During my daily troll through the hot rod classifieds, I found a babied 1953 Chevrolet 150 hot rod that is being reluctantly put out to pasture. To add insult to injury, the asking price has apparently been drastically lowered due to lack of buyer interest – just barely over 2 grand. With a rebuilt Chevy 305 engine, Edelbrock intake manifold, MSD ignition, dual exhaust, the engine modifications this guy has made easily cost twice that. The car has never been driven under any conditions other then bright blue California skies and even though it has a transmission that “shifts like butter”, it’s never, ever been raced. Obviously, judging by the awards and photographic evidence, the car is incredibly well cared for.
So what’s motivating the sell?
According to the seller, “I’m getting married, other wise i would never get rid of it. Weddings are very expensive.”
I give it 3 years, tops.
