History
Car was built in Massachusetts, originally sold in NY (Long Island) and spent most of its life in Texas.
After a hard life, (drag racing, street driving, street parking, gas prices, waiting to be restored etc etc.) it was carefully restored by the gentleman I bought it from.

The car was purchased as it sits to be enjoyed every chance I get.




Modifications

Drivetrain
Thumper Cam:
This would not have been my first choice, but it does sound good and seems to work well with the stock set up.
(Q jet, cast iron intake, oval port heads & cast iron exhaust manifolds.)

Pertonix distributor and coil:
Works great, looks “stock”
Interior
Restored to “original” using as many original to the car, original to donor cars & NOS parts as available.
Exterior
V V - Sequoia (Green - Gray) No stripe
Audio
AM look, Bluetooth compatible.
Dual speakers in the dash and 6x9s in the rear deck.
Lighting
T3 bulbs up front.
Exhaust
2 1/2” mandrel bent aluminized pipes / Stainless Magna-flow mufflers.
Suspension
Stock.
Wheel and Tire
Date coded original 14” Steelies painted body color with NOS dog dish hubcaps.

Eventually I’d like to get a set of 15s painted the same and run wider tires out back.
