We picked up this car almost ten years ago for my father. It was a very original complete car when we took it in. From there we stripped the entire car down to a bare shell and started the restoration process. The underside of the car was completely stripped to bare metal and painted to the same expectations as the exterior. The entire car retains its original sheet metal and was in great shape. The car is refinished in PPG DeltronScorch Red finished off with top of the line PPG clear. The car was then hand sanded and buffed to show car standards. We personally opted for the White lower stripe but the car codes for a black one.
The engine is the original numbers matching 440 ci rebuilt to factory specs. The block is stock bore never windowed, cracked, or damaged in any way. The cam, and pistons are factory spec units and the crankshaft, rods, heads and intake are original to the motor. It has been properly broken in and has zero oil seepage, consumption or problems.
The Rear end is believed to be the original one that came with the car and has been rebuilt from end to end. It makes zero noise, zero vibration and has no excessive lash. All suspension components are brand new and/or rebuilt to factory specs. Brakes are all new front and rear. The fronts have been converted to 1970 Mopar parts but the car originally codes for the Kelsey Hayes units in front. Rear Brakes are heavy duty 11” and completely rebuilt.
The interior is all brand new Legendary Interiors upholstery in the factory red color. It is equipped with the original console and Hurst shifter. The top plates are brand new from PG Classics. Car originally came with a tachometer but we have not installed one as of yet.
I’m sure I’ve left something out on this listing but feel free to ask any questions. The car might have a couple hundred miles on it since completed. Everything on the car has been restored/rebuilt/reconditioned. There are no disappointments with this beautiful car. It runs and drives better than new and is an absolute blast to drive.On Jun-29-16 at 13:58:33 PDT, seller added the following information:
Forgot to add that we have restored and put the original wood steering wheel in the car with correct horn button. The steering wheel in the pictures was a temporary one. Thanks and feel free to ask any questions you might have!
