After short review of the photos on this car, you will notice something very different, very special. This is clearly a muscle monster in its day. A 429ci 370hp Cobra Jet Ram Air Hurst 4speed car. All the muscle in the world at that time yet the owner chose to finish it with a Medium Ginger Broadcloth bench seat. Whoa, very different for sure. Surely leather buckets were available but this guy chose to do it his way and today we say Good for Him! It looks outrageously cool, very different and its still a 429ci Cobra Jet with a factory 4speed.
