Over $60,000 invested. Yes, it is beautiful and can be proudly displayed at any car show, but it's strong point is driveability. It just completed a round trip to South Dakota. It is comfortable and reliable. It also has an alluring look, people have really been drawn to it the first few days we've had it.
EXTERIOR: The fastback design is desirable. The color is really great too. I immediately liked it and then it was confirmed by other people's compliments. There is little flakes that glisten in the sun. It is polished out like glass. The body is clean and straight, the car is from California. There is some nice looking hand painted pin striping. The bumpers were rechromed, grill is good original, stainless thin has been polished real nice. In back it has had some custom work to clean it up. Any trim was removed and filled on the trunk and hood, the rear fender seams were filled smooth. The taillights are custom and a 3rd brake light was added. The windshield was replaced with a new 1 piece curved glass. The rest of the glass is tinted. Other features include sport mirrors, power antenna, rocker molding and stone gaurds. Polished Torque Thrust wheels look great on any car, especially this one.
INTERIOR: Very comfortable and roomy inside. It's been very nicely upholstered. The seats match the door panels. Headliner has been replaced, visors are redone, mirror is new. It does have the original gauges, but they've been rebuilt and converted to work with the 12 volt system. The clock is converted to quartz. Has a polished tilt steering column and beautiful banjo style steering wheel. The lower dash was reconfigured to accommodate the stereo system and AC controls. The wipers were upgraded to electric. The stereo system is modern with bluetooth.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Super reliable crate 350 right from GM Goodwrench service counter. They come fully assembled right down to having oil in them. They chose an Edelbrock carb with electric choke. It has a new heat and a/c system. There is also new cruise control system, power steering and power brakes. New large aluminum radiator with dual electric fans keeps it running cool. The motor compartment is proper and dressed with some chrome.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It is all carpeted with sewn edges, even the tire cover. Has a jack. The battery is relocated to the trunk and it's mounted in a plastic case. New weatherstrip seal on the trunk lid.
UNDERSIDE: Upfront it has a Nova subframe. The suspension and steering is completely rebuilt. Has disc brakes. Bottom of motor is dry and clean. Has new starter. The trans is a turbo 350, also clean and dry. In back it has leaf springs with lowering blocks, electric fuel and a 10 bolt rear. The dual exhaust has Cherry Bomb mufflers. The floors, inner rockers and frame are rock solid original metal. I don't see any patches. The car is from California.
If you want a car that is comfortable and reliable but still turns heads, this is it. Ready to go wherever you want it to take you and you won't have to spend a week polishing the underside after every use!
