Carpet and seat belts were replaced as was all seat covers and headliner. Dash is an original 1970, 3 speaker not a reproduction and is near mint. Woodgrain on dash is original and in very good condition, all gauges work although the tach is a little jumpy @ lower rpms. Clock converted to quartz movement.

Engine:
Original HP2 block bored 40 over. 11 to 1 compression, runs great on 91 or 93 thanks to 440 Source aluminum closed chamber heads, quench was set @ .035 . These head look completely stock and did wonders for drivability and idle. Hooker Super Comp headers. Car is originally a 4 barrel but now has 6 pack and works great. Still has some cold idle issues , no heat crossover in intake, but once it warms up it idles at around 1100 with about 14 in of vacuum . 484 Purple shaft MP cam.
Having grown up with these cars, I have never had the need to get it inspected to verify its authenticity. Numbers on block and trans match cowl, radiator support, VIN plate on dash, fender tag and drivers door sticker. Interior was originally light blue and is now black. This is not a rotisserie restored vehicle but is an extremely presentable, well maintained, solid very drivable car. Thanks for looking at it.
