I kind of hate to put this ad up and offer the car for sale, but I just don't like letting the car sit there in my garage. If the car were a completely restored "trailer queen", I'd be OK with it. But this is a car that should be driven and enjoyed. I just haven't used it like I thought I would, so I'd rather see it go to someone who can put it to use. If nobody buys it, I'll keep it, my kids love the car. Here's more info on it, along with a link to pictures. I took a bunch of close ups at the request of someone who had been interested in buying it.
This car had it's original owner from 1965 until 2008. It was then bought by a fellow member of this forum (I think he went by Radioburningchrome). I bought it from him over the summer. I bought it with the plan to use it to take my wife and young kids out to cruise nights, the ice cream shop, etc... Since we've had it, we've only used it 2 or 3 times. We're just too busy, and the car just sits in my garage, so that's why I'm putting it up for sale.
It has 130,000 original miles. To my knowledge, the engine has not been rebuilt or overhauled. It's a 425ci V8, 2bbl carb. 310hp and 390lb/ft of torque. 3 speed auto trans. It runs and drives amazingly well for it's age. Engine has tons of power, trans shifts fine. Steering works fine, though if you're familiar with mid-60's GM, "steering" is a relative term. The car seems to have had routine upkeep all its' life. The guy I bought it from also did some work on the car, such as suspension bushings, cooling hoses, fan belt, etc... That said, it's by no means perfect, hence my cheap asking price. Interior is in decent shape, but not great. Same for the body. It's OK, but it's not a show car. It's a cruiser. Minimal rust.
I've got a ton of spare parts to go with the car. Extra body trim (not in great shape, but it's there and salvagable), misc parts, etc... I have the original keys and I'm pretty sure I got a copy of it's build sheet.
The only thing I've done to the car since I had it was have a set of 5 seat belts installed. The car had lap only belts in the front seat. I had lap/shoulder belts installed. Two up front, 3 sets in the rear. That was done by a professional mechanic, not me, so it was done right. I've got the original lap only belts.
Here's a link to the pictures.
Price is $2000
