The previous owner had passed away and i bought it from the estate in 2004. I have talked to three guys that knew him and the car [ information i got from them is beleved to be true]. I am the third owner of this car! The NCRS dockument shows it wassold new byCofer Motor Co in Smithfield, a. dealer code 111 in zone 37. They were a GM dealer. I tried to find the first owner with out any luck. The second owner is from Duncanville, a. The second owner used this car for bank loan collateral for his business. I bought it on 9/13/2004.
I am not new to restoration as i have been at it since i was a kid [then thees cars were new, ot classics] Many of the classics i restored were show winners.
I will get more photos and list them later this week. I just added two more. The photo of the pass seat is the original seat and the drivers seat back looks nearly as good, he botom drivers seatcover is bad. The interior was a little dirty but all in all in decent condition. The second photo [just added] showes the bird cage [no rust].
The car has a 4 speed - 4:11 posi rear end [the # show that they are original] I was told that the trans was rebuilt for new sincrows [it looked fresh to me so i did not rebuild]. The rear end was lo milage so i just replaced seals. Remember this car has 32711 miles on it. The car has the tach buzzer- signal seeking radiospair tire well & lid are there.I was told that the car had the sintered metallic brakes and fans with vented backing plates and dual line master cylon it but, nbsp;thees were missing when i got the car.On Dec-13-15 at 16:50:40 PST, eller added the following information:
Iwas asked about the primer on the fenders and front end. The car was hand stripped bare and I used a gel coat primer on the front end and rear fenders. I ran out before i got to the top & fenders, hey are naked fiberglass.
