Classic Car Overview

Top of the line Star Chief. Not a perfect restoration but it doesnt need to be, its a beautiful car! It is also exceptionally solid and straight. EXTERIOR: The body is in excellent shape. it fits really nice, the doors click shut. It is straight, no rust blisters or cracks that I noticed. The paint is older, it has proven itself. Overall not a perfect glass finish but it is glossy. The chrome on the car over all is nice. There are some new pieces, some real good original pieces and then there are a few pieces that need should be replaced. The two bumperettes in front and two filler panels in the continental kit are poor. It is decked out with goodies including the continental kit, stainless skirts and lower 1/4s trim, fuel door and door handle trim. The coolest feature is the airplane hood ornament that has a lit up Indian head. The wire basket hubcaps are a rare feature. Of course it has big whitewalls. The dual bands that run down the hood are duplicated on top of the rear fins. It has a power convertible white top in very good shape. The reverse lights in back are optional too. INTERIOR: The upholstery actually has all been redone- seats, armrests, door panels are all in excellent condition. Seats feel good and firm too. There are seat belts added to the front. Carpet looks like its been replaced. The instrument panel area is not beat up, cut or broken. All the chrome trim, knobs, gauges are in really nice shape. The painted metal is showing age. It has optional tissue dispenser. luster has a tissue dispenser below the dash. Visors are real nice, it has a day night mirror in excellent shape. ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Clean, orderly engine bay. Components look proper. Has complete air cleaner assembly. The motor is painted neatly, has original silver streak valve covers. It is the 287 V-8 with the optional 200 hp version. Has 4 barrel carb. It runs smooth. Vacuum wipers were upgraded with electric. TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Big trunk compartment! Solid metal. It has a white wall tire that has never been on the ground, correct rubber mat and theres a car cover. UNDERSIDE: It appears to be very solid underneath. The whole center section still shows the factory primer. Floor braces and floor pans appear to be original. Some of the front end components look replaced, not caked in grease. Bottom of the motor looks clean too. The hydramatic transmission has recently been rebuilt. New exhaust with a glasspack style muffler. In back it has coilover shocks and spring helpers.
