Frame off restored, very dialed in. Air, ps, pdb! Real SS.

$79,000 invested in a fresh body off frame restoration. It is really dialed in, I would let my daughter drive it anywhere. The owner/builder is one of the nicest people I ever bought a car from. After I bought it he detailed it, changed the oil and greased the car. Only 3,800 miles since finished. A pile of documentation is included.

EXTERIOR: The body was taken down to a bare shell, we have pictures. It is all metal, no rust. It has a metal cowl induction hood. It is straight and fits nice. Repainted in it's original Nantucket blue upper and lower without a vinyl top. The paint formula is available along with extra paint and clear. The metal flake is applied evenly and it has a very smooth glossy finish. It looks like just about all of the chrome and trim is replaced. In front the entire grill, bumper and emblems look new. On the sides the rocker moldings, wheel well moldings, emblems, door handles, bowtie mirror all the trim around the windows looks new. In back the tail lights, tail panel trim and bumper have been replaced. The door jambs are painted real slick. It has new weather strips, window seals and sill plates. The windshield is new. 1 key works all the locks and ignition. What a great stance. The 15 inch chrome Cragar wheels look new. It has Uniroyal tires up front and in back he upgraded to a set of Nitto extremes to grip the road.

INTERIOR: Beautiful blue interior. New PUI interior kit includes cushions, upholstery, door panels and carpet. It also has new armrests, window cranks and handles. Chevy rubber floor mats. Above is a new headliner, visors and mirror. In front of me is a new dash pad, all the chrome plastic instrument bezels have been replaced. It has factory in dash gauges and aftermarket Sport Comp tachometer on the column. New deluxe wheel. All the metal has been painted real nicely. The center console is in great shape, it has a working clock and a Hurst t-handle shifter sticking out of it. The air conditioning controls are neatly hidden in the console. It has new blue seat belts front and back. New wiring harness throughout the car.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Completely rebuilt 427 making 499 hp and 495 lbs of torque on a dyno. 454 high performance block with a 427 crank, Lunati roller cam, 10:1 compression and Edelbrock aluminum heads. On top is an aluminum intake, Holley 800 cfm carb and an HEI ignition system. The front of the motor has Serpentine belt and pulleys, a Powermaster alternator and a modern power steering with billet reservoir and stainless braided hoses. It has new power brake booster and master, there is an external vacuum pump to compensate for the low vacuum because of the performance cam. It runs cool with an aluminum radiator, dual electric fans custom shroud, overflow bottle and aluminum water pump. New heat and air conditioning system. The wiper motor was replaced, squirters are hooked up. It has an Optima battery with a disconnect switch.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: All metal solid trunk compartment. It's spatter painted. The bottom of the trunk lid and jamb are painted glossy. New weatherstrip. There's a car cover included, It does have a jack and a spare.

UNDERSIDE: It has been body off the frame restored, every component underneath is replaced or rebuilt. The front end was apart and given all new bushings, springs and upgraded QA-1 shocks. In back it has a Hotchkis Sport Suspension with upper and lower control arms, frame braces, sway bar, springs and air shocks. The fuel system has been replaced including the tank, straps, sending unit, and fuel lines. The exhaust is new and has stainless MagnaFlow mufflers and electric dumps. The brake system is all new and has disc in front. New brake lines, hoses and e-brake assembly. Bottom of the motor is clean, has a high torque starter. Upgraded with a 5-speed Tremec transmission. New McLeod hydraulic clutch assembly. The 12 bolt rear end has 3.73 posi gears and was completely rebuilt with new parts.

This is a turn key car, very dialed in. It is one of the bast cars I've driven this year. The builder really put a lot of pride into this restoration. It checks all the boxes too- a/c, 4-speed, etc, etc.

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.
