Description

Supple black vinyl covers the bomber style low back buckets, presenting with a split seam on the driver's lower cushion, that have a center console racing past them and up to the dash it goes. Here it ascends skyward housing the vertically mounted AM/FM/Cassette radio, and temp control knobs with a large chronograph clock in the center. From here the dash spreads out using 2 eyebrow arched panels, the driver's side housing the gauge and knob cluster, and the passenger side the brushed aluminum panel glovebox. Black padded vinyl covers the dash top "eyebrows" and is all in excellent condition. A teak wood steering wheel fronts this clean and mean dash and adds a touch of warmth to the overall interior. Speaking of warmth, very nice black carpeting is flooding the floors, and a shout out to the door panels which are also near perfection with their molded plastic and chrome trimmings with chromed cranks, actuator and pulls. Behind the passengers a flip up tonneau red fiberglass hinged panel covers not only the top in the down position, but also a faded black carpeted storage area with aftermarket speakers added.
Under the flip forward hood is an example of machined art with a full metal jacket 350ci V8 circa 1969-1979. This is looking fine with polished aluminum valve covers, a single 4-barrel carburetor underneath the chromed air cleaner cover, and the mixture is sent through a dull polished intake manifold. Only a light patina is noted on this otherwise clean and functional engine bay. On back is a Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission which carries a correct casting number for the car but is missing its production and VIN stamps. An AO 52466, (3.70 geared Positraction rear axle assembled May 24th 1966), rear axle puts the power to the pavement.
