This is a beautiful Big Block Classic with A/C and built to cruise in style and comfort .
I have been professionally building cars and trucks for more than 25 years and by that I mean paint , upholstery , engine , suspension , stereo systems and electrical and I do 100% of the work Myself so I can answer all your questions and I have a folder with all the receipts for well over 30 K spent on this car .
I started with a clean 1965 Plymouth Belvedere II and did the correct Big Block swap with K member , torsion bars and rear leaf springs with slide mounts , so no wobbly shackles and a 3:55 Sure Grip so with the A727 Torqueflite - she cruises at 75 with only 3000 rpm and still launches nicely .
All the front end is new including QA1 Tubular Control arms with a bit more positive caster , front MANUAL disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors - ( Image shows brake booster but couldn't find one that really worked well ) , steering box and all linkage and it is set up to cruise nicely down the road ! Fresh BFG TA Radials 255/60/15's all around with the US wheels !!
I started with a 1964 413 Wedge and punched it .060 and did some head work and crankshaft work for a bit over 426 cubic inches . Comp Cams Thumper kit , Comp Cams Billet adjustable valve train , Speed Pro 10.5 to 1 pistons and chrome molly rings , High volume oil pump , ceramic coated headers with flow masters - nice rumle , High rise with 750 Edelbrock performer , Electronic ignition , ECP custom Radiator with cooling module and 2 high flow electric fans - never gets over 190 with the AC on and in 100 degree heat !! Custom built 250 amp alternator with all wiring to handle the capacity increase . Engine has right at 5000 miles on it and runs like a champ ! I did the Armor coat on the engine compartment because the yellow wasn't easy to keep clean !
I did the interior in Genuine leather and alcantara inserts and used some Acura buckets and did a custom console to stash the head unit for the 800 watt stereo system with amp and sub in trunk and have a great place to rest your arm while cruising . I did double dyna mat and foil backed insulation on top to deaden as much sound as I could and it really makes a big difference when you are cruising especially with the Vintage air and heat system !
I cannot bring myself to paint this car because it is part of the beauty of it and is probably a 20 year old enamel paint job and because its light yellow shows quite well . Rear quarter lowers were patched and do show a bit but not enough to take away from the overall look of the car. Bumpers are in need of chrome work . It does have every bit of stainless trim that came with the Belvedere II car . I also fitted the A990 Lightweight scoop and it is functional .
I am at $29,995.00 and do have a little wiggle room for a serious buyer who knows what these cars are and how much it costs to put one together on any level especially a nice driver that gets a LOT of attention .
I have a clean and clear Texas Title in my name and the car is insured for the asking price .
