Real SS, California car and believed to have original metal! Body off frame restored! I was at a show in MN and a friend of mine that builds cars was there. The problem was we both had our sites on this one! We both recognized its quality throughout and loved the sound and the color! I told him let's flip for it, heads I win, tails you lose!

EXTERIOR: Repainted in the 1 year only Royal Plum, this is the reason I had to have this car. The paint was applied with great precision then polished to a glossy and reflective finish. It's a beautiful color and sets it apart from the others. Looking down the side of the body is 100% laser straight. All the panels are nicely aligned, and the doors close like a new car. It has all the fixings of an original SS, because it is, 138 is in the VIN. From the blacked out tail panel to the correct emblems and the dual bulge hood this SS is correct and proper. It's got a fresh vinyl top and all new chrome and trim. It also has all brand new glass with new seals and fuzzy strips too. It's sitting on factory style rally rims that are wrapped in virtually new 15" reproduction radial redline tires.

INTERIOR: Everything looks new from top to bottom! The headliner, visors, seats, door panels, dash, carpeting, and even the 4 speed Hurst shifter have been replaced and look amazing. It also has brand new seat belts front and back so you can cruise with the entire family. The builder added a Bosch triple gauge, and it has a factory "blinker" tachometer. The only things that appear original are the rearview mirror, dash gauges, and a couple of dashboard knobs, but these are all in very nice condition. It has a retro stereo in the factory hole with new speakers too. It's even got a nice set of rubber floor mats. This is a beautiful and complete interior!

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The 396 engine has been built and is easily making 400+ hp. It's upgraded with a solid lifter cam, high rise Edelbrock Victor Jr intake with a dual feed Holley carb and an MSD ignition system. It's flanked with a set of long tube Hooker headers. Brand new hoses, wires, belts all the way around. It has power brakes. New brake master cylinder, steering gearbox, and radiator all look fresh. It's equipped with a Delco battery topper, dual horns, and even the squirters are hooked up. The underside of the hood has fresh black paint and is complete with insulation. The fender wells and firewall have both been neatly painted black and it's complete with the original cowl tag.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The underside of the trunk lid and jamb have been repainted slick just like the body. The builder added reproduction stickers and the weatherstrip has been replaced. Believed to have all original and solid metal. That was the seller's claim, and my buddy is a body man who confirmed it. It is complete with a full size spare tire, jack assembly, and rubber mat.

UNDERSIDE: With a full body off frame restoration, this car looks amazing from any angle including underneath! Most of the steering components have been replaced and look fresh including the gearbox. The front suspension has been rebuilt with fresh ball joints, shocks, and springs etc. The rear suspension has also been completely redone with new shocks and springs too. It has power disc brakes up front with fresh calipers and lines. The rear brakes also look great with new lines and even the emergency brake is hooked up. The exhaust system has been highly upgraded with long tube headers and 3" pipes all the way back. It also has a crossover and dual Flowmaster mufflers that sound tough. The entire fuel system looks replaced including the gas tank, lines, and filter. Peeking up at the 396 cubic inch it looks great with fresh Chevy orange paint. Additionally it has the correct dated Muncie 4-speed trans. And the correct dated 12 bolt posi rear with 3.31 gears as well. The floors are all solid and smooth metal that look beautiful with fresh black paint.
