This fantastic cruiser provides the best combination of classic styling and modern performance. The drive train is freshly built and installed only 1156 miles ago. It features a GM 327ci V8 that has been completely rebuilt. The transmission is a Turbo Hydramatic 350 rebuilt with TCI components. The front suspension is Mustang II with Power disc brakes. The AFCO Aluminum radiator with electric fan keeps everything cool. It coasts down the road on a set of Wheel Vintique powder coated wheels with polished stainless steel caps and BF Goodrich TA radials with Wide White Walls. To round out the amenities, this car is also equipped with Power steering, Power brakes, Heat and Air Conditioning. The retro style gauge cluster by Auto Meter and Banjo steering wheel really complement the nostalgic feel of the interior.
The body is as solid as can be with no signs of rust or repair. The floors are equally nice and well presented. While the paint was done more than 10 years ago and has some minor signs of age, it looks great and has the same authentic mellow aging as the brightwork. The top is very high quality Haartz Cloth and has a glass rear window. It doesn't seat properly to the windshield header and will require adjustment to be corrected. The interior is upholstered in brown, stitched leatherette. Its soft, supple and sits very comfortably. It also adds to the authentic, period feel of the car.
Operationally, this car is amazing. It runs and drives like a modern car. The engine has an mellow exhaust note and tons of torque. The transmission shifts precisely and feels seamless. The suspension has just the right combination of a comfortable ride and great handling. The brakes are responsive and positive. In all, this is an extremely well executed combination of new and old that gives the driver and passengers a uniquely fun motoring experience.
