This car is still titled in the original Arkansas owner’s name@! We have tons of documentation including original from the dealership, original registrations and even cancelled checks!
Because it lived its entire life in Arkansas, there has never been rust on this car. You won’t find evidence of any repairs. The underside has been coated, but upon very close examination, there are no flaws. Certainly the fact that it has only been driven 64,000 miles helps.
It has been cosmetically restored to the original Palomar Red Poly finish. It is stunning. I have to believe some of the emblems, bezels, etc. were replaced. They just look to nice to be 53 years old.
The black vinyl convertible bench seat interior is very nice. As is the convertible top. The rear window is plastic, so again, I believe it was replaced. The boot is in very nice condition.
This car was born with some good options like power top, AM push button radio, dual rear-mounted antennas, padded dash, dual outside mirrors and power steering. It was sold new with a 327/Powerglide powertrain. The rear axle is a 3.08/1 ratio.
Recently, the tired 327 was replaced with a fresh 409 equipped with dual Carter carburetors. It looks and acts the part of 425HP. the correct valve covers, air cleaner and exhaust manifolds are in place. This was NOT an original 409 car, but it looks great and performs wonderfully.
At the same time, the Powerglide was replaced with an era correct Borg-Warner T-10 four speed. The proper shifter was used. The steering column was replaced with a four speed column. An era correct tachometer was also installed. New dual exhaust was also installed.
This is a very, very nice car. It has great documentation and a brand-spanking new powertrain. The paint looks very fresh and is show worthy. The interior id beautiful.
I love the entire package and look forward to enjoying. I can think of numerous shows and cruises where I will enjoy the company of this great car. You are welcome to own it and enjoy it yourself. You will be the second registered owner.
