Billissa Enterprises, Inc. (“Billissa”) began operations in the Spring of 1984. The Company was formed to produce and restore various types of automobiles. Numerous sports cars, customs, antiques, classics, street rods, muscle cars, and fifties and sixties cars were turned out by the shop. The varied interests that the Company had through its formative years reflected the interests of William Kling, its principal stockholder and Chief Executive Officer. The Company won numerous awards for the work that it performed during that time.
When the collectible automobile market suffered a major downturn at the end of the 1980’s, Mr. Kling decided to cease the operation of the restoration side of the business. However, because of his love for all types of automobiles, he decided to continue with the expansion of his personal collection. Along the way he has owned Muscle Cars (Hemi Cuda, Shelby Mustangs, Hurst Olds etc.), Woodies (Ford wagons, Ford Sportsman, Packard 120 Station Wagon), Jaguars (XK120, XK140, Series I and III E-types), Ferraris (365 GTB/4S Daytona Spyder, 575M Maranello, 330 GTC), Street Rods (1940 Ford Coupe, 1933 Ford Coupe), Corvettes of various years, many fifties and sixties special interest cars (1957 Chevy, 1957 Thunderbird, 1961 Ford Sunliner etc.), and a number of Packards. In addition to the cars, he has also ridden and collected various types of motorcycles for over fifty years.
Following his retirement as the Chief Financial Officer of a public company in September, 1995, Mr. Kling decided to rekindle the auto and motorcycle business. With a dedication to finding and selling vehicles of the highest quality, the Company is able to call upon three decades worth of experience in the collector car market and five decades in regards to motorcycles including contacts with some of the finest technicians in the entire United States. The current inventory that the Company has for sale represents the best quality vehicles that Mr. Kling has been able to locate. A complete description of each vehicle with all that is known about it is included in the inventory section accompanied by detailed pictures.
Mr. Kling is readily available by telephone or e-mail to personally answer any questions you might have about any of the vehicles since he is intimately familiar with all of them.
