Gorgeous car, restored beautifully. Correct 396, factory Hugger OrangeDescription from the previous owner:
When I purchased the car it was sold to me as a number matching 396 true SS hugger orange car. I saw the numbers on the front of the block but was unable to confirm the block stamp in the rear. They said the transmission had been replaced and it was believed to have the original 12 bolt rear end. It had recently (5-6 years ago) body up restoration when they upgraded the speed tech tubular front suspension and installed the 4 wheel disc brakes with all new lines.
When I received the car it didn't steer very well so I had it checked out and was determined that we needed to replace the power steering pump and gear bow and had a front end alignment done at that time, I also replaced the flowmaster exhaust with a quieter set of mufflers. It also needed a sending unit for the gas tank so I also replaced the tank straps and rubber insulators at the same time.
The interior needed work so I sent it to an upholstery shop to have the interior redone. I had them take everything out except the dash, we reused the center console and front door panels but everything else was replaced. Before they put in the carpet I had them put in dynamat insulation then the jute and carpet. I had them replace the power top pump, lines, cylinders and frame for the convertible top and had them replace the top and rear window. I purchased an original seat belt set from Heartbeat city Camaro that was refurbished that they installed. There is also a set of NOS sill plates in the trunk.
I also had someone do a cut and buff on the paint before the top was done which looked great but the upholstery shop put a few light scratches on it when they replaced the interior.
I also replaced the american racing wheels with a set of 15x7 SS rally wheels and Firestone retro radials from coker tire less than 100 miles ago.
