Bought approx. 10 years ago by Hot Rod Hall of Fame inductee, Art Himsl for his wife. He painted it in murano pearl (not made in 40 years) as only Art would. He added some creature comforts like power disc brakes and air conditioning. Air conditioning works. The car is factory equipped with power seat, power windows and power steering. The car has the hardtop and softtop but Art has never had the softtop up so he is not sure of the condition. All gauges with the exception of the clock work great. Original AM radio is not working.
312ci V8 engine runs great and the automatic transmission shifts well. Art added the Edelbrock to improve performance and ease of maintenance. He added air shocks in the rear to compensate for extra weight in the trunk when traveling. They did use the car for a few long roadtrips to Reno, Southern California, etc. Car comes with the stock steering wheel, air cleaner, carburetor and alternator.
