1955 Black Oval with Original Body Paint   Price: $16500
This is a black 1955 oval sedan with a restored red leather interior. The main body (not counting the fenders) is original, meaning that there are certainly chips here and there, but overall the paint is in great condition. The car also has a 1951 California plate currently on it which has been approved by the DMV.

The engine started as a 1954 36 hp unit but was upgraded with a Wolfsburg West Okrasa kit (dual carburetors and dual-port cylinder heads). Other upgrades include reconditioned rods, a 69mm stroke crank, new pistons and barrels, and a mild performance-grind cam. The previous owner did the rebuild and estimated the current power figure to be around 60 hp, and displacement to be 1300cc. The car also has a 12v conversion using a Porsche 356 12v generator and aluminum crank pulley.

I purchased the car in 2017 and the engine had just been rebuild (somewhere near 12000 miles) the car currently has 15215 miles on it. Other upgrades include the roof rack and a Retrosound "period correct" audio system, with radio, Bluetooth, and USB connections.

If you want additional pictures or information let me know. I have a google sheet cataloging all of the work that I did on the car as well as the mileage for the 3000 miles that I put on the car over the past 4 years.

I had several people reach out asking for pictures of the bonnet and engine compartment so I took a couple with my phone earlier and added them. I also want to be upfront that I am looking for $16,500 or best offer, so if you reach out to me and someone has offered more I will let you know and you can reevaluate.
