Here's a good looking muscle car that's meant to be driven. Real
442 with an upgraded 455 engine, cold air conditioning system and

been polished like chrome. Bumpers, handles, mirror and emblems
have been replaced. In back it has cutouts with the trumpet exhaust

a spare. The metal appears to be really clean on this car.
Underside is not repainted or restored but really dry original
