Build date: 11/18/2017

Engine Number AC7771014232

Undergoing restoration.  All original vehicle with no modifications.  Vehicle sat in a garage for nearly 20 years.  The car is undamaged, just older and sitting for a long time.  Here is how we are approaching it:

  • Driveline - we're doing a full rebuild of the engine and transmission.   It's been pulled out of the car and is being torn down.
  • Suspension - the arms are fine and we're going to replace all bushings and shocks.
  • Interior - the goal is to replace a few worn areas with period-correct material and colors.   It's currently only in fair condition.
  • Body - structure is fine
  • Paint - we want to leave patina - currently fair to good condition.  Will be brought back to good appearance by our detail shop
  • Bumpers - currently in rough condition (vinyl covering has de-laminated from the bumper substrate) but we've got good bumpers from a donor car.
  • Electrical - will address as necessary

 

Generally, all parts will be kept original where possible and replaced only as necessary. 

We're in the early stages of taking the car apart, so we don't have a price established for the car.  That will depend on parts/labor and level of restoration we ultimately achieve.
