Great looks, 440 and a pistol grip 4-speed! This car has all the
good stuff without having to spend $60,000. It's actually a very
solid car. I was just underneath it and it looks like clean
original metal. The floors, rockers, even the inner rear quarters
are clean. Bottom of the doors are real nice, the metal in the
trunk is excellent. Has glossy finish paint. The combination of
stripes, spoilers, scooped hood and no vinyl top make it a good
looking car. Rallye wheels and BFG tires appear new, a little
bigger in back for a tough look. Has the proper exhaust tips coming
out through the valance. The whole tail panel looks real nice.
Upfront the grill is restored nicely. Rechromed bumpers. Interior
has nice door panels, 4-speed console, carpets look new. White
upholstery isnt new but good shape. Very good dash pad, it does
have a repair. Instrument panel has factory rallye gauges. Has
upgraded CD stereo and 6x9 speakers. Under the hood is a 1968 440
magnum HP motor. Previous owner claims it's rebuilt, it runs and
appears that way. Freeze plugs on the side of the block look brand
new. Upgraded high-rise Edelbrock Torker intake with an Edelbrock
carb. Also has a set of headers and custom dual exhaust. New
alternator, upgraded aluminum radiator and it's dressed up with
some Mopar aluminum valve covers. Banging through the gears with
the pistol grip 4-speed should be some good fun. Power steering and
disc brakes make it even better. As a whole it's a sharp looking
car with nice features. It's not a pristine restoration but it's a
rock solid car in good shape!
