Description

Exterior
They say everything is bigger in Texas but I beg to differ as we only need to visit the East hallway of our Hallowed crowded Halls here at Classic Auto Mall to find this trinket. And Texas can kiss my ass! This land yacht is enough to make any Bosun turn crimson with envy, as it presents in good condition overall. As to the exterior specifically, I can see a few scratches, chip offs and faint hints of underlying rust in the seams near the Landau top on the Crimson painted body. The paint retains its shine, as does all the chromed trimmings. Firmly planted in 1977 with its square and rectangle design, it still pulls it off as a stunner and a runner with the V grille, dual square headlights and intricately designed bumper framing the bottom of the chin. A loooooong hood leads us to the windscreen and single w i d e doors for easy access to the back seat. White Landau padded vinyl on the roof's edge in back, complete with an opera window inserted frames the back seat. A nice bump up curve is on the tops of the rear quarters and these flank a NYC 2 bedroom size trunk. The iconic vertical arrow tail lights bring up the rear with another large smooth shiny bumper on the rear roll pan. Large but sleek from the rear view which is just how I like my asses (of cars!).

Interior
A swing of the safe-like doors and we shake hands with some deep red vinyl which has been overstuffed, and molded in plastic accented along with some wood veneer appliqué to highlight with some luxury. Stainless steel panels house the toggles and actuator insert with red carpeting on the bottoms same as the interior plush, pristine and pretty. I plant my butt on the overstuffed recliner like living room chairs within this cabin in front. Here we have wide tuck and roll panels draped in leather that sacrificed many cows to cover these babies. Throw in some buttons and a central up and down armrest, and I'm ready for my afternoon nap after my after-lunch chocolate chip cookie, (call me high maintenance but I digress…). Noted is NO HUMP as this is a front wheel drive car, and besides humps are so pedestrian! In the back is more luxury with a long wide rear bench in the same style as the front chairs. The front seats are power and our consignor states the driver's side does not work. Gazing out the panoramic windscreen then downward my eyes go to the dash which is pure unadulterated GM styling. Also in padded red with more wood accenting, we have numerous panels to house nearly every convenience a car can muster up. This includes climate control, cruise control, variable wipers, high beams, rear defog, and power antenna, (a new unit for this is in trunk and not installed). Also there is a scanning station AM/FM radio, power windows and locks, with a Motorola MOCOM 70 Scanner radio just below. Above a nice pleated white very clean headliner is just to show off. This is just how I like my tops, light and tight, (can I say that? It appears I just did!)

Drivetrain
As I heave the large hood upward, underneath its revealing an appropriate 425ci V8 with a 4-barrel carburetor and a TH425 3-speed automatic on back. There is a 2.75 final drive front axle in, as the remainder and previously described drivetrain is all factory stuff. All very clean as well to boot!
