Lot #1576 - Frame-off restoration in 2006 to a very high standard. A matching numbers car with the factory optional 350hp version of the high revving 327cid V8 that many enthusiasts prefer since it gives more power than standard but is much lighter than a big block. This results in a "best of both worlds" scenario of better performance combined with more neutral handling and easier low speed maneuvering when parking and around town. And, with the optional side exit exhaust system you still get a suitably beefy exhaust note. Other options on this car include the teakwood rim steering wheel, AM/FM Radio, power brakes, soft ray windshield, cast aluminum knock-off wheels wearing correct style red line bias ply tires and the M20 4-speed manual transmission. In the restoration, a '67 Stinger hood was added for a more aggressive look.
