This vehicle is equipped with the standard (for SS 396 models) F41 suspension and it has all the correct suspension parts and pieces (frame brackets, disc brakes, etc..) that it should have. I have the original build sheet, it is very nice and this vehicle speaks for itself in that it is definitely an original SS car that has not be molested or abused. The mechanics are in excellent condition and it runs and drives excellent. All of the exterior lights, dash lights, radio, wipers, electric top and other electrical items work well. The body is perfect after spending over $40,000 on the body and paint restoration.
