Extremely rare! 1 of 70 SS 454. Concourse restored.

Extremely rare SS 454 convertible, #24 of an estimated 70 made. Listed in the registry. Only 170 miles on concourse restoration. The person that rescued this car from a 25 year hibernation in 2009 says he put his heart and soul into restoring it. Completed in 2012 and stored in a climate controlled environment since. It was also invited by the MCACN event to be in a Showcase Display which is for "superior examples of limited production vehicles".

EXTERIOR: I absolutely love the Sequoia Green with the white, it really makes a killer combination. These are the factory colors it was born with. The panels are laser beam straight from every angle. No bubbles or damage. It has original cowl induction hood with functional flapper door. The metal flake is all laid out evenly, the clear coat is polished like glass. The SS stripes are painted on proper dimensions. Jambs are painted slick. All of the trim, bumpers, lenses, grill, stainless moldings are new or restored.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Restored to factory condition with hard to find one year only 1972 parts. It is spotless, the Chevy orange is still fresh on the 454. All the components look like new. Numbers match carb, reproduction plug wires, Delco battery, GM hoses and clamps. It has smog system hooked up. The squirter system is all hooked up. Everything is in the proper finishes- pulleys, brackets, hinges etc. The cowl induction system is complete, it also features power steering and brakes.
