FYI: Early in the car's history, the original 428CJ engine was damaged and discarded, later replaced with a 428SCJ. During tear-down prior to a rebuild, I discovered the SCJ crank was scored, couldn't locate another, and so finally decided to remove all the SCJ-specific parts (crank, counterweight, etc.) and use a CJ crank instead. I had this engine professionally rebuilt and correctly *internally* balanced as a stock 428CJ, but did use the stronger SCJ-LeMans rods. Aside from these better rods, this engine is a bone-stock 428CJ, right down to a stock profile cam and standard rocker valve train. You should also know that although the engine was inspected very closely at the time of rebuild, no VIN stamping on the block or heads was discovered. I would be happy to answer any questions about the engine or anything other aspect of this car.
FYI2: If you've noticed the gray material between the fenders and top of the engine compartment, that is strip caulk, very similar to what Ford used to keep water from getting between these panels. Some cars had more showing, some less, but a lot of restorers make the mistake of leaving it off. It is easily trimmed so it doesn't show as much, if that is your preference. I tried to restore everything as was original, and that includes things that may not be as "pretty", but all had an original purpose, like the sound deadeners on the drive shaft tunnel, floor pans, and wheel wells.
This car is an older restoration, but the photos you see here and on my website were all taken recently and accurately represent the excellent present condition of this car. You can easily see how its been well cared-for, and in person would be very happy with the condition.
This is a car that will not only turn heads as you drive, but as you pull up and pop the hood at shows.
Runs great! Ready to drive or show and ENJOY!
