Todd Van Boekel, who built the car with his son, Jake named the car "Nashty Habit."

The 2200 pound, 500 horse power, two-seater originally looked like the picture posted above.

Van Boekel was trying to sell the car on Ebay a few weeks ago. That's how Overkill magazine first saw the car.

The father son duo has sold Nashty Habit to a buyer in Pennsylvania.

The work now continues on a 1956 Chevy Bel-Air 210 Post, which they hope will be ready in time for Kool April Nights, which is a three-day car event in Redding.
