Vehicle Description

#s matching and documented with original tank sticker and protect-o-plate. The p-o-p has the exact motor, trans and rear end codes that match the car. It was sold new at Beatty Chevy in Knoxville TN Jan 10th 1968.

EXTERIOR: Rare factory color- International Blue. It was upgraded at some point with an L-88 hood. Of course the t-tops and the back window are removable and fit behind the seats. The body is actually in excellent condition. The more I looked the more impressed I became. I don't see any signs of damage, everything fits beautifully. The paint is very smooth and glossy, the metal flake is laid out evenly. The door jambs are painted smooth and glossy. New weather strips. Upfront the chrome looks like new. The bumpers and grills fit nicely, it has the weather shields protecting the headlights. Good indications it wasn't hit in front. The emblems and door handles look new. In back the bumpers sit level and are rechromed. The taillights and licence plate frame also look new. The trim on the 15x8 rally wheels sparkle like new.

INTERIOR: It is restored very nicely inside. The seats feel like they have new cushions, the upholstery looks new. Carpet has been replaced from front to back, the door panels look brand new, dash pad and center console have been replaced. The heater control bezel is original. The gauges are all clean, nothing is cut or broken. It has the original Am-Fm radio. There are no cracks in the steering wheel, it looks like new.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: #s matching 427-400 hp tri-power. The casting dates line up and casting #s are unique to a 427 only. The stamp looks original with broach marks, the vin matches the car and the dates and codes are correct. Correct #s on the distributor, exhaust manifolds, intake manifold and carburetors. The carburetors look fresh. The vacuum actuators looks new. It has stainless braided plug wires and ignition shielding. The original tri power air cleaner is included. The air cleaner being used was adapted to this hood for functional cowl induction.

UNDERSIDE: Under this car is much cleaner then most. It isn't brand new but you can tell it has been gone through. The front end has clean components. Looking up at the motor it is clean. The Muncie M-20 4-speed is original, #s matching. It has it's original 3.55 posi. The codes match the p-o-p, designated for a 427. The fiberglass floors are very clean, the spare tire carrier is in place. The frame is exceptionally clean, painted a smooth semi gloss black.

Honest impression: The car is actually very impressive in a lot of ways. The body, interior, chrome, paint and underside condition is exceptional. The wiper door molding should be repainted which is minor. To return it back to stock you would need to replace the hood and put original air cleaner back on. Minor issues considering it's a #s matching, documented 427 tri-power!
