DESCRIPTION

Only 14 miles since a body off the frame restoration. Everything was apart and restored. It was upgraded with Vintage Air, disc brakes and power steering. I think it is a very handsome body style with several very cool features and great colors.



EXTERIOR: The body has no rust or damage. Its smooth clean metal from the rockers to the roof. Everything fits very nicely. The black paint is polished out like a mirror. The beige roof is also like glass. The chrome trim looks like it's all been replated. The stainless has been straightened and polished. Some of the cool features I like are the rocket hood ornament, cool taillight trim with "88" molded right in and futuramic is embossed in the side moldings. Very good original glass, the wraparound windshield is new. Weather strips were replaced.



INTERIOR: Beautifully restored original. The recushioned seats are upholstered in genuine leather and pinstriped cloth. The door panels are done to match. The dash area is repainted, the chrome sparkles, gauges are clean. The steering wheel is gorgeous, it's cool enough to hang in my office. There is a factory clock and a retro stereo in the factory hole. The air conditioning controls are neatly mounted under the dash. The headliner was replaced, it has a day/night mirror.



ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It is obvious the entire engine compartment was disassembled and restored. The rocket motor was rebuilt and has a 4-barrel carburetor. It's painted the correct green and has the cool rocket valve covers, original manifolds, air cleaner and glass bowl filter. A new Vintage Air system was installed. It was upgraded from a generator to an alternator and from 6 volt to 12 volt. It has a more modern power steering system. An electric fan helps keep it running cool. The metal is smooth and painted a nice semi gloss finish.



TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Big, clean metal trunk painted satin black. Under the trunk lid and jamb are gloss black. New weatherstrip. The battery was relocated to the trunk and has a billet hold down and a disconnect switch.



UNDERSIDE: This is what sold me, the underside of this car looks new. The body was off the frame for a thorough restoration. The front end components were completely apart, rebuilt and detailed. Looking up at the motor it is spotless. The starter was rebuilt. The Hydramatic trans looks fresh. It was upgraded with swaybars front and back. The brake system was completely restored and upgraded with disc in front. The e-brake assembly is hooked up. It has a custom dual exhaust with glass pack mufflers. The rear end was apart, gone through and detailed. The fuel system was replaced- tank, sending unit and lines. The bottom of the body has pristine floors painted a smooth satin black. The body was reattached with new bushings. It is detailed under here, even the nuts and bolts look new.



Very handsome looking car. It's always been one of my favorites. The quality is there, someone spent a lot of time and money. Now you can enjoy it!



I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
