My wife and I restored this car together over 20 years ago. To our knowledge we are the third owners; my wife located the car in a storage yard in the early 1990s and the owner at that time indicated his daughter was the second owner. The car was my wifes daily driver for almost 10 years. Since then we have driven it occasionally and have continued to maintain and store it appropriately. This is an original California car with its original assigned black plates. Although this was a difficult decision for us, we have decided it is now time to pass it on to the next keeper of classics.
The car is basically all original with the only exception being that we installed a Pontiac 400 engine and turbo 350 automatic with shift kit during the restoration. We have the original 326 engine that we removed for the restoration. The 400 is bored .030, balanced, and has forged pistons, Edelbrock Performer manifold, Holley spread bore carburetor, with a mild hydraulic cam. There is a separate transmission cooler and an original 4-row desert cooler radiator.
We have records photographs and receipts for our restoration work. We also replaced the convertible top again two years ago and installed a brand new power steering box.
This is an unusual car in that it is a convertible equipped with factory A/C and power windows. I have never seen another with this option combination. The car is totally rust free but needs to be freshened up or is perfect for an authentic restoration. We have additional photos and videos of the current condition available.
