This is a good solid car to start a restoration. The engine runs good and the transmission and rearend are also in good working condition.The engine code is T0805CPH 71S100095 and the block casting is 3963512 - Numbers MatchingTransmission code is P1M05B 71S100095 with a casting number of 3925661 - Numbers MatchingNeither one has ever been removed from the vehicle.The body is not damaged and the frame has only light minor surface rust, with very clean and unbroken floor pans. The Bird cage is clean.The fuel in the gas tank has turned past varnish and is now hard and will need to be replaced. I have replaced the fuel pump and car starts and runs off a fuel can.I added a HEI distributor to start the car but the correct Tach drive distributor is included and so is the correct BR coded ignition coil and bracket.The brake system needs a complete overhaul as well as the rubber lines. Car does not currently have brakes ! It has a very nice set of F70-15 Firestone Wide Oval Redline tires on the original 15x8 Rally wheels coded AZ behind the PO2 Deluxe wheel covers.This car also has the removable rear window and factory T-tops. Also the original AM-FM radio and Tilt Telescoping steering wheel.
It was sold new with a dual exhaust system under the car but at some point Hooker headers and side pipes were added. I have removed the extensions as the chrome was bad and i planned on putting a set of exhaust manifolds back on for the restoration.
Make sure you understand before bidding that this car is being sold as a restoration project and while you could do the fuel system and brakesto drive it, its being sold AS IS or as a project car. The last time this car was registered was 1984, but starts on its first spin and sounds great.
These cars are increasing in value at a great rate right now and with all matching drivetrain this will be a great blue chip collector car investment.
I reserve the right to end the auction early if the car Sells before the reserve price is met as the car is advertised locally.
