Only 1,682 miles since show quality restoration. Stunning good looks with incredible interior and exterior. From a fussy collector that was very particular about fit and finish.
EXTERIOR: The outside of this car is simply outstanding. Fit and finish is absolutely stunning. The body is laser straight, panels and trim fit like a new car. Every square inch of the paint is polished like a mirror, you could read a newspaper in the reflection. Every single piece, I repeat EVERY piece of chrome is show quality. Even the stainless around all the glass is polished straight and like chrome. The base of the wiper arms are new, the brushed inserts on the quarter panels look new, the gold V and license plate frames are new. It does have a few extras too- dual mirrors, door handle guards, reverse lights and fuel injection emblems. The little flappers at the top of the door windows work, doors shut like a new car. All the glass is new. Real tinted glass, not a stick on film. The window frames have been rechromed. All new rubber gaskets, window seals and weather strips. Great looking chrome Torque Thrust wheels on performance Kumho tires.
INTERIOR: Wow. Stunning, it hits you in the face (In a good way). Very high end looking. All one shade of bright red. The dash area is beautiful. It is painted like glass and is fully trimmed out with polished aluminum. Has a really cool set of gauges including a tachometer. Tilt column has a beautiful custom steering wheel. Updated aluminum heat and air controls. A retro stereo fits right in the stock hole. Shifter was moved to the floor, has a nice looking Lokar shifter and a red leather boot. The seats are awesome, very stylish and comfortable. Bright red leather, seat backs recline and has center armrest. Door panels upholstered to match, has billet handles. Carpet is bright red, has reproduction floor mats. New headliner and matching visors. Just like the outside, there's not a single part inside the car that isn't brand new- the armrest bases, the pedals, the mirror etc.

Upgraded power steering system with a remote polished reservoir with a sight glass to check fluid level. New steering shafts and knuckles. The motors is dressed up nice with aluminum.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has been entirely carpeted to match interior. Even around the hinges, in the tire well and under the rear deck. Professionally done, has sewn edges and tire cover. Battery is relocated to the trunk.
UNDERSIDE: Very solid, clean floors and frame. Upfront the suspension is completely rebuilt, new springs and shocks. Upgraded rack & pinion steering, fat sway bar and disc brakes.
