At the heart of this Electra is the "GROUND POUNDING" - REBUILT - FACTORY ORIGINAL - NUMBERS MATCHING !! - Code "4H" - 401 CID "Wildcat" V8 motor that is running VERY well. The motor also sports the ORIGINAL intake manifold, ORIGINAL exhaust manifolds, ORIGINAL valve covers, ORIGINAL Rochester carburetor and the ORIGINAL "Wildcat" scripted air cleaner housing, etc... . Sounds GREAT too with the factory style true dual exhaust system with dual chrome tips. The engine is backed by a SMOOTH - Three speed - "Super Turbine" - TH-400 - automatic transmission that also functions very well. The BEAUTIFUL !! - NEW - Code "860" - Carmine Red Electra 225 interior is in VERY NICE condition including a VERY NICE NEW Carmine Red Vinyl front seat, NICE Red carpeting, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Electra 225 steering wheel, VERY NICE Matching Crimson Red Vinyl door panels, VERY NICE NEW Carmine Red Vinyl rear seat, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Factory Gauge clusters, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Carmine Red Vinyl sun visors and a VERY NICE ORIGINAL Carmine Red Vinyl dash pad with NO CRACKS !! The NEARLY NEW White convertible top is also in VERY NICE condition and includes a NEW Dark Carmine Red Vinyl boot cover. All of the black rubber weatherstripping is still soft, supple and in NEW condition. The - Code "C" - Arctic White exterior finish is EYE POPPING BEAUTIFUL !! showing some small chips that have been touched up but still looks GORGEOUS !! as you can clearly see in the LENGTHY VIDEO & 100+ ADDITIONAL PICTURES !! This Electra comes nicely equipped including factory power steering, factory power brakes, working factory power windows, factory front wing windows, factory power wipers, factory 6-way power front seat which is no longer working, factory speed warning buzzer, factory power antenna, original driver's chrome side view exterior mirror, good glass, good heater and defroster, working original clock, original "Sonomatic" AM radio which is no longer working, factory gauge clusters with 120 MPH speedometer, original day / night rear view mirror, working factory power antenna, factory power convertible top and factory back up lights.
