I drove this car and it's a blast! What a little firecracker. It has plenty of snappy performance, very responsive handling and steering, stops on a dime. It shifts through the gears with ease. Less than 2000 miles since the restoration. Very meticulous front to back.

EXTERIOR: It has amazing fit and finish. This body is laser beam straight. Smooth all along the bottoms. The Porsche red paint looks like it's wet, it's a red mirror. All the gaps are square and flush, doors shut like new. All the chrome and trim is straight and shiny. Upfront the bumper and grill look new, headlight bezels are nice originals. Moldings around the windows are nice, vent window frame has some minor pitting. In back the tail panel trim is good original, bumper has been rechromed. New windshield. The aluminum wheels are highly polished, has spinner center caps and Cooper Cobra tires. 14s in front, 15s in back for a hot rod look.

INTERIOR: Restored from carpet to headliner. Genuine soft leather, it smells like leather in this car. The bucket seats were rebuilt with new cushions, then upholstered in 2 tone leather. The plastic seat backs are even wrapped in leather. Custom door panels are also 2 tone leather. Overhead it has a suede headliner, leather visors and a working dome light. It is completely rewired front to back. New Dakota Digital analog gauges that light up red. New carpet on the floor with gray seat belts in front. It has a center console with cushion and cup holders. A Hurst 5 speed shifter is sticking up out of the floor. The dash area is painted gray.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Wow, that's what I said when I opened the hood. Show quality, glossy finishes. Custom inner fenders because of the upgraded suspension there are no more shock towers. It also has tubular support bars to prevent flexing. It's all painted gloss black. The bottom of the hood is gloss red. The 350 motor has been rebuilt and bored 30 over. It has a Comp Cam, roller lifters, new aluminum Pro heads and gear drive timing. On top it has an aluminum intake with a dual feed Holley carb and MSD ignition system. It has braided fuel line, premium fittings and chrome Holley fuel pump. Long tube coated headers let it exhale. Dressed up with polished aluminum valve covers and chrome alternator. It runs cool with an electric Be Cool radiator, stainless steel upper hose and electric fan. It has power steering with a billet bracket and pulley. Has a dual reservoir master cylinder. Wires are run neatly, the battery is bolted down properly, heater hoses are not hooked up.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has been completely boxed and upholstered to the same high quality as the interior. Floor is carpeted, custom made tire cover. Has a jack and spare. Even the bottom of the trunk lid has a custom made, embossed and upholstered panel. Trunk jamb is painted gloss red, new weatherstrip. Also included is a car cover and a factory SS 4-speed console.

UNDERSIDE: Upgraded with a Heidts Super Ride subframe with tubular control arms, adjustable coil over gas shocks, rack & pinion steering. In back it has air shocks and traction bars. Bottom of the motor is clean, has extra capacity oil pan, the starter looks recent. Upgraded with a Tremec 5-speed trans. It has a McLeod hydraulic clutch. Recent Auburn 3.73 posi gears in back. Great sounding Flowmaster exhaust. Brakes were redone, has disc in front. E-brake cables are hooked up.

Whoever gets this car is going to have some fun. It is exhilarating to drive, yet it gives you the sense of reliability. It looks amazing too.

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.
