Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.05) based on 97 votes

This car is a survivor and is pretty much all original. I put new reproduction factory style Good Year GT Radial tires on it in 2014 that cost over $1600 and a new Delco battery in 2015. I do not have the original tires or battery. Everything else on the car. aside from the oil filter. is the way it came from the factory. The oil filter is the same type that came on the car new and I have several of them NOS. The car was ordered with most available options… the L82. automatic. PW. PL. a/c. sport mirrors. cruise. tilt/tele. 8 track stereo. rear speakers. power antenna. rear defrost. Gymkhana suspension. 255/60 tires. aluminum wheels. convenience package. leather interior. and Silver Anniversary paint. Everything works like it should except the washer pump.  The clock and power antenna have been rebuilt.

Last year I had the car judged by the local NCRS chapter and received a Top Flight award. All numbers match as they should. The belts. hoses. wipers. air filter. and anything else you can think of are original to the car. I'm confident it could be driven anywhere if the belts were changed. All fluids have been maintained. I usually drive the car at least once a month (except winter months) to get everything moving and lubricated.

The car is in pretty good condition considering its age but it is not perfect. There's a few small chips in the paint that have been touched up but the car still presents very well. The interior is impeccable. The underside of the car is solid and still has all its original factory markings and tags. There is some surface rust on parts that weren't painted from the factory. i. e. exhaust pipes and springs. The engine compartment is very clean. The car has never been wrecked or smoked in and has always been garage kept.  I have the original documentation from when the car was bought new. like the dealer paperwork and window sticker. Build sheet is still on the tank. Everything will go with the car including the NCRS paperwork and judging manual. This is a show car that would be great for anyone's collection or just drive it as is. I would consider trading up or down for a decent driver 68-72 C3 coupe with a 4 speed.

Please do not bid if you do not plan on purchasing or you don't have the funds available. I require a $250 deposit within 24 hours of auction end and it is nonrefundable. Car must be paid in full within 7 days by certified bank check. I encourage anyone to come inspect the car in person before purchasing. I reserve the right to end the auction early. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or for more pics. The car is being sold as-is with no warranty implied. I will not ship the car but can help with loading if the buyer chooses to arrange shipping. Thanks for looking!
