We found this car in Brownwood, Texas in October, 1990. Someone had painted it red and put a used set of black interior in it. The air must not have worked on it and they decided they didn't need to keep any of that so they removed the evaporator core, ducting and anything else they no longer needed. They put a plate on the firewall where the evaporator was and sealed it off. A 350 Chevy small block was in the car. We drove the car for several years in this condition as it was mechanically sound - just not real pretty. It was a favorite cruiser for our dog, Annie. The first time she rode in the back seat with the top down she seemed surprised that she could turn all the way around and see out in any direction.
Surprisingly the original papers were with the car and the Owner's Protection Plan had been filled out when it was originally sold. It was sold new on March 25, 1964 to V.I.P. Auto Leasing in Dallas, Texas. The selling dealer was Doran Chevrolet which was then located at 2222 Main Street in Dallas. The warranty was signed by Felix Doran, Jr. who originally started Doran Chevrolet in 1946.
When we decided to restore the car we purchased another Chevelle to take all the a/c components from as we needed the dash vents, evaporator box and correct heater box to go back on this car. We bought a 1964 Impala that had the correct 327/250 h.p. engine to rebuild for this car. We kept pushing this car to the back of the garage as we bought, built and sold other cars and didn't get serious about it until the last few years and started to seriously put it back together beginning in 2013. All original wiring was replaced with new harnesses, gauges restored as needed, brakes rebuilt, suspension rebuilt, new exhaust system, new a/c compressor and evaporator, new heater core, all new belts and hoses, rebuilt steering box upgraded to quick-ratio steering, all new interior (door panels, seat covers, side trim, dash pad, sunvisors, carpet) and the list goes on. Everything on the car is either new or rebuilt. Nothing was left undone.
The car has been repainted to the original paint code color of silver blue with the original silver blue interior. New aluminum trim and all new badge emblems. Interior is all new. The console is rechromed.
The first picture below was taken on the car's first outing. The wire caps look really sharp. They were a set of NOS wires we had on hand. Richard took all the spokes off and polished them. The centers were repainted black and the spokes reinstalled.
Beautiful rare Super Sport convertible with air conditioning. This car is new or restored top to bottom. We have never seen another one even half as nice. Lots of original literature and documentation to go with the car.
