i have a deposit on this car but still poking around making sure this is worth what im paying. its been a single owner car for 27 years and the comes with the original window sticker. its a 138 car but does not have the original 283. non power brakes or steering but has a new booster coming with the car. it has a 66 396 with some mild upgrades with a turbo 350. no smoke, and idles very smooth. drives very nice.
the car was restored in the 90 and garage kept since. no rust that i could find. never driven in the rain. entire car was sandblasted at the time of resto. it received a newer frame then, and new interior as well as quarter patches, floors and trunk. to the best of my knowledge the repairs were done at a body shop and i cant see any issues with them. trunk has correct splatter pain over where the quarter patches were, and they tapped out sounding like metal. the car was re painted after the original restoration in 2005 and shows very nice. as far as i can see, its flawless. undercarriage is all nice. no signs of rust or even contact with water. bumpers were re chromed during the resto and show as new. window trim is all very nice. all the glass is very nice.
interior is showing some wear, but its over 20 years old now so i expect it.
a list of issues ive found or he has told me about, not huge issues but little things here and there....
headliner is tired so it could be changed if i want as well as the carpet. radio needs to be fixed as he stated as well as the horn. he had an issue with the hood coming in contact with the fender and lightly chipped the inner pain of that fender. his mechanic told him the hinges needed to be repaired. there quick fix was to remove the springs and it worked , obviously i cant keep it that way.
the hood emblem trim is original and has some pitting as well as the trim on the trunk. the trunk trim is probably the worse off, but is still good at 10 feet. he never painted the trunk section around the trim black like the SS should have came, no big issue to me, but it looks more like someone slapped the badges on the car rather then restore to original ss specs. it needs a fan shroud .
other then that i like the car. the gentlemen is a little older and seemed to take excellent care of the car. that said hes not internet savy so although he said he was a little movable on the price, he didnt move from 20. he had it listed at 27 and slowly moved it from there.
heres a quick video of him starting it up and giving it a few quick gooses
and his add
