Description

Folks, this one is all that and a bag of chips as they say with black painted steel slabs with no rust, but does present with numerous inclusions, dings, paint bubbles, and scuffs. Then there are plenty of chromed bolt ons lighting up the front end, dagmars, and a large chrome bumper on the bottom. A gold egg crate grille, an upper chrome "lip" to follow the hood line, and a beautiful near perfect cloisonne Chevrolet multi-colored badge. On the hood we see a gold wide bodied V with the Chevrolet script in your grandmother's handwriting. Also, on top, dual jet chromed inserts fly forward from the chrome window surround and are near perfect in condition. This hood is a steel unit with a molded in reverse facing fiberglass cowl induction scoop.
A swing of the cool doors and we note black background broadcloth with black stitched flagstone outline pattern within it. A silver vinyl panel houses the window crank and armrest. The flagstone broadcloth is showing some light fading but still presents well. Moving to the front bench, which is split, we see more black broadcloth with the flagstone stitched pattern inserts with silver smooth bolster surrounds complete with correct white piping. These seats show very well with little to no wear and have some chromed buttons thrown on the uppers on backs for giggles and visual enjoyment.
Sitting within the totally restored engine bay is a shiny new looking orange/red GM painted block. It is now a consignor-stated 402 ci V8. It is topped with a Holley 4bbl carburetor and an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold. Allowing you to row some gears is a Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission and way in the back is a 10-bolt rear axle with unknown gearing. Gobs of bling have been added to the restored engine bay as chrome rules for the valve coverings, air cleaner lid, alternator, brake booster and overflow canister.
