Lot #1514 - Powered by the original 302cid 4-barrel "J" Code engine with a C4 automatic transmission. A complete ground-up restoration with less than 2,000 miles on car since completion. The restoration performed by current owner was completed 12 years ago with over $25,000.00 in receipts spent on parts and materials plus hundreds of man hours. The car has been in the family for 18 years with the last 12 spent covered in my garage and only driven occasionally while being meticulously maintained. This is an original Southern Arizona car with all of its original sheet metal with no rust. The car was completely disassembled, every nut and bolt, and media blasted during restoration. The car was reassembled with new and rebuilt components. The original matching numbers engine was rebuilt with Edelbrock Intake and carburetor and Cobra dress-up engine kit. It has a completely new 3" exhaust system with custom ceramic coated headers and Magnaflow mufflers. The transmission and differential rebuilt by Western Differential. After media blasting, the original sheet metal showed no signs of prior accidents or damage. The car was finished in a beautiful, show-quality Vermillion Red paint with an all new matching red and white interior package. The GT Equipment group was added at the time of restoration. This is a perfect running and driving car that gets all the attention everywhere it goes.
