I drove this car home and it's in the top 1% of all the collector cars I've driven. It was so smooth, no shakes, drove straight, rode so nice, the motor ran perfectly.

EXTERIOR: The fit and finish is really excellent on this car. I'm especially impressed with the rubber front bumper, it fits really well. I felt all along the lower body and it is smooth, not a bubble anywhere that I could find. It is straight, panels doors fit square. Repainted it's original Mayfair Maize color but I'm sure it didn't look this good new. The paint is polished out to a glass finish. The black convertible top is like new, it's power and works fine. It has the very desirable hideaway lights, they fit real well, open fine, a little lazy when closing. The grills are excellent. All the stainless trim looks like it's been straightened and polished. The remote mirror, handles and emblems look like new. The rear bumper was rechromed. Jambs are painted slick, weatherstrips were replaced. New windshield. The wheels were upgraded with new 15 inch Rally lls. They have correct lug nuts, center caps and trim rings. They roll on BFG radial redline tires.

INTERIOR: Very nice, unabused interior and it's original! The carpet was replaced and reproduction floormats. The upholstery and door panels are in really great shape considering they are original. The console is in great shape and has original Hurst dual gate shifter. Original seat belts are in great shape. The dash pad looks great, I did not see any cracks. The instrument panel looks really good too. It does have the rally gauge cluster and clock. It has it's original am radio. Everything works including interior lights except the clock and radio do not work.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Show quality motor compartment. I opened the hood and thought wow! All the metal is smooth and gloss black. The VIN number match 400-350 hp was completely rebuilt. All the components o look factory new. Correct chrome valve covers, original manifolds and carb. The air cleaner assembly is complete and restored. It even has the heat riser tube. The alternator, pulleys, power steering, wiper motor, fan shroud all look great. It has reproduction hoses and clamps. The brake booster is cadmium plated with a new master.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It is very impressive, clean and complete. All clean metal with a very nicely sprayed spatter finish. Bottom of the trunk lid and the jamb are just as slick as the outside. The original rally wheel and jack were restored. In the video I mentioned it is a redline tire, it is not. New weather strip, decal and well liner. The trunk light works. A car cover is included.

UNDERSIDE: The body was off the frame for a thorough restoration. The chassis was completely taken apart and restored. The front end steering and suspension was completely rebuilt. The rear suspension was rebuilt with new bushings and shocks. The brake system was completely restored, e-brake assembly is hooked up. The exhaust is a correct reproduction with staggered size mufflers. The fuel system was replaced including the tank, straps, sending unit and lines. Bottom of the motor is spotless, starter looks new. The matching vin is below the bottom radiator hose. The # matching Turbo 400 automatic was rebuilt and looks clean. The driveshaft was restored. Original 10 bolt rear end. The floors are claimed to be original and are super clean. They were prepped and painted black. The body was reunited to the chassis with new bushings.

This is a quality car, unmolested and original. Not only the fit and finish is excellent but also the function. Man, it drove so nice compared to all the others. Try finding a 1 owner GTO convertible, you won't. Investment grade that should be driven to be fully enjoyed!

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.
