Painted beautiful Glacier blue within India ivory roof. We have the Dupont paint codes It has a very glossy clearcoat finish. It's polished so nice it looks like you could reach your arm right into it. Every piece of exterior chrome and trim has either been restored like new or replaced. The front bumper is completely smooth, there's no seams or bumper bolts. The rear bumper is indented, correct for a wagon. It is dressed up with optional accessory trim.

On the floor it has sound deadener, correct tight loop carpet and reproduction floor mats. The interior metal trim has been repainted smooth and glossy. It has a reproduction steering wheel that is a couple inches smaller. The instrument area and chrome trim looks new. A retro stereo fits right in the factory hole. The shift indicator was updated to match the Turbo 350 automatic.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The most reliable motor is going to be a GM crate 350. They come fully assembled even with oil in them. Brand new electric wiper conversion. New power brake system with dual reservoir master. Aluminum radiator, engine fan plus dual electric fans keeps it running cool. It has reproduction hose clamps.

New springs, shocks and 2 inch drop spindles. In back it has new 2 inch dropped leaf springs, new bushings and shocks. New fuel tank, straps, sending unit and a Holley electric pump. Custom stainless Pypes exhaust with 2.5 inch pipes, x-pipe and it goes all the way out the back. The brakes were rebuilt, upgraded with a disc conversion in front.

This is an all around nice car- in, out; top to bottom. It is a nice looker and ready to be driven anywhere you want to go. I'm confident this one will make the new owner very happy!

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.
