Vehicle Description

Ok, here's a solid mid 60's drop top looking good, priced right and ready to go. This unit comes with it's original bill of sale (May 18, 1965) where it was originally sold to a customer from Ludlow, Kentucky and according to available records it's body sports just over 89,000 actual miles.

Of course since that time she has been restored and modified with plenty of desirable performance features and just over 2,300 miles since it's completion. Yes, it decodes as an original SS specimen and the original small block V8 was substituted with a very desirable Big Block BBC with period correct 396 appearance along with a popular 700R4 Automatic Overdrive Transmission and 12 Bolt 373 Posi-Traction Differential for additional drivability. Wrapped in Red over originally equipped Bucket Seat/Console Interior with Year One style reproduction style trim & in-dash factory tachometer. Over 37K invested, buy at a fraction of that... it's always cheaper to buy one done! For the rest of the story and details, read below and study the 60 detailed photos...


Upgraded with a very drivable, stout and pro built ($4,250 receipts included) 454 BBC (block #10069286 85-87 LS-6 crate) reworked to 435HP 472 CI with 9.5 to 1 compression ratio running on 91 octane pump gas. The 700R4 Auto Overdrive Transmission is a NEW "Monster Trans rated for 450HP with stall converter and a fresh 373 gear ratio 12 Bolt Posi-Traction differential resting on new rear springs & bushings, rebuilt by Arizona Differential in Phoenix.

Other features include new Power front Disc Brakes/Drum Rear, Power Steering w/new gear box & new front suspension components, new 4 core radiator/hoses, new 750 GM Quadra Jet stage II race carburetor, Edelbrock 120 GPM fuel pump, new shocks Gas Front/Air Rear, 2 1/2 Dual Exhaust with Crossover, new  BF Goodrich Radial T/A's & 15" GM Rally Wheels and this is only a fraction of a large list of new or rebuilt items/components!

Known Facts  

Free and Clear Private Party Titled in the State of Arizona! This a great looking car that's very drivable and Show N Shine ready. The body is solid and the newer extremely shiny Red finish with good straight lines body & fit. Professionally refinished ($6,000 Cost) jamb to jamb finish/prep rated as "average" professional quality (good presence from a very short distance and straight with only minor flaws noted). Good to excellent running and drive characteristics, fresh, clean and tidy interior. Now as we always say, Not Perfect and Not New (none are) but someone is going to get a great classic for a great deal at a fraction at what it cost to get there...
