The car has generated quite a lot of interest, and I thought I had sold the car using another web site, but for one reason or another they fell through.
Before I begin, you should know that if you do try to haggle me on the price, it will only give me another reason to keep the car. The price IS **FIRM**
So, with that said...
-real thing, 138 car.
-original bench seat + 4 speed car. A sought after combo (COPO look) by those with a refined palate.
-stored for most of its life.
-non original 396, with 500 to 1000 miles
-full roller rockers (Comp Pro Magnums), under the original style valve covers.
-Oval port heads.
-Rhoads lifters. This increased the low end torque and mileage tremendously, while reinstating the cams radical profile at about 3000 rpms. The best of both worlds.
- Rochester carb restored (cadmium plated & more) and modified for great overall performance.
-custom curved HEI distributor from DUI ignitions. Made in the USA..not the cheap and generic Chinese garbage.
-12 bolt posi traction rear end, with 3.56:1 ratio
-M20 4 speed (extra low first gear). Perfect combination with the above rear gearing, and the engine design.
-paint intact, but could use a repaint. Has a a ding or two. Good luck trying to find an SS car priced at 20k that doesnt need a repaint...try living on planet Earth.
-no rust on this car.
-both rear quarters have been replaced sometime in its past. With oem quarters, not the current thin gauge Chinese garbage.
-unbelievably clean for an original interior. Almost be a shame to replace, but I was planning to.
What it needs:
-front end alignment
-I was planning on replacing the rear axle seals, but havent had a chance.
-hood hinges need to be replaced. $150 to have them done properly. I can provide contact information of the person who does them right (stay away from repro parts).
-passenger side door needs to be adjusted, but the fender would have to be removed to access the the hinge bolts. Very minor
