A custom showpiece. Custom made air cleaner shroud has a chrome spear similar to the hood ornament. There are many polished parts. The firewall has been smoothed out. The motor is completely rebuilt. It is a 454 bored out to 468. Dyno tuned to 400 hp.
The underbody is all metal coated in a durable soundproofing and rust preventing chip gaurd that was colored to match the original red oxide. The frame and chassis is all a smooth satin black. Upfront is all new steering and suspension. Has fat tubular control arms and gas shocks. In back it has a Ford 9 inch rear, new suspension. The wheel wells have been mini tubbed for the 12 inch wide wheels. There is an oversized oil pan, aluminium trans pan on the turbo 400 auto and aluminium flywheel cover. The exhaust is mandrwl bent and has Flowmaster mufflers. Has disc brakes at all 4 corners.
Laser straight with a reflection you can read a newspaper in. Outstanding body and paint by the Kandy Shop in Mesa AZ. The body was stripped to bare metal, epoxy coated then a base coat clear coat finish was applied. It was block sanded and polished like glass. Has all the stock trim and chrome, every piece replaced or restored. Every piece of glass was replaced. Every weatherstrip and gasket was replaced. The wheels really stand out, big chrome 22s in back and 20s in front. Each wheel has a thin dark red stripe that's a nice touch.
Very classy. The rich leather upholstery was expertly designed, stitched and installed. Expertly cut and installed carpet all with sewn edges and floor mats to match. The dash is beautiful. The black metal is painted as smooth as the exterior. Has a really nice set of gauges including a tachometer. Vintage Air and Heat controls are in original location. Also has a tilt wheel, a floor mounted Lokar shifter, power windows and even power vent windows. The headliner still features the chrome ribs. The stereo system is hidden.
