1958 Chevrolet Delray 4-door

This car was a l-owner car I bought in Austin from the original owner. It had 23,300 original miles. It was silver blue with blue cloth. It was a 3 speed column shift. She gave me the original bill of sale and the owner's handbook. In the trunk was an original (super thick) spare fan belt, the original spare tire, a Wizard tire patch kit and set of Wizard car fuses. The car had lived in a garage all its life and the thick original rubber trunk mat was still soft. Options on the car included a deluxe horn ring and armrests on the door panels. When she bought the car she had traded in her 1937 Buick. I would have loved to have seen that one.

Did not have a radio and did not have a heater. She lived in an old house in Austin with a tiny 1 car wooden garage. She had trouble getting into the garage without a little rub - although the body was great the stainless steel on the sides had seen better days. We took the car to Amarillo and had the car repainted and the stainless straightened and polished. The car was absolutely gorgeous and this is probably the best paint job I ever had done on a car. We took it to auction and I actually walked up on a guy who was examining the paint with a magnifying glass. I asked him what he was doing and he said that this was probably the most perfect metallic paint job he had ever seen - he also said he had gone over the entire car and there was not one single flaw in the paint.

We eventually sold the car to an old car museum in Corpus Christi - I don't know if they still have the car or not but it was museum perfect.
