.

Not stock, but not radical, this is a sensibly updated vintage Chevy that looks good and can be driven anywhere with confidence. Call today!
