The frame, irdcage and all metal parts are absolutely solid and have only light surface rust, ypical of an Arizona car. perfect for a full on restoration or a nice #'s matching driver.

The car was owned by a pilot that lived in Scottsdale, rizona. He apparently got a case of "NCRS fever" back in 1986. He parked the car in his hangar where he began to meticulously disassemble the car, agging and tagging the parts. Fast forward to 2015 and the car is still sitting in the hangar, he restoration never happened and the gentleman needs to clear out the hangar as he has relocated out of state. The LS4 454 is original and numbers matching along with the M20 4 speed and the 3.08 Posi rear.
I have inventoried the parts and have been quite pleased with the originality and completeness. Motor is disassembled yet complete with original numbers matching block, eads, ods, rank, lywheel, istons, am, ater pump, istributor, ntake etc... No machining has ever been performed on the crank or block, hey are still at factory specs and show no signs of damage. Carb and alternator are replacements, he 7043202 carb is correct for a 73 small block.
The body looks very original and un-hit, t is in very good condition with the exception of a crack on the lower front fender near the nose. It was believed to have been bumped while the car was stored and should be easily repaired. Other than that the body is very nice with good fender lips and no flares or other modifications. A repair was made to the left taillight area sometime in the past, t isonlynoticeablewhen viewed from below with the gas tank and spare tire removed.The car has been repainted white over the original blue, he body has been sanded down yet not into the fiberglas as can happen.
Spare tire carrier is complete yet it has some damage on the bottom, he possibly original spare tire is included along with the spare tire mounting bolts
The interior is complete and in good condition, dd thing is that all "Custom interior trim" items are in place yet the car is sporting date correct vinyl seats, ossibly a special order by the original owner.
Nothing broken or damaged, ll parts in good condition, ll original wiring and vacuum lines are still in car and in good condition.
The original plastic nose has withered away, et the original metal grilles with turn signals are undamaged as well as the complete headlight assemblies.
Known missing items are nose, xhaust manifolds, xhaust, arpet, m/fm stereo, as tank, indshield, ir cleaner
I hope I have not left anything out, erious buyers can contact Rob at 636-236-4178

UPDATE AND NEW PICS, dded pics of the crack on front right corner and of repair made at top right corner of driver's side headlight opening. The passenger door was apparently replaced when the car was still new as the door has the date 5-31-3 and "Service" written on the inside in grease pencil. that is two months after the build date of the car.Pic of original correctly dated coded fan clutch and fan, istributor and air conditioning compressor.
454 has been loose bolted together as well as most of the interior for safe keeping during shipping.
Original leather seats have apparently been recovered with vinyl sometime in the past as they are in too good of condition for their age.
More parts discovered missing: rear window frame,smog pump,seatbelt buckles (correct belt retractors and shoulder belts w/ retractors are present)
