Body off frame restored to a high quality!

High quality, body off the frame restoration. This car was done right. Not only does it look like a new car but it performs like one too. I personally drove it home and around town.

EXTERIOR: It looks new, actually no, it didn't look this good when new. The body is fantastic. Very clean metal, bottom of the fenders and bottom door lips are clean. Quarters are smooth along the bottoms. No bubbles, the doors fit square, open and close like new. The yellow paint is almost flawless, polished to a smooth glossy finish. You cant even feel the stripes. It does have a couple small touch ups. All of the trim is new, we're talking about the grill, marker lights, bezels, emblems, door handles. Even all the stainless trim around the windshield has been replaced. Has sport mirrors, SS hood and stripes. 17 inch Cragar wheels have Nitto performance tires, larger in the back. Door jambs are painted as slick as the outside, new weather strips and window seals. The windshield is new. Convertible top has been upgraded to a German black cloth, very rich looking.

INTERIOR: Completely restored. The seats were recushioned, reupholstered and has all new plastic and chrome trim. Carpets are new including matching floor mats. The instrument panel is all new, it has the SS gauge package including tachometer. New dash pad. It also has a center console with the horseshoe shifter and wood grain trim. Has seat belts front and back. There is a stereo modern stereo hidden in the glove box, has a remote control to operate it and two speakers in the rear armrests. The window cranks, kick panels, vents have all been replaced.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Rebuilt 454 that runs perfectly. Idles so smooth and quiet but has some giddy up and go. Upgraded Edelbrock carb and HEI ignition. Every component in the engine compartment looks restored or new- brake booster, horns, fan shroud, a/c compressor, wiring, wiper motor, hinges etc. Has new alternator andfuel pump. The washers are hooked up. It is restored to look factory- stock manifolds, valve covers and even a Delco battery topper. Bottom of the hood is painted, has insulation. In addition to the stock fan it also has twin auxiliary electric fans in front of the radiator.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Super clean original metal with a very neatly applied spatter finish paint. The bottom of the trunk lid and jamb are as glossy as the exterior. The weather strip is new, has trunk mat, chrome rally wheel for a spare a jack and new well liner.

UNDERSIDE: It was a body off the frame restoration, so the underneath of this car has been completely redone. Front end is all rebuilt- bushings, ball joints etc. Rear suspension is new. Has F-41 suspension which includes sway bars and boxed control arms. Bottom of the motor is real clean, the starter looks new. Has a chrome flywheel cover. The turbo 350 automatic has an aluminum finned oil pan. New fuel system- tank, straps, sending unit and fuel lines. The brakes have been redone, disc in front. Emergency brake cable system looks complete. Has a custom exhaust with X-pipe in the middle. Floors are real solid.

There have been about 7,000 miles put on this car since completed. It is obvious that person took extremely good care of it. I'm telling you this car was comfortable, reliable and easy to drive. You can drive 50 of them and this will be in the top 5 for sure!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
