  • Never involved in an accident
  • Chrome in excellent to mint condition inside and out
  • Mechanically excellent - starts, stops, drives like a meticulously maintained car with 60K miles. Shifts are smooth on the Hydromatic and car has plenty of pickup for a vehicle with it'sl 215 V8 2bbl engine.
  • Beautiful ORIGINAL two-tone paint with most desirable metallic green body and white roof.

Restrained restoration includes:

Rebuilt generator and regulator by Romaine Electric. Water pump rebuilt by Old Car Parts. Carburetor and steering box rebuilt and tuned to perfection by Joel at Bill’s Quality Automotive. Brakes surfaced and pads close-tolerance matched by Otts Friction. Replacement of all belts and hoses and gaskets as necessary. Valve cover gaskets replaced. Front and rear window windshield gaskets replaced. Minor touch up painting by Harold Walton along top passenger side quarter. Interior work professionally by Jose Garcia done to replace worn fabric on front bench seat with matching NOS fabric from SMS Auto, replace kick panels that had age damage, replace aged carpet with appropriate color pile weave, replaced rear package tray that had sunfade. We were able to reuse original vinyl on seats because it was in excellent condition. Imperfections include, a few small dings, minor freckle spots on top, non-working horn (can be fixed with purchase of easily available GM part), rt turn signal auto shut off not working. That’s it. This classic cruiser has a gentle patina of age that has to be seen to be appreciated.
