Always garaged.

PO died and I bought it not running , but it's good now. It started as a v6 but was converted to v8. Done right, with all components from late model convertible used.Drove it to Roswell NM and down route 66, 1600 miles no problems.

Car really needs to be driven to be appreciated , it's tight, rides stock, and has enough power to get out of it's own way.

Looks like someone stuck a cover over the dash at one point and you can see where the adhesive pulled color, has a crack that runs between 3 holes in the center speaker opening
Speedo is like 5% off.

Bump up, 83 got it's new motor, time to clear up the garage space. This is a gentleman's hot rod, not a teenager beater. Would give up to 1500 trade in for a non rusted fox roller.
