Custom classic cars for sale in NC

These cars were the work and personal property of the late Gordy McLean (my father), a noted and well-respected custom car builder for over 50 years. Well-known in his native Chicago and his adopted home of Fuquay-Varina North Carolina for his skillful restorations and attention to detail, Gordy exhibited and drove these "Gordy Specials" throughout the area.

Please see this link for photos and contact information.

1954 Chevy project car
This car would make a great project for an experienced restorer or custom builder. The body on this car is exceptionally clean, and complete, the tricky spot is that the previous owner had started a chop-top effort that left the top tack-welded as shown in the pictures. Dad had planned to basically restore the original lines and then do a more correct customization.

All body panels, grille, glass included. Also included but not pictured is the frame. We also have original seats and interior panels. The rotisserie pictured is not included but could be used for initial transport. Not included are engine, transmission, front suspension, title. The rear floor pans, trunk and trunk lid are all in excellent condition, the front floor pans need some work. All the body moldings and many trim parts are included and in good condition (a rare find).

REDUCED asking price $2200

Dad was an incredibly talented customizer. Sadly (despite my user name), I did not inherit his passion or ability in this field. But I can personally attest that his custom cars are one-of-a-kind, extremely high quality works of art. The Riviera in particular may be my favorite of all his projects. The 'vette is mostly stock, but he added his signature flame job and changed the grille and wheels. Also, we're working to get more complete information on the '50 Chevy. I'll post any updates as they are available.

Feel free to post any questions and I'll do my best to answer them here. Thanks!

If you're asking if we'd consider selling it for parts instead of all at once, no. We're offering the entire car (or rather, what there is of it) as-is.

Should somebody with an entrepreneurial streak see it as an opportunity for profit, sure, have at it. Nobody on our end is interested in doing so. Mom just wants it gone.

Wow. Other than the wheels, which aren't my style, that '64 Riv is BEAUTIFUL.

Thanks, BomTek -- it's even more impressive in person, IMO.
Dad was a perfectionist, and the attention to detail on this car is amazing, even by his standards. Note the raised designs inside the doors and trunk, the textured upholstery, etc...

As I said upthread, it's a true work of art.

I realize there is only a niche market for these cars, but if you know of any serious collectors, please pass along the link. They are truly one-of-a-kind works and fantastic show pieces. Thanks!
