This is a George Barris endorsed custom, it has his Barris Custom emblems and signature on the visor. It has had extensive modifications and upgrades. It's old school from the cruiser skirts to the tuck and rolled upholstered dash! The tri-power carbs, 4-speed and functional Lake pipes make it fun to drive. The custom body and paint would easily cost $50,000 to duplicate today!
EXTERIOR: Excellent fit and finish. It has had some significant body modifications and they did a great job .....
with it. It's straight, no rust or damage. Upfront the body was resculpted to accommodate 1954 turn signals and Pontiac bumpers. It has a 1955 Corvette grill with a custom tubular surround.

I just keep telling myself and others I'm impressed with this car. Typically, a car that has been modified to this extent in this price range is not this nice. It has a few years on it but they did a great job. They had good taste too. I like everything they did, especially the front bumper and rear taillights. It really seems to function very well too. This is A LOT of car for the money!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership.
