This is one of the originals! This car has been in the family
for decades. Only 96,432 original miles on original engine. Engine
is original (except converted to more reliable alternator system
vs. generator - professionally installed - you won't be able to
tell!)Equipped with after market factory installed air
We have had this car a very long time - about 1978, my Dad bought if for my brothers 16th birthday. Two years later when I turned 16 it was given to me as my first car. Before moving to California in 1980 my Dad had the car "restored". Basically, the interior was redone, and a new paint job. As the story goes my Dad purchased the car through a friend that owned a car dealership in Tucson, Arizona. This friend acquired the car from the original owner that purchased the car in California. The original color of the car was maroon with black interior, but she changed that and, this "little old lady from Pasadena" had air conditioning put in about two years after buying it new. In approximately 1988 I had the generator converted to an alternator - it was becoming a nuisance to find a generator that was reliable. The transmission was rebuilt in 2003. This car has been either garaged or under a car cover since we have owned it.
The car runs well for being 51 years old! As with anything this old, it rattles a bit. We take it out a couple of times a month to just cruise around. If you are looking for a classic car that is ready to drive, this car is for you!
**According to the VIN, this is a 289 V8; but on the side of the car the emblem is a 260. We have no idea why, we bought the car this way.
This is truly an American classic. Please call 208-420-2368.
