Overall Condition: This ’38 Sedan is indeed RARE with its very expensive build cost and inexpensive For Sale Price… Its Truly Very Nice in every way… It is sharp at every angle, it was a WELL-BUILT, WELL THOUGHT OUT Resto-mod, an excellent driving machine, it is mechanically sound and has an awesome curb appeal! You CAN DRIVE THIS CAR ANYWHERE and in any Weather…

It is a Great Investment As Well as hitting the road with the utmost confidence!!

If you are keeping up with the trends of Early Resto-Mods, you know a few important key points… They are Extremely Popular Again, Very Collectable, Hard to Find in this Condition, looks Nostalgically Cool and everybody envies their owners! Keep in mind, I am referring to A Part of AMERICANA with a nice post-build history! It was a very nicely restored original sedan (Comes with Full Build Book of Pics, Manuals and Receipts) prior to being blown completely apart again and reengineered to the car you see here.

I love the feel and sound of this car and would not be afraid to take it anywhere! The Crate 350 engine has the perfect blend of torque, smoothness with a light roaring sound through the exhaust. Hit the key, turn on the Ice-Cold AC, pull the Lokar Shifter down and take off…it’s that simple. This is a car for many levels of competition, power-tours, or just simple family fun at the local shows or cruise-ins. A BIG FISH in any-size pond comes with the ownership of this machine.

This ‘38 has 5,400 tested miles… It has been a well-protected Georgia Southern car most all its life. It was well taken care of prior to its extensive high-cost construction. My friend who is a high-end collector lives part-time in Florida but I have the car and am helping him sell it. This car cost almost $60k when construction was completed a few years back and will be sold at a fraction of the build cost.

The body is fantastic with zero rust anywhere that we are aware of and very solid throughout… it took several years to build this car and the Craftsmanship really shows… It all works like it should, drives like you dream about a street rod should and is a cruiser that can just go anywhere at any time by just getting in and hitting the key.

Things work as they should including but not limited to Headlights / Taillights, Signals, Interior Dash Gauges, Heat, Cold A/C, Speedometer, Wipers, Horn, Smooth shifting Automatic, 10 Disc Stereo, Power Windows, etc.… The Car also comes with a Custom-made Cover and Front-End Bra.

Is this car Perfect? No and none of them are… that said, I guess it is just a good thing to state a disclaimer but I know of nothing wrong or to report about the car.

Why am I selling it? Space!!! I am selling the car to help my friend… He owns a few old cars that I will be assisting him with down the road. I have a Florida title in his name and have full autonomy to sell the car … the title as well as the car is here with me in Tennessee.

I reserve the right to end this ad early due to having it for sale locally... I am pricing this car to sell and believe it will not last long so, do not hesitate to buy and please do so with absolute confidence! Please have finances in order prior to bidding as well. Purely as a hobby, I have been blessed over the last 19 years to share my cars with buyers all over the country and internationally and take tremendous efforts in keeping a 100% feedback…that said, I have tried to be honest and accurate in all descriptions. I encourage however all to inspect this vehicle if possible prior to bidding so that you can confirm my notes above or contact me with any questions at or (865) 384-6017.

Note: While always being a Georgia car, he took it last year to his Florida home and registered it… I have a clear Florida Title in My friend’s name …I am not a business and this is a personal collection vehicle. Any buyer can speak to my friend about the car but I am very familiar with it as well.

If you are the winning bidder, please expect to send a $2,500 deposit within 72 hours and have plans to pick the car up within 7 days.
