This is a #s match 427 tri-power right out of California. Has NCRS shipping report, sold new to Earl Hayes Chevrolet, Dallas TX. Just finished a body off frame restoration.

EXTERIOR: The body is in excellent shape. The raised hood lets you know there's a 427 lurking under the hood. I did not see any repairs or damage. The gaps are exceptional. Repainted original Silverstone color. The metal flake is laid out evenly and has a glossy finish. In front the chrome is shiny and fits nice. It still has the weathershields protecting the headlights. The chrome is back sparkles too. New windshield. The chrome and stainless around the windshield was restored. Correct antenna.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: #s match 427-400 hp big block tri-power. Casting dates, codes and matching vin. The engine was professionally rebuilt. Carbs were sent to Seattle to be restored. Restored to factory specs except for period correct valve covers that have been restored. It has factory manifolds, ignition shielding and even smog equipment. Radiator was recored, reproduction hoses and clamps. Many new or rebuilt parts- alternater, vacuum cans, hood latches etc. It's a detailed compartment.

The front end and suspension looks entirely new, including steering components, bushings, ball joints, springs, and upgraded gas shocks.

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.
