If your looking for a classic car that is elegant, luxurious and beautiful."This may be the car for you". I don't think you can get a better color combination than black paint and red interior, both look extra good on this car. The chrome gleams and the glass is crystal clear. The car is powered by a 390 engine, connected with a automatic transmission and 9 inch rear-end. Power brakes and prower steering. Air conditioning and a after market sound system with CD changer in the trunk. This is a real nice car, its not a perfect roll out of the trailer show queen, but its as nice as I care to drive on the street.

OVER 90 PICTURES BELOW, just scoll down to see them all.

TITLE is a clear Kentucky title with VIN numbers that match the car. It is in my hands!

HOW IS THE PAINT? I consider the paint job very good. I see no dents, no dings, no rust bubbles. The paint is super slick and has a brillant shine. The body is very straight when you look down the sides, it was block sanded very good before the black paint was applied. When wiping the car after washing I saw a super minor place on the hood and one some where else that was not sanded perfect, but its better than 9 out of 10 black paint jobs.

HISTORY: I bought the car from a old man at a big car show in Pigeon Forage, Tennessee. He was from Kentucky and said the car was from Tennessee before he got it. I am 69 years old and bought the car to resell. Its a beautiful car and I wanted to drive and enjoy it a little.

HOW IS THE BODY RUST WISE? I consider it a good body. I see no rust bubbles in the paint, the frame looks solid, the floors look original other than the front bottoms of the floors that have been replaced and the bottom of the trunk, this is better tahn covering rust. It looks to me that the hood, trunk and panels are original as well as the quarters.

HOW DO THE DOORS CLOSE AND THE PANELS FIT? I consider them fitting real good. The doors close good, the trunk closes good, the hood closes good, but you do have to close a little hard.

HOW IS THE CHROME? I consider it all extra good, it shines good and I see no pits or rust.

HOW IS THE GLASS? Very clear, no milky edges, no cracks, the windshield must be new. The windows are power/electric. The 2 fronts work good, the left back works good, the right back does not work. Its probally the electric motor. Not much need to lower the back, the car looks good with just the fronts down, look at the pictures.

HOW IS THE ENGINE? Its suppose to be a 390 cubic inch by code. It is suppose to be rebuilt, I have no documentation. It runs sweet, it is super clean top and bottom, I hear no pings, I hear no knocks, I see no blue smoke. The carburetor is a new looking Holley 4 barrell.

HOW IS THE TRANSMISSION? Its a automatic and it shifts good. It is super clean and suppose to be rebuilt.

HOW ARE THE BRAKES? I consider them super good, they are power assisted and 4 wheel drums.

HOW DOES THE CAR DRIVE? It drives great, it is power steering.

HOW ARE THE TIRES? They look new and are 15 inch. They are not as smooth as I like tires. I will have them balanced, but no guarantee. When car set a lot, tires get flat spots, even radials. I drove the car home about 85 miles and they did get better. No shimmy or super hard shake, but roughness felt.

HOW IS THE INTERIOR? The red interior looks great everywhere I look.

HOW IS THE SOUND SYSTEM? Its one of the after market perfect fit systems, the dash is not cut for the radio. I is AM/FM with a CD changer in the trunk. I have not tried the CD changer, but instructions are in the car.

HOW DOES THE AIR CONDITIONER WORK? The compressor has been replaced with a modern compressor the used modern feron gas. Past owner said it worked, I did try it just setting and it blows and cools, the controls from defrost/heat and cool did not seem just right. I will check it closer and let you know.








GAS GAUGE IS NOT WORKING! The sending unit in the tank looks brand new. The needle is broken on the guage. I could not find a new one so I ordered a used on off ebay motors.

HOW DOES THE FOLD AWAY STEERING WHEEL WORK? To me it works very good, you do have to make sure is is in lock park position.

BEST THINGS ABOUT THE CAR: It looks great, it runs great.

WORST THINGS ABOUT THE CAR: Tires are not as smooth as I like, gas guage is bad.

WHERE IS THE CAR LOCATED? Athens, Tennessee 37303.
