Rare! Big 425 motor with a factory 4-speed and posi rear.
Documented with build sheet and Protect-o-plate. Less than 500
miles since a professional body off frame restoration. This car was
restored by a serious car collector for himself, not for resale. He
loves big cars and 4-speed is an absolute must. It's time to thin
down his herd, this is one of three we acquired from him.
