Vehicle Description

This is a real 442, as designated by the vin #. It is also highly optioned, has great colors and a big block 455 motor. I sold this car 8 years ago and we just got it back. It's in great shape, has clean metal, even the underside is clean.

EXTERIOR: It's a handsome looking car. That Matador red paint looks like I could dive right in. It's straight and has mirror reflection. There are a couple minor touch ups. The paint is over 10 years old which is a testament to having a clean body with a quality paint job. I did not see any bubbling down along the bottoms. The fenders, doors, trunk, hood line up nice. The white striping is properly laid out. In front the 442 grills are in excellent shape, the trim is bright, bumper looks new. Emblems, door handles, stainless trim is excellent. In back the bumper is rechromed and has the cutouts for the trumpet exhaust tips. The wheels are restored, has really bright polished trim rings and BFG tires. The door jambs are nice. Bottom of the doors are real clean, the weather strips and window seals still look like new. White convertible top is in very good shape.

INTERIOR: Very nice inside. There's no rips or tears. All the white upholstery, door panels, armrests are in great shape. Visor has tattered edge. Carpet looks practically new, has embroidered floormats. The dash area is really nice no cracks or damage. It's loaded up with options. Down in the center console it has the Hurst dual gate shifter which is cool and nostalgic. It also has the rally pack gauges and tick tock tachometer. In addition to that if it has a sport wheel on a tilt column, power windows, power trunk release, factory Am-Fm radio. Currently there's a custom CD stereo mounted neatly under the dash with kick panel speakers and a remote.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Has a 455 motor that runs real nice, it's painted the correct blue color. Everything looks tidy- the brackets, inner fenders, core support, fan shroud. It has power steering and brakes. Factory a/c car and it's complete. Needs to be serviced, the previous owner hasn't used it.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Really clean metal and the trunk compartment has a good coat of spatter finish paint. Trunk light actually works, it has the correct type trunk mat with the tire cover. Underneath that tire cover is a brand new BFG tire on a matching rally rim. Has a complete jack assembly. The power trunk release does work from inside the car. Well liner that the top folds down into looks new.

UNDERSIDE: Exceptionally clean. The floors are super clean. The frame, rockers, lower inner 1/4s are all real nice. Up front it has disc brakes, steering components look good. It has the F-41 suspension which includes sway bars and boxed control arms. Bottom of motor and the Turbo 400 trans look spotless. Several components look replaced- starter, brake and fuel lines, brake hoses, e-brake cables, dual exhaust, shocks etc.

I've always been a 442 fan. Compared to a Chevelle, they typically have more options and were better cared for. If you want a sharp muscle car convertible that is comfortable, this is your best choice!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
