Unrestored survivor.428 CJ 4 bbl Holley carb, 4 spd Toploader transmission. 3.50 Traction Lok rear.40,000 original miles with one repaint in Wimbledon White back in 1979. Original color is Pastel Gray(Which is White in color and not Gray). According to previous owner car was painted due to scratches. Interestingly enough car still retains it's factory applied side stripes. In 1979 stripes were obsolete from Ford Motor Company and they weren't available from aftermarket sources at the time. So they taped off the original side stripes and did an excellent job where you need to look very up close and at certain angle to see how careful of a job they did. The original side stripes are a shade darker in color than repro stripes and seem thicker too. Options include Tilt wheel, Power vent, AM 8 track stereo(Doesn't play well has static)with original speakers in the doors as it was from the factory.Car has no rust and retains it's original body panels.I have owned this car since 1989.
