The previous owner purchased car from a private collection in
Hickory NC. The car was an unrestored original and it was sold for
$67,000. After it was purchased, the owner did a no expense spared
frame off restoration starting in 2014. The chassis was powder
coated and all new lines, hose, brakes were installed. The chassis
built to factory specs. While that was getting completed, the body
was restored back to original in the factory color code Burgundy.
The body panel fitment and front bumper is superb. The end result
is a Grand National Show winning muscle car that runs and drives as
good as it looks.
The number matching 455 HO engine was rebuilt to original specs.
The engine is the Code WA block and last digits of the vin number
are on the block. The motor is totally correct with the original
one year only 455 HO #64 heads. The special calibrated carburetor
is also the original ( Carburetor # 7040267). The distributor is
also the original and special for the 455 HO. (distributor #
1112012; Date code 9J23). All parts are very rare 455 HO only
parts. The car also has a heavy duty M-21 Transmission, and a heavy
duty 12 Bolt Posi traction rear end. The L-75 is the true meaning
of a muscle car with it 500 FT/LBS Torque. The car is very powerful
and shift through the 4 speed smoothly. The car breaths through the
concourse Garner dual exhaust system. The L-75 has a great sound
out the exhaust that will make you want to drive it more.
