Sellers original description:
1959 2 door Chevy Brookwood Stationwagon. VERY RARE 2 DOOR.
This car was bought from California 1 year ago as a body off restoration. Since having the car I've done loads of modifications to make it road friendly and reliable. Paint is blue candy with a silver roof. The chassis was cleaned and is now powder coated in blue. The body is in excellent condition with no rust. All the chrome and trim are in excellent condition. It has a new interior, which is silver carbon with blue carpet. Lap belts in front and full race harnesses in rear (for the kids!). A ZZ 4 350 engine & new 700R4 box, which I've fitted, with Lokar shifter. Wilwood vented disc brakes all round with billet Wilwood calipers, with inboard handbrake. All cables are new.
Billet Specialities wheels, 17's front, 20's rear.
I have completely rewired the car, with a new harness from the states, new heater controls and cables. Ididit steering column & Billet steering wheel. Chrome column with stainless steel UJ's and shaft. New power steering box and pump. All new pulleys.
All the suspension is Air-Ride Technologies, the ProRide E system. Shockwave suspension with tubular front A arms. New billet Air-Ride adjustable shocks all round. This system is fully remote control.
New sealed beam headlamps. All glass is in excellent condition. New wiper motor and arms.I've just fitted a high powered quality sound system.
Tow bar fitted, with a removable hitch.
I've taken this car to shows, its a real eye catcher and has won trophies. Its registered 1959 so no MOT or tax needed.
