Description

Lot #441 - Dripping in newly-finished classic white body paint and a red hardtop, this Firesweep is beautiful. The paint is in fantastic overall condition showing minor signs of age; the car shows extremely well. All of the body panels are in very good condition, straight from the front end to the signature tail fins. Both chrome bumpers are in very good condition showing only very minor sights of age, but still very presentable. Optional dual rear antennas are still in great condition, along with the other chrome trim pieces that accent the car's lines. Inside, the largely original interior is two-tone red vinyl with period-correct patterned cloth insert, which are in great condition. Under the hood is a very clean and original 361ci Chrysler big block V8 engine paired with a smooth and durable TorqueFlite automatic 3-speed transmission. It's equipped, from the factory, with power steering. It also features push-button gear selector and original dashboard and gauges.
