Just consigned by the longtime owner, owned since 1989. He had the car in storage for many years and pulled it out for use in 2012 and had many repairs done to get it to peak performance. (see photo of a partial repair list below)
The paint was done in the early 1990’s and is showing some age with thinning in some spots. The front bumper suffers from the common 1973-1974 plastic disintegration and should be replaced with a readily available reproduction part.
The interior is in great shape with recently added Corbeau seats and new factory correct seat belts. Factory options include 4 speed transmission, t-tops, A/C, power steering, power brakes, power windows and power antenna. All options work great including the air conditioning. All gauges work with the exception of the factory tach due to the installation of an HEI distributor. Nice Alpine stereo system.
The car has a balanced and blueprinted 350 engine that was built approx 10k miles ago. It is not the original to the car but is supposed to be casting # correct. It is a 4 bolt main block that was decked .012 and bored .030 over. It has a Crane part #113942 hydraulic cam. This engine definitely has quite a performance boost over the original engine. The 4 speed transmission shifts great. All brakes work great. The car runs and drives excellent.
During the 29 year ownership of the car, the owner has never driven it in the rain and it has always been garaged. It is only being sold because his work commitments are getting ready to force the car back into storage and he is not looking forward to another $9k repair bill like the one he has recently paid. It is time to move it on to someone that will enjoy it on a regular basis.
