Vehicle Description

True barn find...was in a dry garage for twenty years until I bought it two years ago. It ran from the moment I got it. Just a lucky and charmed car. Since I have owned it, here is the work that I had done: New Ocean Turquoise and GM white enamel mixed to the original formulas New 3M Din-noc wood panels professionally installed Battery Tires Carpets Seats reupholstered Headliner redone as original New exhaust Radiator and heater core flush Master cylinder and brakes All fluids and tune uo There are a lot of other small things I am not remembering, but no expense or attention was spared. It starts, runs, and drives really, really well, All lights, signals, and controls work.AC blows cold and has the original R12 in ir Heat blows hot Lighter works Tailgate electric window works Original AM radio works! Has original manuals with protectoplate and such Glovebox and underhood light work Rear cargo light works Front dome light has stopped working Car is fantastic to drive. Fast, smooth and straight. Rocket 350 with two barrel is QUITE fast, no problem keeping up with modern traffic.I had it out to 100 mph anc there is more to go, but that's not how I drive, just wanted to see what it could do. Handles and brakes just fine. It's not a small car but it's certainly not a boat. It's on the intermediate Cutlass platform, not a giant whale. much more agile and easy to get around and park. There is a ton of room inside. Four sunvisors! All the seat belts. Original jack and tools. Storage compartment(spare is in there now but needs to be properly stowed in it's compartment on the side instead with the jack and tools. There is no rust I can see anywhere, even underneath. Look at the door jams and underside shots. There spare is an original bias ply tire, when I got the car it had all four bias ply original tires on it holding air but they were not really safe(or fun!) to drive on and new modern whitewalls were installed and balanced and aligned, they have very few miles on them. Car could be concours level with a little detailing and effort, certainly it will win at local shows.I am driving it regularly and VERY much enjoying it, but winter is coming and storage is an issue and I need to sell off a few toys so they don't sit outside. If it does not sell here it will go to Mecum and will go for more.
