The top hand built from single piece of sheet metal and formed to near original contour of factory roof line. A special tool was machined to place the ridges in the metal. The floor pans were built to match the exact locations of the ridges in the roof. The rear apron is all handmade. The frame extensions that held the bumper were cut off and a new an apron fabricated to cover the area below the body and an insert made to hold the license plate.

The top was chopped two inches and the radiator shell was dropped 1-3/4" to give the car a completely different look from the original line. The rear wheels are 15" Halibrand and the fronts 14". There is a slight front end rake that is very appealing. 

The original '29 Chevys have lots of wood framing in the body. That is why it is so difficult and expensive to build one of these cars. It takes many hours of expertise to build that back with steel and finish the welds to look factory. The frame was boxed and necessary attachment points added by Ronnie Caldwell. Every weld and fabrication point has been ground and polished and painted to perfection. This is an ALL METAL car. No fiberglass or filler. Thousands of hours of final preparation time and attention to detail. 
Paint is PPG Mazda Red applied by  Roger Benton.

It is usually hauled to all shows. It has been awarded best in show at several events.
Car is kept year round indoors in a climate controlled storage garage with other rods. Always clean.

Custom metal work included the filling of part of the open area behind the front wheel opening. The originals sloped more toward the running board from the top of the fender rather than the modified line sloping down behind the wheel. New aprons were fabricated below the doors down to the running boards, which are also new and one solid piece of metal.
The original hood has been welding solid (had a hinged center) and hinged from the cowl. The sides under the hood are new one piece fitted metal to replace the original louvered sides. The front fame extensions have been cut off and the fenders reshaped across the front to look like later models. A complete new apron was fabricated to fill in the frame, old crank hole and under the radiator. 
Engine is a 350 bored .030 over and a mild cam and 4 bolt mains. There are some dress-up items and a Z-28 intake.  The firewall is original with some holes filled and new holes added for this engine setup.  Walker radiator, Vintage A/C and heat system, Sanderson ceramic coated headers. A stone guard over the front of the radiator. Mallory ignition. Many engine parts are polished. Transmission is a GM 350 Turbo. 
The underside is completed painted with much detail. Some parts are chrome and look nice to show. The rear suspension is  from a 1981 Corvette with chrome springs and short shafts. Front axle is dropped 4" and chromed. Disk brakes are Wilwood with billet aluminum calipers. Shocks are by Pro.
The turn signals are under the fender on the frame rail. Many steering and suspension parts are chrome plated.
Interior is by M&M Custom Upholstery in Blountville, Alabama. Seats are from a '86 Fiero and there is a back set also. Steering column is GM tilt with a Corvette wheel. Original exterior door hinges have been removed an new hinges added to the inside. Control Console is Panasonic Cockpit with a stereo system.
Instrument cluster is Dakota Digital.  Power windows are by Specialty and are mounted under the arm rest along with the door handle. Exterior doors open with a magnetic switch.
The area where the original spare tire bracket attached to the body was modified to become the gas filler opening. Taillights from a 1934? Chevrolet were molded into the original fenders. Slick looking trick.

PRICE: Asking $79,000 - Consider that you will not find another one like this. All steel, thousands of hours of hand work, finest details to every item. Very reasonably priced for the quality of car. I do not drive this or take it to shows anymore. It is a proven "one-of-a-kind" show winner. A top winner in every show entered.
This car would be priced $100,000 - $125,000 in an auto showroom. I can sell it at a more reasonable price as the builder/owner. No need to pay a showroom profit.
