This is a 1972 'cuda originally equipped 340. 4-Speed car with Power Steering. Power Brakes. Tinted Glass. Rallye Dash. Light package (including fender -mounted turn signals). nbsp;and Air-Conditioning.    Originally it had no console and a single driver's side mirror.   These items were added when I restored the car.   So. you will not see G36/G37 (dual mirrors) or C16 (console) in the fender tag decoding below.   It is an original FY1 Lemon Twist car with white interior and white stripe.   I did not care for the yellow/white combination and especially the white stripe.   In fact. I don't like the 72 stripe really. so I installed black interior and did not replace the stripe.   One could easily change these things back to original. simply a matter of personal preference.   The paint is a very nice driver-quality job with some minor flaws. It shows very well on the street and at local shows.   It would not describe it as a concourse show paint job.   It is now equipped with a potent well-appointed 440 Six Pac.   So. the engine (and transmission) are not original to the car.  This is what some might call an "over restored" car. I bought the car in 2003 and totally restored it to the current condition over several years of intense work.   It has been driven very little since the restoration and has lived in a heated. cooled and dehumidified garage.   The car has 100% all of its original sheet metal and has had NO RUST EVER! The VIN matches on the VIN plate. cowl. fender tag and radiator support.   Obviously the motor and transmission do NOT match as both have been replaced.   The A/C has been upgraded using a modern Classic Auto Air "under hood" Refrigerant 134a kit with polished Sanden rotary compressor.  The A/C currently is not functioning properly (has a refrigerant leak) and will need attention.  Everything else works on the car; right down to the seatbelt buzzer and ignition key-in buzzer.   Because blue was the correct color for the 340. but orange is the correct color for the 440. I decided to paint the engine and air cleaner base Lemon Twist to match the body color.   The remainder of the items under hood retain stock appearance.   It has modern 17" Road wheels with B F Goodrich radial tires.   The AM radio has been replaced with a modern electronic AM/FM retro stereo that looks identical to the original.   The entire interior of the car was restored to retain 100% original look.   You will just have to look closely at the pictures to really understand and appreciate the level of restoration and quality of the endless list of new and/or restored items and the detail.   I have some pictures of the restoration process available for those interested. It is NOT restored to a concourse original level with stampings. markings. 100% correctness. etc.   It is simply tastefully and meticulously done.   No item has gone untouched or unconsidered. Every nut. bolt. wire. clip. strap. bulb. spring. plug. bumper. insulation. trim piece. etc. . etc. has either been replaced with NOS. or new reproduction part; or has been reconditioned and cleaned; particularly the parts original to the car that were in good condition. and/or where QUALITY parts are not readily available.  It is my personal preference to retain ANY parts original to the car that are in good condition. so in those cases many items were kept.

All sales are final. This car is sold AS IS WHERE IS with NO warranty expressed or implied.   I reserve to end this auction at any time as I have the car for sale elsewhere.   Please ask any questions before placing a bid.   Shipping cost to be paid by buyer.   I will assist with pick up and loading by your chosen carrier.
