History
This car belonged to my dad. It sat in his garage storing boxes in the bed for the last 20 years of his life. When he died I brought the car to San Jose from Oregon. I have put enough money and effort into the car so it runs nicely. Electronic Ignition, wires, plugs,new modern carb, repaired exhaust, new master cylinder, new fuel pump, new radiator, hoses, etc.

Had the suspension reworked, springs, shocks, front end joints, tie rods etc. Had the brakes redone as well.

Modifications

Drivetrain
Stock 350 engine. 100K miles. Had valve covers leaking oil so the engine had deep filth all over. Removed the valve covers and cleaned it all up but discovered small coolant leak into oil so I replaced the intake manifold gasket.
Interior
Good shape. One tear in the bench seat. Re-covered, new springs.
Exterior
Repainted the car - Was Gold. Now 'Butterscotch'.
Audio
In good shape
Suspension
Load Levelers and heavy duty springs + sway bar in the rear. New heavy duty shocks in the front.
Wheel and Tire
15 inch wheels with the Cragar look. Raised letter Goodyear
