There is a AM/FM/cassette installed in the car in 1974 (with receipt & manual), and I still have the original AM/8 track radio as well. Recently new 245/60/R15 BF Goodrich T/A's on the original 15x7 factory mags. I still have the original F60-15 Firestone Wide Oval spare tire mounted on the original factory mag, which has been stored in the house for the majority of the last 45+ years.

I ordered this car brand new when I was a senior in high school. After going to 4 different dealerships to get price quotes, I returned to J.E. Engels Chevrolet in Mineral Point, Wi. to order the car.

I have the original paperwork dated 2-7-73 from the dealership giving me the purchase quote, I have the original purchase contract dated two days later, on 2-9-73, for the sales agreement when I ordered the vehicle. I have the original paid in full dealer receipt dated 4-7-73 when I picked up the car. I also have the original factory, 1973 New Vehicle Inspection Procedure sheet showing engine, transmission, and rear axle numbers with boxes check from it's test drive and visual inspection at the plant before loading on the hauler to ship to the dealer. And lastly, I have the original window sticker, owners manual, and all other pertinent related material.

As far as I know, the factory build sheet(s) is still hidden somewhere in/on the vehicle, and surprisingly, have yet to look for it.

All in all, enough legitimate paper work to prove the provenance of the vehicle from day one.

I have it insured through Grundy Collector Car Insurance for a stated value of $43,500, and am offering it for sale here for $39,995.00.

Due to a broken valve spring returning from a car show, the motor has just had a recent complete re-build, meticulously executed by Bob Siegwarth at Iowa Speed & Supply out of Otter Creek, Ia. His attention to detail and professionalism is second to none......I'm impressed and can highly recommend him without reservation.

The motor was built to be basically an "upgraded" period correct version with new hardened seats for unleaded gas, stainless valves, 9-1 compression, stock intake, re-built Quadrajet carb, and original exhaust manifolds, but we did switch out the cam for a Comp Cam and the electronic ignition conversion. A new clutch, pressure plate, and throwout bearing were installed, and the flywheel resurfaced. All the original factory smog equipment is still intact.

The motor was broke in and tuned on the dyno before being re-installed in the car.

Max HP is 294, and max torque is 340. It's hard to call it a torque curve, as it's more of a flat line. With the 3.73 gears, the car's running 3000 RPM's at 60 MPH, so there's 325 ft lbs at 2500, and 325 at 4800, the torque's sweet spot is right where it needs to be at cruzing altitude.  A copy of the dyno printout is posted.
