This beautiful car went through a restoration and was completed in 2010. The numbers matching original 429 motor was completely rebuilt. The block was balanced & blueprinted and was gone through from top to bottom. A slightly larger cam was installed to give her a nice rumble and extra kick in performance. The engine originally came with a 2 barrel carburetor but it and the 2 barrel intake were removed and replaced with a Edelbrock intake and a Holley 750 Dbl pump. The original AC is in place and the compressor spins properly. The transmission was completely gone through and shifts nice and tight and smooth through all gears. She really moves out for her size.
The body and paint is impeccable. The car is perfectly straight and has no rust. The passenger side quarter behind the rear wheel had a small patch of rust. The spot was cut out and replaced with the proper metal and welded in. The paint is absolutely beautiful and flawless. The power top and all mechanisms are new. It operates flawlessly and has all new weather stripping so it will never leak.
All the suspension, steering components and bushings have been replaced and are new. The steering box was fully rebuilt and all the brakes were replaced with all new parts. The car drives, stops, and steers like better than when it came off the showroom floor. It has great power and glides over the road like a true cruiser.
I have a thick folder of receipts (See Pictures) from the restoration.
