LHD - 455ci - Automatic
|Condition:||In good condition|
|Model Type:||Electra 225 Coupe|
I imported this fantastic car from a friend in Tennessee - I drove the car a lot whilst out there last year and twisted his arm to sell me it.
Prior to my friends ownership this was a one owner, never restored car that had been fully resprayed to a good standard. It doesn't have the chrome or stainless that the 50's or early 60's cars have but what there is is all present and with very few imperfections. Other than some split seam and a seatbelt wear issue to the drivers seat the interior is near perfect.
The 455cu in engine and auto gearbox are superb - this is a very strong driving car that lays rubber easily ! No rattles, knocks or bangs, doesn't smoke or use oil, exhaust is new and perfect, shock absorbers, steering and suspension are all fine, brakes just totally rebuilt Inc. front drum skim.
As with all old cars it isn't perfect - there are a few minor electrical gremlins (fuel gauge, radio and clock not working) and the choke needs sorting so a bit grumpy on cold start but these things are all easily sorted. A dry state car so absolutely zero rust ever
The car is UK registered with the V5 in my name. I'm only selling to fund a new project.
The car can be viewed and collected from Romford, Essex in England
