Description

Lot #482 - Two family owned since new and never driven in the rain. Built in Fremont, CA, this is an authentic Super Sport convertible. It was restored from the ground-up about 2008 which included a new coat of Matador Red, installed a new white convertible top, complimented with new white stripes, re-chromed both bumpers and installed Coker red line tires. Inside, the original seatbacks remain, while reupholstering the fronts of the seats. This matching numbers 396/325hp with Rochester 4 barrel carburetor and power steering is mated through a Code 35 Powerglide automatic transmission to a 3.07 ratio 12-bolt rear axle, Code H01. The original AM radio remains in the dash and a JVC AM/FM/Cassette/CD was carefully installed, without cutting into the dash or kick panels. Factory air conditioning was rare for its day. Rarer yet are the factory ordered simulated wire wheel covers. Included is past CA black plate, original owner's manual, original owner's son's statement of originality, current and previous owner's titles, California registrations dating back to 1970. Has the original tire jack. One of only 2,286 built.
