Only 2,700 miles traversed since an extensive body-off-frame restoration! A perfect amalgamation of vintage aesthetics with modern performance and reliability. This restoration spared no expense—inspect closely and you’ll concur! This is the reason behind my acquisition; the glass, trim, and bodywork are of show-stopping quality. The potent 454 engine coupled with an overdrive transmission provides an ideal blend for both spirited stoplight dashes and serene highway cruising.


Unquestionably remarkable. Acquired at a show in North Carolina, I found myself, post-purchase, enthusiastically displaying the immaculate trim, pristine glass, and intricate details to my daughter like a bona fide car aficionado. This unique one-year body design is arrow-straight, devoid of rust or damage. The doors operate with a fresh, new hardware smoothness. Coated in onyx black, the paint is polished to a mirror-like finish—you could quite literally shave by its reflection. Every single chrome piece and trim element has been either replaced or meticulously restored. All-new glass, with even the chrome window frames replaced. Up front, the hood trim was removed, and the grill was blacked out for a sleek appearance. The rear is adorned with a continental kit and dual antennae. It boasts an impressive stance on polished ET wheels and Cooper tires.


From carpet to headliner, everything has been completely refurbished. The seats have been reupholstered in the correct tri-color fabric, with the rear featuring the distinctive lift-up armrest. The door panels are authentic, complete with anodized inserts. Armrests and handles have been replaced. The dashboard has been entirely restored: repainted, with new trim, instruments, and a retrofitted stereo system. Air conditioning has been neatly installed beneath the dash. A beautifully polished wood steering wheel takes center stage for the driver. The headliner and visors have been replaced, with some lights operational.


Marvel at the sight of the 454 under the hood! It also features air conditioning, power steering, and brakes. Claimed to be a GM crate 454, it includes an aluminum intake, Edelbrock carburetor, and Accel ignition. Sanderson headers flank each side, while the front sports a complete March billet runner system. This encompasses a serpentine belt with aluminum pulleys, brackets, a polished alternator, a mini polished a/c compressor, and a polished modern power steering unit. An oversized radiator, aluminum water pump, engine fan, electric fan, stainless hose, and polished overflow bottle ensure it runs cool. Extras include new hinges, a billet dipstick, Heartbeat air cleaner and plug wire holders, braided hoses, electric choke, and more.


The inside is pristine metal painted black, with new reproduction weatherstrip, seat divider, and rubber mat.


The front-end steering and suspension have been completely rebuilt, with an upgraded sway bar. The rear suspension has also been rebuilt, with upgraded shocks. The entire brake system has been rebuilt and upgraded to disc brakes in the front, with the e-brake connected. A new fuel system, including the tank and an upgraded electric fuel pump, has been installed. Custom exhaust is neatly bent along the x-frame with Flowmaster mufflers. The motor still looks new with a high-torque starter. The 700R-4 overdrive automatic transmission has been rebuilt and features a vented oil pan. The floors and chassis are clean metal painted semi-gloss black.


Post-inspection, we’ve replaced the water pump, installed a gas pedal rubber pad, replaced power steering hoses, and repaired the brake lights.

Indeed, the options list is impressive, but what truly astounds is the condition. I scrutinize countless vehicles, and this one is exceptional. The more you examine it, the better it gets! And, yes, the 454 engine is pretty cool too.
