Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.


Classic Car Overview

This is a very cool custom thats sure to turn heads... after all, when was the last time you saw a 1931 Essex. But more than just rarity, youll love this one for all the upgrades, including the performance V8, upgraded suspension, and custom A/C interior. The Essex cars were known for really getting us into the era of solid body cars, and you can see the difference that makes here. The design is more substantial than the Fords and Chevrolets of the day, and so that gives you instant distinction. Plus, the all steel body fits together with the kind of care that commands respect. And this even has all the right vintage pieces like the pop out vent windshield, dual bumpers, and spare integrated into the passenger fender. But no one will mistake this for just a 30s-style jaunty machine. After all, this might have a classic black and burgundy two-tone, but the shine it radiates tells you someone wanted this Essex to be super-slick. And the low-slung profile on those bright wheels with half-moon caps tell you this distinct classic is also a rolling thunder. Inside, this one reveals more of its custom attitude. After all, the individual comfort of bucket seats wasnt available in the 31, but this one offers it for everyone. Even yours power adjusts the ideal position. The plush two-tone red and gray velour on these seats is part of a fully coordinated package that includes the door panels, carpeting, and headliner. So youll readily show off this custom anytime. And its easy to show it off everywhere thanks to comfortable features like cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. Plus, the three-spoke sports steering wheel and white-faced VDO gauges are another great reminder theres something special under the hood. While the exterior is more distinct than a Ford, youll be happy to have a legendary blue oval motor in the engine bay. The classic butterfly hood gives an excellent view of 289 cubic-inch V8 sourced from a 65 Mustang. More than just a V8 upgrade they really spent time adding the best performance components to the motor. You have flat top pistons, a steel crank, and a Crane Cams camshaft. It inhales deeply with a Holley double-pumper 650 CFM four-barrel carburetor and Holley intake. And it exhales with authority as Hooker Super Competition headers add even more power while also contributing to the thunder of the dual exhaust. This even has the right supporting components, like the MSD ignition and electric fans. The three-speed automatic transmission was even freshly rebuilt to keep this one cruising strong. So if youre thinking about driving this cool classic, then dont forget to look at the undercarriage photos. There youll see great features like the independent front suspension, four-link rear, and front disc brakes. With less than 3,000 miles on this restoration/transformation, youre looking at power, comfort, and true distinction all wrapped in one custom package. So if you love to stand out in all the best ways, call today!
