Purchased by the current owner in 1995 from a large auction in Scottsdale, AZ. The car was owned by a bodyman who did a very nice cosmetic restoration on the car. Unfortunately, upon getting the car delivered to his home the new owner found out the mechanical restoration was lacking and many of the mechanical features of the car needed serious sorting. So the owner went upon the task of going through pretty much everything on the car including; rebuilt engine and transmission, new rear end, complete brake overhaul, all gauges refurbished, wonderbar radio rebuilt, power windows refurbished, power seat refurbished, etc.
Currently everything on the car is functioning as it should with the exception of the clock which was replaced with an NOS clock and requires cleaning to function. Wonderbar radio works great as does the power antenna. Power windows all work great. All gauges work except clock. All lights work, exterior and interior. Power seat works. Factory power steering and brakes function as they should.
The car runs and drives excellent. Sounds great with the vintage style dual glasspack mufflers. Paint still shows well after 25 years with a few age blemishes. Chrome and trim are excellent. All glass is nice. Original black exterior and red/black interior color combination is stunning. Great car that draws a crowd wherever it goes!
