Vehicle Description

Sweet!!! This is one super clean and bad a-- unit! Scroll on down the page and listen to the Big Block 427 rumble on the video while you take the time to read this text. From top to bottom, you will find this a very special opportunity to own some mighty fine utilitarian muscle. Sporting a very thorough body off restoration/modernization, this "Original" factory equipped SS 396, 4 speed, power window, air conditioning and tilt specimen has been taken to the next level of muscle fun...

The solid body was removed from the chassis and placed on a rotisserie. The underside body was cleaned and prepped to receive a smooth weather protective coating of POR 15. Once rolled back over, all body components were prepped and sealed with quality PPG DP Epoxy Primer prior to receiving PPG Black with Blue Frost Pearl, custom body side/hood accents and finally 8 beautiful coats of PPG DCU 2002 High Solids Clear. All rubber is new. All body trim, grill, bumpers, bumper guards and tail lights have been restored or re-chromed. For a cleaner look, the fuel door has been moved to inside the bed. Finishing off the exterior is a custom built set of  1969 SS wheels by Wheel "Vintiques" (15x8 front -15x10 rear) wrapped in BF Goodrich radial tires (P245 front - P275 rear)...

While the body was off, the chassis received the same type of attention. The Frame was  bead blasted, de-burred, smoothed and professionally powder coated in smoke silver. All front suspension components were powder coated and rebuilt, new polyurethane bushings, 1 1/8" sway bar and new power steering box. The rear suspension was updated with spring air ride bags and Hodgkis Performance sway bar with 4 link suspension components. The braking system received all new stainless lines, rebuilt original SS power front disc brakes, rebuilt 11" rear brakes (all powder coated). Closing out the rolling chassis is a completely rebuilt Chevy 12 Bolt Posi stuffed with Eaton Posi-Trac, 373 Gears and new axles...

Now for some horsepower! Residing under the hood is a real 1969 Corvette 427 (cast #3955270 335hp) Big Block sporting some great mods including Full roller camshaft, roller rockers, 8 quart oil pan, ceramic coated headers/exhaust, Holly ST Avenger 750, MSD pro billet distributor, MSD Blaster ignition coil and 6AL box. The engine was broken in and tuned on an engine Dyno at 460HP, included are all Dyno run sheets and receipts. Gas tank has been flushed and powder coated with new stainless sending unit and all new stainless3/8" fuel lines. Backing up the transfer of power is tight shifting Tremec 5 Speed manual transmission...

Now let's get in! Prior to assembly, all cosmetic interior metal surfaces were treated to PPG body color and Dynamat heat/sound material was installed throughout. Dressing it up is Mercedes Benz carpet and professional custom Ultra Leather upholstery over original seating. All dash plastic is new and all original gauges have been rebuilt and odometer set to zero at time of restoration (3,212 since resto). Custom console with gauges and CD sound system. All wiring harnesses in dash and engine compartment are new American Auto Wire. Rare factory options include interior map light mirror and remote driver mirror but let's not forget, factory Air Conditioning (updated), Tilt Steering Column and Power Windows...

In closing, what else do you need, this unit offers great looks, plenty of style and tons of powerful fun. Study the detailed photos, video, text and feel free to ask questions but I am sure this one speaks for itself.... Let's haul some wood... Get In, Shut Up and Hold On!
