Description

Lot #507 - Customized in the early 1980s using a 383 4-speed car as a starting point. Beautiful paint and graphic treatment by the famous painter Santini. The graphics are spectacular and in perfect keeping with the cruising culture of the 1980s. It was so beautifully done that it was featured on the cover of the June, 1983 CAR CRAFT magazine with a feature article about the car and a supplemental cover in color. In 2007 it was brought back to life. It was featured again in CAR CRAFT in July, 2008 in a four page color feature. It won many trophies and even had a model car done in the exact paint scheme. Of course, all of the trophies, signs, model car, even the original plexiglas sign from the 1980s and magazines are included with the car, as are the original Blue California plates "DOITRAD." The car has been upgraded over the years with R/T badges, a 440 Magnum V8, polished Centerline wheels, Rallye dash, spoiler, rear window louvers, front disc brakes and power steering. It has the original Pistol-grip 4-speed shifter. It runs and drives great, the instruments work, the green dash lamps give their signature green glow and it draws a tremendous amount of attention at car shows and events. Many, many trophies were won, including the Spring Fling XXIII 2009 "E Body Modified Award of Distinction" and Mopar Unlimited Mopar Fest 2007 People's Choice. The Spring Fling is one of the Biggest Mopar shows in the nation and a trophy there is a significant honor.
