Body off restored. Rebuilt motor, trans, new power steering

We just acquired this car from the person we sold it to 7 years ago. The car underwent a frame off restoration before he bought it. He spent significant amount of money making major improvements including rebuilt motor and trans, new convertible top and power steering installed.

EXTERIOR: The body shows really well, its straight with no rust or damage showing. The gaps are real good, especially the hood. In front the bumper, grill moldings, emblems and turnsignals are in very good condition. The chrome has peeled in a few spots on the grill. The chrome grill on the hood scoop looks new, trim on the sides are excellent. All the trim around the windshield is polished like chrome. Wiper arms and door handles look like new. The chrome in the back is all very nice. It has a new Stayfast black canvas convertible top, cost almost $3,000. It has radial white wall tires on beautiful basket wire hubcaps with the red inserts. The windshield crystal clear, all the chrome around the windshield is polished bright.

INTERIOR: Sharp looking two-tone red and white interior. No cracks in the steering wheel, the horn ring is not broken like most of them. The instruments have clear lenses, it has a factory tachometer. The door panels and upholstery were replaced at the time of restoration. It has an aftermarket center console with cup holders that lifts right out.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The engine was completely rebuilt and balanced only 2,000 miles ago. We have receipt and spec sheet. It has hardened seats for unleaded fuel and rebuilt harmonic balancer. All the hoses, clamps, plug wires, motor mounts were replaced. Water pump, fuel pump, motor mounts were replaced. Professionally rebuilt 4 barrel "teapot" carb. Upgraded from a generator to an alternator. Upgraded Pertronix ignition and Flame Thrower coil. Upgraded desert cool aluminum radiator. Correct power steering system was added. The engine compartment is beautiful, it's all detailed up real nice. It has the engine dress up kit which includes a chrome air cleaner and oil breather, finned aluminum valve covers. Upgraded Optima battery has a billet hold down with a disconnect.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It is restored nicely. All solid metal painted white. It has a white wall spare. The cardboard seat divider, rubber trunk mat and weatherstrip was replaced.

UNDERSIDE: The body was removed from the frame for a complete restoration. The metal is so clean under this car it was all painted gloss white. The chassis was rebuilt and repainted and semi gloss black. The front end steering and suspension was all rebuilt at the time of the restoration. The power steering control valve is new. Looking up at the motor it's still spotless, not greasy. The starter is rebuilt. The automatic transmission was recently rebuilt. The fuel system was replaced at time of restoration. It has dual exhaust, the mufflers were recently replaced. It has upgraded coilover shocks in back.

This is a beautiful bird. An American icon ready to be enjoyed!
