No question the 1958 Impala is a landmark automobile, and has rapidly eclipsed its popular Tri-Five siblings in terms of desirability and value. This stunning resto-mod retains everything that was great about the stunning Impala, and adds a few modern conveniences to create what is perhaps the ultimate 50s luxury cruiser. The 58 Impala never looks as good as when its dressed in pastels. With light blue paint and a white roof, it has a pure 50s look that really emphasizes the dramatic one-year-only styling. During the restoration, they took their time so the doors fit extremely well, the gaps are quite good, and all that glittering trim was carefully aligned to give it exactly the look the designers dreamed of in 58. Two-stage urethane creates an high shine that will look this good for years and years, and all the correct Impala logos were faithfully replaced when it was dry. A small fortune was spent on chrome, from the massive bumpers to the delicate fins atop the front fenders to the dual antennas on the rear fenders, all of it is shiny, bright, and in great shape. Very impressive! It has been driven, of course, so perfection isnt the goal, but this is a trophy winner at any local show, especially with the skirts and continental kit out back. Although theres a lot of new stuff under the skin, the interior was restored to factory specifications using blue tri-tone upholstery as original. The beautiful door panels feature blue anodized inserts, and youll note that the big steering wheel was painted to match, complete with white accents like the bodywork. The factory gauges have all been restored, and its possible that the 120 MPH speedometer is no longer just a dream for this car. A/C has been subtly added under the dash, but beyond that its pretty much the way GM built it back in 1958, which was the entire point. The factory AM radio is gone but the AM/FM unit in its place looks pretty authentic, there are correct floor mats for protection, and even the original clock is still in the dash over in front of the passenger. As you can imagine, the back seat is massive and features that trick pop-up armrest, while the equally gigantic trunk is trimmed with a correct mat and includes a CD changer. The top engine in 1958 was a 348 cubic inch V8, instantly recognizable by its W-shaped valve covers. With plenty of dress-up, including a chrome air cleaner and finned aluminum valve covers, it looks as flashy as the rest of the car. Rebuilt 500 miles ago, it was dressed in Chevy Orange paint so theres no question that this is Bowtie muscle. Up top theres an Edelbrock intake manifold and a Holley carburetor, although the original Tri-Power setup is included with the car. The A/C system uses modern components and R134a refrigerant, so its effective and easy to service, and the braking system uses a dual-circuit master cylinder feeding vented front disc brakes for safety. A 3-speed TH350 3-speed automatic transmission spins the original rear end, so its happy around town and on the highway, and the burbling dual exhaust system sounds fantastic blowing through a pair of chrome tips just under the rear bumper. Original wheels and spinner hubcaps give it a retro look and wear fresh wide whitewall radials for better ride and comfort and an authentic look. This is an extremely impressive 58 Impala that captures not only the best of what was possible at the time, but everything that it could be with just a bit of modern technology. Call today!
Dazzling in bright orange metallic paint with a powerful and reliable 350 V8 under the hood, this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air has been built to show, yet drives like a modern muscle car. Tastefully modified, it retains all the styling cues that make the 57s so iconic, but done to standards they just couldnt have imagined when it was built. You can see from the reflections in our photo booth that there are no ripples or waves in the panels, even the big ones like the doors and quarters. Gaps are excellent, and theres something about the way the doors close on cars of this vintage that you cant find anywhere today. Its a solid, precise feeling that suggests the engineers were at the top of their game when they designed these cars. And that orange paint practically vibrates in the sun its so bright. With that lowered stance, it almost looks chopped or sectioned, but I assure you that its 100% as the General intended; its just the awesome workmanship that makes it look so incredible. All the chrome and stainless is in good shape, too, from the big grille with chrome Dagmars to the beautifully polished stainless on the flanks and around the windows. Its got some age on it, but nothing serious and nobody will ever notice the little flaws simply because the overall effect is so jaw-dropping. The interior more than lives up to the promises made by the body. Although it looks totally custom, those are factory seat frames wrapped in custom vinyl and cloth upholstery that neatly disguises the factory stuff, and like the paint, it has been done to an extremely high standard. The door panels have been upholstered to match the seats and everything else was painted to match the bodywork. The original dashboard has been retained and restored, and even the modern AM/FM/cassette radio looks like the 1957 version. A tilt steering column was cleverly added and painted to hide in plain sight, and the custom steering wheel is simply beautiful. Other features include heat and A/C (needs to be serviced), power windows, and a nicely finished trunk that looks just as trick as the rest of the interior. Power comes from a 350 cubic inch crate motor that looks right at home in the Bel Airs engine bay. That billet air filter feeds a Carter 4-barrel carb, and the aluminum valve covers sit atop a set of center-bolt heads. All the power accessories youd expect are included, from the A/C to the power steering and 4-wheel power disc brakes, making this a car that is daily-driver reliable and show car beautiful. Underneath, the chassis is nicely finished in black with gray floors, with a big front sway bar, a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission, and a 10-bolt rear end hanging on leaf springs. A custom-made dual exhaust system gives it just the right rumble, and traditional American Racing Torque Thrust wheels carry staggered 215/50/17 front and 255/45/17 rear performance radials. This is an exceptional 57 with a build that could not possibly be duplicated for the asking price. Best of all, its a no-compromises car that is reliable enough to drive every day and beautiful enough to take home trophies. Call today!
I dont care what kind of car youre into, this 1950 Cadillac Series 62 convertible is a big deal. Home of the first modern short-stroke V8, it ushered in a new era of performance without which the small block Chevy might never have been born. Of course, the fact that its also one of the best-looking convertibles of the period is only icing on the cake, making it truly as lovely to drive as it is to look at. GM fans will surely be happy to note that the glossy black paint on this 50 has a period-correct look, which only comes from age. Its not original, of course, but the finish is about 30 years old, so it has a wonderful soft shine that works extremely well on the curvaceous Cadillac bodywork. Tailfins were in their third year and they were a major hit with the car-buying public, and there are more than a few enthusiasts who regard the early P-51 inspired look as the finest of them all. The 1950 Cadillacs were significantly changed from the 1949s, but it was still the envy of the industry and Cadillac was able to sell every car they could build that year. The restoration is holding up very nicely and still looks great cruising down the road or at a show. Panel fit is excellent and the doors close with a remarkable solid thunk that you just dont get today, and its even more remarkable that this is a convertible, not a sedan. Chrome was a big deal in 1950, and thought it would be expensive to make perfect, its in very good condition and it looks right on the car today. Nothing radical inside, either, just pure elegance. Pleated red leather seats front and rear offer seating for six in a pinch, and make no mistake, this is a very big car. The leather is original and beautifully preserved, while the body-colored instrument panel with its light accent band shows some aircraft influences that were popular after the war. A ivory plastic steering wheel with horn ring provides first-class control over the machine (cracks are inevitable after all these years) and yes, this is a Hydra-Matic car, which works well with the power windows, top, and even power seat, to provide a very luxurious environment. The original AM radio is still fully operational and theres a full array of instruments below the oversized speedometer. The tan top folds quickly and easily, and the trunk is nicely finished with original mats and a full-sized spare tire. The 331 cubic inch OHV V8 in this Cadillac was truly revolutionary. 200 pounds lighter than the flathead it replaced, it made more power and torque and got better fuel economy. With its shorter stroke, it didnt mind revving and pulled the heavy luxury car around with real authority. Original Cadillac Blue engine paint, white script on the valve covers, and all the original accessories make for a nicely preserved engine bay that looks right for its age. Now before you dismiss the early automatic transmission, take it for a drive. Remember that it has lower gearing in first and second to really rocket off the line and out back, there are lower 3.36 gears, making it a superlative highway cruiser. Honestly, if you want a 50s Cadillac, a Hydra-Matic is the only way to go. It also sounds great with a single exhaust and modern L78-15 whitewall tires provide a vintage look. This is a very big deal car, and 1950 Cadillac convertibles dont come on the market very often. This is the godfather of all performance cars, clothed in some of the most dramatic sheetmetal of the era. Call today!
This 1960 Ford Thunderbird will remain a favorite cruiser for decades to come simply because cars like this never go out of style. With a great color combination, a smooth and powerful V8 engine, and room for five, this T-Bird remains first-class transportation any way you look at it. Even by 1960, the bold pastels of the 50s were passing out of fashion, and quieter, more sophisticated colors were taking their place. In the same way, the 4-seater Thunderbird was a more grown-up vehicle, more practical but no less beautiful than the original 2-seater. Dramatic styling embraced sweeping elements stamped right into the sheetmetal, ranging from the curve that dips down through the doors to the pointed side streaks that need no chrome to emphasize the cars length. The finish of the code R Moroccan Ivory paint is excellent, with a big investment in the final finish thats all out of proportion to the cars sticker price. The net result is a classically elegant Thunderbird that stands out from the crowd simply by virtue of its quality. All the chrome is in excellent shape, particularly the large bumper/grille assembly up front and the unique taillight surrounds that show you that Ford was still fascinated by the Jet Age. The handsome red and white interior is Ford design at its finest. Fresh seat covers, matching door panels, and red carpets give it a lot of personality, especially with that beautiful white steering wheel in the middle of it all. Forget fake wood and trim, in the 1960s, brushed stainless was king, and the textured dashboard, center stack, and door panel trim show off a variety of surfaces that youll never get tired of looking at from behind the wheel. The factory-issued AM radio remains in the dash with the controls for the power windows neatly grouped on the console. The redesigned 4-seat Thunderbird carries everything youll need for a long road trip in a beautifully restored trunk, complete with tailored carpet with white piping and matching spare tire cover. You can see that there was a lot of money spent on this car everywhere you look. The 352 cubic inch FE V8 under the hood powers this Bird with ease, and it has been dressed to impress with chrome valve covers and air cleaner. The smooth-running V8 delivers easy performance and effortless cruising thanks to a new Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, especially when linked to a 3-speed Cruise-O-Matic transmission and a set of 3.10 gears out back. It looks like the engine was pulled for the paint job and theres correct black engine enamel on the block, so it really stands out against the white paint around it. Underneath, the floors are impressively clean and solid, critical on a unit-body car like this, and theres a new dual exhaust system with mellow-sounding mufflers that are appropriately muted. Obviously this car has never been rusty or even in need of major surgery, so it rides smoothly and confidently down the highway on 215/75/14 wide whites with great-looking wire wheel covers. With second-generation Thunderbirds coming into their own as collectors items, I wouldnt expect this unusually clean specimen with to stick around for long. If this is your kind of ride, dont hesitate and call today!
In the 1980s, these Buick Regals were ubiquitous on the streets, but when was the last time you saw one? Offering a handsome color combination, a familiar 3.8 V6, and incomparable 80s luxury, this 1985 Buick Regal Limited is an awesome throwback to a simpler time thats very attractively priced. The books call this Cream Beige and its a subtle shade of light yellow that looks very upscale on the crisply folded Regal sheetmetal. These were really good looking cars back in the day, offering both a formal roofline and sporty long hood/short deck styling that really worked well. The paint is a respray that was done a few years ago, and its probably better than the original stuff would look today. Sure, its been driven, but theres very little evidence of it and youll be pleasantly surprised by just how good build quality was in 1985. Those big doors close with ease and thanks to healthy rubber weather seals, the interior is as quiet as a tomb. The vinyl half-roof adds some formality, and after seeing all those blacked-out Grand Nationals at every show, this one proudly wears a ton of chrome, all of which remains in very good overall condition. The interior is in fantastic condition. It appears to be almost entirely original, but its obvious that someone took exceptionally good care of it throughout its life. Its almost impossible to see where anyones posterior has been, because the drivers seat is firm, the steering wheel is like new, and theres not even a little depression where youd rest your elbow on the center armrest. The carpets show some minor wear thats probably inevitable on the deep pile they used in 85, and the burled walnut appliques actually look pretty convincing. Options include power windows and locks, factory A/C (needs to be serviced), a tilt steering column, cruise control, and an AM/FM/cassette radio thats probably due for an upgrade since it powers up but doesnt play. You also get a giant trunk that includes the original mouse fur mats as well as a pair of spare tires, one full-sized and one space-saver (we dont know why). Buicks indestructible 3.8 liter V6 provides plenty of grunt in the upscale Regal and is as silky smooth as youd expect. It has been properly maintained, so everything works like it should and the car starts, idles, and runs very much like its 1985 all over again. Its not detailed for show, but it is tidy and you could clean it up to really make a difference without a lot of effort. Given the bulletproof reliability of Buicks 3.8, you can drive this car with confidence just as you might have in 1985. The 4-speed automatic transmission shifts beautifully and the tall overdrive and highway gears out back make this a super highway cruiser ready for a road trip. Theres a brand new exhaust system that features twin tailpipes and a hushed muffler, and while theres a bit of surface scale, this is a very solid car. Factory wire wheel covers are the right choice and it sits on 205/75/14 whitewall radials, as original. This is a car with a lot of potential to go any way youd like, even if thats just keeping it the way it is and reliving 1985. Call today!
Hard to have more fun on four wheels than with a Jeep CJ7, especially one as spectacular as this 1981 Coffee Brown Metallic beauty. With a great paint job and a rebuilt engine, it hasnt even seen a gravel road, let alone serious off-roading, but its ready, willing, and able, particularly with that rumbling 304 under the hood. Were finally getting to the point where these CJs are legitimate collectors items, but youll probably discover that very few are restored to this level. It was repainted earlier in 2018 and has a great shine and fantastic bodywork that suggests this Jeep has always been loved. The CJs shape is unmistakable, especially with the doors and top in place, and thanks to a new paint job and a set of slightly oversized fender flares, it looks incredible. Thanks to professional workmanship throughout, it feels tight and fits together quite well, and while a lot of these CJs led hard lives, this one has obviously been taking it easy since the work was completed. Heck, some Jeep guys might scoff at how bright and shiny this one is, but with a winch up front, big driving lights, and a modest lift, I dont think anyone will question its off-road credentials. Inside, this one is almost too nice to venture into the dirt, with nice high-back buckets with fresh black seat covers and a matching rear bench. Theres also a useful center console with storage and cup holders, and a pair of nice-fitting rubber floor mats over the floors, which have been painted to match the bodywork for low maintenance. The gauges are new, including a tach on the steering column, and theres a new dash pad up top. Theres a great-sounding stereo stashed out of sight with big speakers both under the dash and on the rear fenders, so it sounds great top on or top off. Cool aluminum pedals look racy and the fat three-spoke steering wheel is easy to grab in off-road situations. Of course, a hardtop and metal doors make this an all-weather friend, going a long way towards civilizing the all-purpose Jeep, and theres a bikini top for warm weather fun. In 1981, Jeeps were getting wheezing six cylinder engines which didnt do much to move them through the mud with tall tires. Thats all been remedied here thanks to the installation of a muscle-bound 304 cubic inch V8 which exhibits serious excess horsepower. Freshly rebuilt and fitted with an Edelbrock intake manifold, Holley 4-barrel carburetor, shorty headers, and an upgraded coil, its ready to rock. Those headers dump directly into a mellow-sounding dual exhaust system that tucks up into the frame so no worries about ground clearance. Theres also a modest lift kit, and with the 4-speed manual and 2-speed transfer case, its ready to plunge into the nastiest terrain you can manage. The brakes were fully rebuilt and with power steering, those giant 33x12.50-15 tires and Pro Line wheels are easy to manage no matter where you are. A muscle car for the dirt? Youd better believe it. Not many CJs get refinished to this level, so when you find one this nice, dont hesitate. Call today!
When was the last time you saw an early Mercury Marquis? Fords intermediate brand focused on luxury, and it would be OK to look at this 1972 Mercury Marquis as a bargain-priced Lincoln. Massive, black, and powered by a giant V8 engine, it is a true American land yacht. And since its lived its entire life with the same family, its been very well maintained and shows just 55,653 original miles. Basic black is always a good choice on a luxury sedan, but in 1972, not many people chose it. There were, of course, plenty of browns, beiges, and greens, which makes this one stand out without shouting about it. The paint is original and still looks quite good for being 46 years old, offering a decent shine and only modest signs of use and age. Not perfect, but certainly a dignified car in middle age and you could probably buff out a pretty good shine with some elbow grease. Its truly massive and the design language is a neat mix of Ford and Lincoln, which suits its spot in the lineup just fine. Theres a lot of chrome, of course, and it accentuates the squared-off nose and long flanks without looking over-done. Hidden headlights were still a thing in 1972 and the hood ornament looks an awful lot like Lincolns cross, which was surely intentional. Theres a black vinyl top to add some formality and for being original, its shockingly nice. Most of the chrome is good to excellent aside from the grille between the taillights, which is showing its age. The red brocade fabric interior is just beautifully preserved and a great contrast to the black paint. Yes, theres a little fading on the carpets, which is all but inevitable where red is concerned, but youll note the wonderful diamond-pleated seating surfaces are just fine and show no splits or tears. Likewise, the door panels and dash pad are not cracked or dried out and even the steering wheel shows no signs of deterioration. Fords familiar square gauges give a basic view of the hardware, but this is a luxury car, not a sports car, so what do you really need? Its loaded with features like A/C (needs to be serviced), power seat, power windows, cruise control, tilt column, remote mirrors, and an AM/FM stereo radio. Rear seat space is massive, as is the trunk, which still carries its original carpe set and a spare tire assembly with jack. Fords mighty 429 cubic inch V8 provides motive force and its pretty impressive. Even though smog rules had taken the edge off all engines, the 429 remained effortless in the Marquis. Its nearly silent, pulls like an electric motor, and simply goes about its business without calling any attention to itself. And with so few miles, its in excellent condition and runs great. Turn the key and it fires easily and theres some evidence of routine maintenance throughout the engine bay. You could spend a weekend tidying things up and this would be one heck of a preservation class car, too! The C6 3-speed automatic transmission shifts unobtrusively and with towering highway gears in the 9-inch rear end, its a car just built for road trips. The undercarriage is original but tidy, having never seen winter weather and it sits on big whitewall radials that help with the pillow-soft ride. This is a lot of sheetmetal for the money, and its an unusual car in nice original condition. Altogether, that makes for an easy way to get into the hobby. Call today!
If you attended that Cadillac Clubs national meet last summer, you probably saw cars just like this all-original 1975 Coupe DeVille drawing crowds all week. Why? Originality rocks. You can restore originality into a car, so more and more hobbyists are discovering the joys of a clean, original machine. Dont understand what were talking about? Come drive this fantastically authentic Cadillac and itll all be clear. First off, this is a really BIG car, and after 1976, there would never again be a Coupe DeVille this massive. But that doesnt mean its clumsy, and thanks to tidy proportions it looks great even today. The original Cotillion White paint is in remarkable condition, which isnt a surprise since it has only 41,391 original miles. Theres a soft shine that only vintage paint can capture, and nobody will second-guess you when you tell them that its all original. Theres obviously no rust thanks to a lifetime someplace warm, and although the doors are massive, they fit well and dont sag. And yes, Cadillacs have always been about chrome, and theres a lot of it here, including massive bumpers, bright rocker panel moldings, and trim around the windows. Another cool feature are those pods on the front fenders, which house fiber-optic lenses indicating the status of the headlights, parking lights, and hi-beams. Inside, this Coupe DeVille feels like a living room on wheels, and the pillow-tufted velour seats are in remarkably good condition. The burgundy fabric remains in good shape with no splits or tears, quite remarkable for production-grade materials that are approaching 45 years old. Power accessories were expected at this level, and include a power front bench, power windows and locks, and automatic climate control (1975 was the first year A/C was standard on a Cadillac, by the way). Theres no question the mileage is authentic and it certainly looks like the back seat has never been used. The original AM/FM radio still works, as does the power antenna, which pokes itself up six inches when you turn on the radio, with a manual override just to the left of the radio dials. The massive trunk is fully upholstered with the factory-issued rubber mat, and that may even be the original spare under the cover, along with a full jack assembly. Cadillacs claim to fame in the 70s was the worlds largest production V8, a 500 cubic inch monster that provided effortless torque to move these big land yachts with ease. Theyre also remarkably durable and reliable machines, with a Rochester 4-barrel carburetor up top and an HEI ignition system to light it up. This one wears its original Cadillac Blue paint, factory air cleaner, and all the original accessories are fully functional. Its backed by a TH400 3-speed automatic spinning 2.73 gears out back, so highway cruising is smooth and silent, just as it should be. The single exhaust system has a muted hum that sounds right and the floors are obviously in excellent condition with no significant issues beyond some road grime. Newer 235/75/15 whitewall radials have been fitted to the original wheels, so it rides like a hovercraft and the factory hubcaps are clean and simple, a contrast to the rest of the car. Big luxury cruisers like this are finding traction in the market, and a fantastic original car like this is sure to attract attention anywhere it goes. Call today!
In 1962, the guy driving this cool turquoise blue Impala SS409 convertible was well and truly The Man. Today, thats still true, and when you hear the not-so-subtle rumble of the 409, slip through the gears of the Muncie 4-speed, and watch all the envious eyes on you as you motor away, youll understand. For the guy who understands performance and style, few cars can compare to the illustrious Impala. This is the kind of car that you can recognize blocks away, whether its the lean Impala convertible profile or the traditional triple taillights that were unique to the Imp. Driving this car is like dating a movie star, and you should be ready for question and answer session every time you stop for gas. The glittering blue paint will stand up to scrutiny, and while it was finished a few years ago, its still in fantastic condition. Its a quality restoration that has just the right look of authenticity, making it a high-quality cruiser thats always properly dressed for an event. Fit and finish are quite good, with doors that fit well without needing to give them a hard slam. The sheetmetal is incredibly straight, so the bright paint is a big bonus, not a demerit, because it shows none of the usual flaws a lesser car might have. Chrome and trim is quite good, including the delicate Impala badges on the quarters and crossed-flag emblems up front with the ever-so-small 409 underneath, just in case the guy in the other lane is really paying attention. The interior is pure 60s style, a blend of conservative patterns and shiny trim that looks awesome today. The Impala is particularly interesting due to its unique blend of performance and luxury, making it a rather stylish gentlemans express. The seats wear reproduction covers with proper button-tufted seat backs, theres new carpeting with embroidered SS-logo floor mats, and the door panels show an artists touch. The instruments in that sweeping engine-turned dash are in good shape, and a trio of auxiliary gauges have been stashed under the dash along with a period tach on the steering column (upgraded to be compatible with the HEI ignition system). A convertible with a 4-speed is quite a find, and it looks especially butch with the bucket seats, as if it doesnt care what people think it should be. It also includes an upgraded AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo head unit with subwoofer in the trunk (you think this car was built this way by accident?) and the trunk itself is neatly finished with a correct mat set. Under the hood youll find Chevys legendary 409 cubic inch V8. A legend of 60s performance, its the ultimate early Impala powerplant. With a pair of Edelbrock 4-barrels on a factory intake manifold, HEI ignition, and a healthy cam, its definitely in combat spec. With a recent tune-up and timing set, it runs superbly, although you need to be sharp for a big horsepower engine like this, because it aint no Toyota. Finned valve covers have a matching air cleaner (the stock air cleaner is included with the car) along with Chevy Orange paint give it a flashy look that youll be eager to show off. Other upgrades include high performance exhaust manifolds, a fresh alternator, and a Flowmaster exhaust system that sounds flat-out awesome. Underneath its highly detailed and extremely clean, packing disc brakes up front that are probably a good idea for a car with this much thrust on tap. The weenie 14-inch wheels and tires are gone, replaced by a set of shiny Torque Thrusts and staggered performance radials. A very pretty car with an unusual powertrain combination, this heavily documented Impala will always be on the A-list. Call today!
Perhaps its because there are no more Oldsmobiles being built, but the list of future collectables will surely include cars like this 25,618 original mile 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme coupe. From new, these cars have enjoyed a cult following, perhaps due to their classic yet sporty styling, large dose of luxury, and effortless road manners. As is the case with many old cars, people didnt treat these like anything special when they were new, and as a result, finding a clean one like this Olds can be a challenge. Fortunately, it hails from a warm, dry climate and shows off its fantastic condition with shiny white paint and contrasting blue pinstripes. Thats factory-original paint circa 1984, and its simply beautiful with none of the usual chalkiness and fading you saw back in the 80s. The angular styling has aged quite well, and with the 1984 updates such as the vertical bar grilles and blacked-out headlight bezels, it enjoys a semi-performance look that was a hallmark of Oldsmobile in its glory days. The chrome bumpers still look fantastic, showing no evidence that this car was parked by feel by an elderly owner, and all the bright stainless trim shines up nicely. And we have to admit that we like the padded roof, which makes it look more formal, which is appropriate for an Olds. Inside, its pure Oldsmobile thanks to a pair of cloth buckets flanking a center console and a long list of luxury features. With blue GM mouse fur upholstery, it remains in excellent condition with no rips or tears and very few signs of UV damage, which is more evidence that this car was properly maintained. In fact, the back seat looks virtually new and the carpets and door panels have been carefully preserved by a conscientious owner. Wood accents warm up the all-blue interior, and a familiar-looking steering wheel combines with a ton of power accessories to offer a luxurious experience. Factory A/C, a tilt wheel, and cruise control are included, with the original AM/FM/cassette radio still pulling duty in the center stack. An upgraded Oldsmobile instrument panel includes a full set of gauges, including a tach, and the 25,618 miles shown are indeed authentic. One of the hallmarks of a full-sized luxury car is trunk space, and the cargo bay on this one is very nicely kept and still carries its original space-saver spare and jack assembly. Power comes from the corporate 5.0 liter V8, which is both unobtrusive and effective in its role aboard the Cutlass. Smooth and torquey, the 4-barrel engine gives the car great road manners, and thanks to a recent tune-up, it cruises in virtual silence at any speed. The engine bay is extremely clean, more evidence of a good life with a caring owner, and it has not been modified in any way, despite being a somewhat mod-friendly powerplant. The A/C appears to still use good old R12 refrigerant to make it extremely effective and all the factory equipment, including the air cleaner, is fully intact, which is always a good sign. The chassis and floors are clean, with no signs of life in the rust belt and the transmission shifts crisply and feeds highway-friendly gears out back. Handsome Oldsmobile Rallye II wheels add to its sporty countenance, especially with 225/70/14 white letter radials on board. Lots of fun today and maybe even a smart investment for tomorrow, these Oldsmobiles will always find a ready group of buyers. If youre one of them, give us a call today!
I wonder how the guys who paid massive premiums to own the last 1976 Eldorado convertibles felt when GM rolled out this pretty 1984 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz ragtop. I mean, the choice was natural as the aftermarket had been putting fake convertible tops on these cars for years and the result was actually a really good car, not just a really good convertible. Looking rather handsome in its original paint, which GM called Autumn Maple Firemist (no, Im not kidding), this is the archetypal Eldorado convertible. It shows signs of conscientious maintenance over its life and its likely that very few of these were ever purchased as daily drivers, which would explain both the condition for a car approaching 35 years old. The Eldorados crisp lines lend themselves to convertible styling, and the experts at ASC, who actually built the cars for GM, did a wonderful job of making it look nearly identical to its faux-convertible hardtop siblings with the top up (spotters tip: the convertibles have smaller rear windows). The Biarritz is easily identified by the spear of stainless trim that extends along the fenders and window sills, giving the already very flashy Eldo a lot of eyeball appeal. Its certainly not perfect, but for a car thats been driven and enjoyed, its quite good and shows you that these cars have always been something special to someone. The interior is pure Cadillac overkill, with pillow-tufted burgundy leather seats and lots of faux wood trim, but thats why these cars are so cool. They represent an era when technology was colliding with traditional luxury, and Cadillac worked hard to stay at the forefront. Dig the digital climate control and information center over on the drivers side of the dash, and every power accessory known to man was standard equipment on the Eldorado convertible. Someone has also added a set of tiny auxiliary gauges under the dash, which is probably helpful when your only real gauges are a speedometer and fuel gauge. Twin buckets show modest wear but no damage, and the back seat looks almost completely untouched. Matching burgundy carpets add some dignity to the interior, along with the matching dash and steering wheel, which should look familiar to anyone who drove a Cadillac of the period. Theres also an aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo that sounds great, even with the top down. The white power top slides into its well with a minimum of fuss, where it hides under a matching burgundy vinyl boot. It also includes a massive trunk thats fully upholstered, including the fuzzy spare tire cover. Cadillacs 4.1 liter V8 with digital fuel injection has turned out to be a reliable dance partner in these cars. Smooth and torquey, with surprisingly good fuel economy, it moves this Eldo easily with a muted V8 hum from the tailpipe. The engine bay is orderly, if not detailed for show, with the only non-stock part appearing to be the open-element air cleaner. You could spend a weekend giving it a good cleaning and it would really pay off. The front-wheel-drive 4-speed automatic overdrive transaxle shifts so smoothly you may not even notice it and its an effortless highway cruiser. The all-independent suspension was tuned fur luxury, and youll be thrilled by just how clean this car is underneath. Since 1976, Eldorados have offered 4-wheel-discs, which live behind those sparkly wire wheelcovers and 205/75/15 Firestone whitewalls. These cars have long since passed from used car to collector status, and while you can find low-mile examples with big price tags, if youre into driving, THIS is the one to own. Call now!
Dont be fooled by the 20-inch wheels, this 1964 Buick Wildcat hardtop is still 100% Buick and 100% awesome. Its one of those special GM cars with unique features, and with a monster 425 cubic inch mill under the hood, its just a fantastic piece of luxury muscle with all the right features. There were few more stylish cars on the road than the Buick Wildcat in 1964, with Buicks trademark sweeping body lines and chiseled good looks. Thanks to a high-quality repaint in Sonic Blue, it looks spectacular with a sophisticated air to it that only a Buick could wear. Its two-stage urethane, so the shine is deep and clear and thanks to expert care since it was done, it shows only a few signs of use. Buick was big on drama, so theres a deeply recessed grille, cool gills on the front fenders, and a surprisingly sleek roofline that you wouldnt expect on a Buick. The chrome and stainless trim is original and given that this car has never left the warm, dry south, its no surprise that its in great shape. Sure, theres a little patina to it, but theres no part that stands out as too nice or too shabby to be on this car and since its original, you know its crisp and authentic. This is one great-looking car. The two-tone blue interior isnt totally stock, but its an awesome contrast to the bright blue paint and its all-day comfortable. Thats the original bench seat wearing fresh upholstery and the door panels have been stitched to match. The carpets and headliner were probably replaced at the same time, but again, nothing jumps out as too new or too old so it all looks right. The wide dash has lots of jewelry, including a wide band of bright metal trim to give the Wildcat a sophisticated air, and the only part that isnt original is the billet steering wheel which looks great nonetheless. And if its road trips you enjoy, then the massive back seat and trunk will be assets, with the trunk carrying black carpet that looks clean and tidy. Buicks 425 cubic inch Nailhead V8 was renowned for massive torque production, and its just beautifully detailed. A custom air cleaner sits on top of dual Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetors and an Elco intake manifold, so power delivery is plenty snappy, even for such a big car. Correct turquoise paint makes the engine look correct, and the period finned valve covers and valley pan, it has a bit of a racy attitude. Features include power steering and power brakes, and factory A/C (needs to be serviced) so this car feels luxurious and effortless in everything it does. The transmission is a TH400 3-speed automatic, which would eventually supersede the venerable Dynaflow, and it powers a set of reasonably tall gears out back, making this a great highway cruiser that just loafs along with the big block barely breaking a sweat. The dual exhaust burbles along happily at any speed and youll be shocked by just how clean this car is underneath; take a look! Those 20-inch Ridler wheels make a dramatic statement and are wrapped in 245/40/20 performance radials. This is a beautifully finished car that is big, powerful, and easy to get into, both literally and figuratively. An incredible value, this big Wildcat will definitely surprise you. Call today!
The ultimate lead sled, the archetype, the one that everyone wants, this 1949 Mercury coupe defines the breed. Frenched, lowered, smoothed, fender skirts, it has all the traditional custom styling cues, all wrapped in a gorgeous two-tone paint job that ideally suits the long, low custom. Paired with the bulletproof reliability of a fuel-injected LS2 and a totally custom interior, this is a lead sled thats very easy to love. This car could have been the prototype for every Mercury lead sled built, incorporating some of the most traditional modifications and a few tasteful touches that make it unique. The list of body mods is extensive, ranging from a nosed and decked hood to the frenched headlights to the shaved door handles to the custom grille, which appears to be from a Desoto, a popular modification back in the day. A custom pearl white and pink paint job grabs all the attention, although the point of a custom is to blur the lines so you cant find the mods. The paint glows from within and has a sugary look that makes this car insanely appealing. Big chrome bumpers offset all that luscious paint with a big of flash, plus the stainless lakes pipes that make this car look long and low. Fender skirts are part of the recipe, and there are a few neatly-done pinstripes just for accent. Bright pink and white bucket seats are the perfect complement to the high-visibility exterior, and the overstuffed seats mean this is a fantastic road trip car. With a lightly modified Mercury dashboard full of VDO gauges, it doesnt seem to be trying too hard. Most of the original knobs and switches were maintained, with some being repurposed for other functions like the A/C, which has a custom valence below the dash for a clean look. A tilt steering column carries a leather-wrapped wheel, theres a custom center console with an armrest from a 60s Thunderbird, power window switches, and the air suspension controls. The in-dash A/C uses modern components and R134a refrigerant to deliver contemporary performance and theres a AM/FM/CD stereo in the upper console, right below a clock mounted in the center. Under-dash lighting gives it a cool glow at night, and the trunk is neatly finished without losing functionality, as it carries a full-sized spare tire. For motivation, this one uses a 6.0 liter LS2 V8 with factory fuel injection and engine management. This might be the best-running lead sled weve ever featured, and the highest praise we can offer is that it runs and drives like it was factory built. Turn the key and it fires, it idles smoothly no matter how hot it is, and the integration is seamless. Theres a big aluminum radiator to keep it cool, new accessories tucked in close to the block, and even the firewall and inner fenders were finished to show standards with custom pinstripes. Custom long-tube headers feed a nicely fabricated dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers, so it sounds like performance when youre cruising the fairground. The transmission is a 4L70E 4-speed automatic, so its an effortless cruiser even with somewhat punchy 4.10 gears in the Ford 9-inch rear end. Air Ride makes it smooth, the 4-link rear end keeps it planted, and disc brakes keep it safe. 15-inch steelies with Oldsmobile hubcaps are the ideal period custom choice and they carry modern wide whitewall radials, as youd expect. A lot of customs look great but dont drive very well, but this Mercury truly runs as good as it looks. Call today!
Big, dramatic cars make for big, dramatic customs. Check out this stunning 1959 Buick LeSabre hardtop, which takes the already eyeball-popping Buick to an entirely new level. Fins, chrome, and big wheels make for one heck of a fashion statement, and with big block power, this one isnt just a wallflower. The 1959 Buick already looks like a full custom before you even begin working, so its easy to see why this car looks so amazing. The two-tone black-over-red paint job is dramatic and highlights the cars flattened tail fins, and perhaps not-so-surprisingly, thats one of the ways the factory offered two-tone colors: roof and deck one color, everything else the second color. Obviously this isnt a factory-approved color scheme, but theres no denying that it looks spectacular. Finish quality is trophy-worthy and the list of modifications is fairly extensive, starting with shaving most of the trim and the door handles and blacking-out the intricate front grille. The trim that remains only emphasizes the cars length, and with tinted windows, it has a downright sinister profile. Modern side mirrors look remarkably right on the big Buford, and if anything with fins this big and paint this dramatic can be called tasteful, this is it. Wow. The interior is no less amazing, featuring bucket seats that look retro enough, a custom center console, and that fantastic space age dashboard. Red leather was wrapped around all the seating surfaces and the billet steering wheel, and the workmanship is outstanding. The original instruments with their jet-inspired faces remain the primary view of the engine bay and youll have to fight to keep your eyes on the road because theyre so pretty. The center console carries controls for the Vintage Air A/C system and power windows, plus the B&M shifter for the TH400 3-speed automatic transmission. A thundering stereo system adds to the driving experience and is beautifully integrated into the interior so that it almost disappears until you hear it. Custom LED under-dash lighting gives it a cool effect at night, even with the rather pedestrian floor mats underneath. And as youd expect, the trunk is gigantic, fully upholstered in matching red carpet and tucking the delicate electronics up high out of harms way. Buicks biggest, baddest V8, a 455 cubic inch mill, looks right at home in the LeSabres cavernous engine bay. Obviously detailed to look great when the hood is open, the big block also has a definite OEM vibe to it, from the modest twin-snorkel air cleaner to the stock Dante Red paint on the valve covers. Someone spent the time to get the wiring and plumbing nice and neat, and almost every component was either painted, polished, or plated to look great, even under scrutiny. It starts easily and moves the big car with the kind of torque that you need a big block to deliver, and yet its road manners are sublime and confidence-inspiring. Front and rear suspensions are stock and it carries power steering and 4-wheel Wilwood disc brakes, so its easy to drive despite its size. A Flowmaster exhaust system sounds menacing and theres no denying that 22-inch chrome hoops with 255/30/22 front and 265/35/22 rear tires make a dramatic statement. Fabulous custom looks, yet still 100% streetable and ready to cruise cross-country, this amazing Buick combines all thats great about the 50s with a dose of 21st century tech. Call today!
Theres no doubt the Ford Thunderbird was a game-changer when it hit the market in 1955. Not designed to compete with the Corvette, but surely inspired by it, the Ford was more luxury than sport, but that was just fine in the eyes of Thunderbird buyers, who eagerly bought every single one Ford could build. This lovely Thunderbird Blue 1955 T-Bird has been with the same owner for nearly 55 years. Impressive! Thunderbirds are notorious for rusting in some pretty demonic ways, so finding a solid example is important. The paint is 13 years old but it remains in fantastic shape, making this one of the most impressive early Birds weve seen in a long time. Code T Thunderbird Blue was accurately replicated using modern finishes so its bright and clear in person, and all the chrome shows quite well. To say it was an expensive job would be an extreme understatement, but I think youll agree that it was worth every penny. This car has also been fitted with a correct non-porthole hardtop, which might look odd but the porthole didnt show up until 1956. 1955 also included unique exhaust outlets in the bumper guards and what many enthusiasts consider the most pure shape: no pointed tail fins and no continental kit to mar the lines. This is a great-looking baby Bird! The bright and cheerful 1950s were in full swing inside the Thunderbird, complete with two-tone turquoise and white seats. Thunderbirds came pretty well loaded, but this one also includes goodies like A/C, power windows, a power seat, and a 3-speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission, so motoring is effortless and luxurious, as intended. The seat covers are exact replicas of the original equipment, and matching door panels are like art with their bright trim and sculpted vinyl. The instruments are original and in decent shape, including the sweeping speedometer and tachometer to the left of the instrument panel. Theres also an AM/FM/cassette radio, which fits neatly in the original radios slot. This is a single top car (the base Bird came with either a hard top or a soft top, but both was an extra-cost option), but with the way it looks and the A/C, youll be more than happy to keep the hardtop in place. The trunk offers reasonable storage space, even with the full-sized spare living inside. Power for the Thunderbird is supplied by Fords P-code 292 cubic inch Y-block V8, which makes a robust 198 horsepower. Finished with red Ford engine paint, those distinctive finned valve covers with Thunderbird logos, and a chrome air cleaner, its a study in early industrial design; Ford designers knew the engine had to be pretty in this car! It was rebuilt some years ago and shows signs of use, but it has also been properly maintained so it continues to run well today. It starts easily and drives beautifully, with a crisp V8 burble from the tailpipes providing the perfect accompaniment, and the modern A/C and alternator blend in well enough that most folks wont notice. The suspension is trusty, with soft springs for easy cruising, and drum brakes that are more than adequate for the T-Birds modest curb weight. Classic 6.70-15 Firestone wide whites with standard hubcaps give it a true 50s vibe. Early Thunderbirds are as stable as granite in the market. Buy this one today, enjoy it, maintain it, and it will always reward you with great performance and almost guaranteed resale. Call today!
Another garden-variety El Camino you say? Guess again! This 1980 Chevrolet El Camino is a textbook example of how to build a sleeper the right way. Not flashy, not expensive, but packing a modern fuel-injected LS powerplant and upgraded transmission, a high-performance suspension, and a freshened interior, it delivers all the hardware you need to embarrass some pretty serious machinery. This Elky was repainted in 2017 but they resisted the urge to go crazy with some flashy modern color and instead simply returned it to the same basic metallic blue it had been wearing since 1980. Its quite nicely done, probably better than it was when GM did it, but it gives away nothing when youre prowling the streets looking for prey. There are a few signs of use, which is good news because it means that the truck is not only being used properly, but that it also has a low-key look that wont attract attention. Most of the emblems have been shaved, but tit retains its factory grille, bumpers, and bright wheel arch moldings, so it looks very stock. Even the original hood ornament is still up front doing its thing. Theres no evidence that this was ever a rusty car and they went the extra mile to make sure it is still useable as a truck by adding a color-matched spray-in bedliner. If you didnt know better, youd think this was just a clean, used El Camino. And thats entirely the point. The interior got a freshening, but again, they didnt do anything that would draw attention to the hardware. A factory bench seat with a new seat cover, reasonably plush carpets on the floor, and an OEM steering wheel with a fat wrap are great camouflage. Once youre behind the wheel, however, youll quickly spot the original gauges are gone, replaced by a set of cool Dakota Digital dials that glow in the dark when you hit the lights, as well as a set of white-faced auxiliary gauges neatly installed on the A-pillar. The factory A/C blows cold with modern hardware working behind the scenes and since its so much fun to drive, they figured that the original AM/FM radio would be more good camouflage, even though it isnt hooked up. We have to admit that the more we look, the more we like the purity of the mission on this El Camino. The engine is a 5.3 liter LS V8 with a whole bunch of upgrades. The top end was rebuilt, including a Comp Cams camshaft, larger fuel injectors, and a FAST intake manifold to help it breathe. All the accessories are brand new and a new wiring harness was installed to make the modern fuel injected V8 work in the 40-year-old Chevy body. Theres also a giant aluminum radiator up front to keep it cool, as well as power steering and brakes to make it easy to drive. Theres also a fresh 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission and a throaty Flowmaster dual exhaust system that has that unique LS sound, so its not quite invisible to guys who are paying attention. Youll also note that the floors are super clean and the rear suspension was augmented with tubular control arms and new shocks. And we have to admit that keeping the color-matched factory wheels and a set of whitewall radials is pure genius because nobody will see it coming. With more than $40,000 in receipts for this build, you know it wasnt a half-hearted effort. Looks great, runs great, and totally stays under the radar, this El Camino is sleeper done right.

The 1976 Cadillac Eldorado convertible was truly the end of an era. They have languished for years on the sidelines of the hobby, but they are finally seeing some serious attention by hobbyists who realize that theyll never see a car like this again. Values are going up, so use this as your opportunity to get the last of the big Eldos while theyre still affordable. GM billed the 76 Eldorado as the last convertible, and while that turned out not to be the case, it was definitely the end of an era. Never again will land yachts like this roam the highways, and to most enthusiasts, the 76 was the best-looking of the final full-sized Cadillac ragtops. Fender skirts were gone, the clean front end with rectangular headlights will never go out of style, and despite being over 17 feet long, it wears its proportions perfectly. This one offers Chesterfield Brown bodywork, which was a popular color then thats making a big comeback today. The paint is in good condition for its age, showing a few signs of use and some discoloration on the fender extensions, which is typical (they usually didnt even match on the showroom floor). The chrome is in excellent condition and details like the filler panel below the rear license plate and rubber extensions under the taillights are in excellent shape. However, its the interior that truly sets this one apart. Finished in natural Buckskin leather, it looks almost completely unmarked and doesnt betray its mileage in any way. Even the drivers seat shows a minimum of wrinkles and creases. How they managed that, I cant say, but it is every bit as nice as it appears in photos. The carpets, the dash pad, and even the door panels, which tended to crack with exposure to the sun, are all extremely nice. Theres also an ultra-rare carpeted floor mat, which you wont find in any catalog, and the original AM/FM stereo radio is still in the dash. GMs famous scissor-style power top folds neatly into the well where it takes up exactly zero shoulder space in the back seat, making this a true 6-seater. The giant trunk is outfitted with correct mats, a full-sized spare, and a jack. It was also the final year for Cadillacs 500 cubic inch V8. Smooth and effortless, it moves the 5200 pound ragtop easily. It seems to ignore hills and the load of the A/C compressor, and teamed with the TH425 automatic, it remains a superb highway cruiser. Like the rest of the car, the engine bay is tidy and in very good condition, with plenty of evidence of recent work. It has been tuned and the belts and hoses are new, so its ready to enjoy. The original Quadrajet carb was rebuilt, it wears correct Cadillac Blue engine enamel, and theres R134a refrigerant in the A/C system. Underneath its impressively solid, with a replacement exhaust system and standard 4-wheel disc brakes, which were also just serviced. 235/75/15 whitewall radials are fitted to the original wheels and carry correct hubcaps with black centers, which was a 1976-only feature. Fans of 70s luxury cannot do better than the legendary Eldorado convertible, and this one is extremely good in a lot of ways. Call today!
It shouldnt be news to anyone that big Impalas like this 1968 hardtop are being snatched up by collectors as quickly as we can find them. V8 power, full-sized comfort, lots of options, and a beautiful, almost artistic look and you have one of the sleeper hits of the last few years. This one is a good, clean car in great colors that will be fun to drive and will undoubtedly attract a lot of attention at shows. Bright red always looks sporty, but on something as big and dramatic as this Impala it makes one heck of a statement. The somewhat formal styling of the hardtop Imp lends itself to bright colors and nobodys going to miss this heavy cruiser. Theres no vinyl top like so many of its siblings, so it has a clean, uncluttered look thats accentuated by the single strip of trim running the entire length of the bodywork. It certainly looks sharp and crisp, particularly the arches over the rear quarters, suggesting that it was a clean car to start with, since this stuff isnt available from the aftermarket. No, its not perfect, but this car has the look of a car that someone has enjoyed and properly maintained. There are still six taillights set into the bright chrome bumper out back, reminding you that this is Chevys top-of-the-line machine. And while most of the trim is original, it remains bright and shiny and its obvious that a lot of extra time went into making everything fit together just right. Basic black is a popular choice that will always look good in a read car. The funky patterned cloth upholstery is a mix of original and replacement pieces, and it has survived the intervening decades in very good shape with just minor fading but no rips or tears in the seat materials plus recent carpets that look good. The instrument panel puts everything in front of the driver, with the wide speedometer augmented with a column-mounted tach and auxiliary gauges under the center stack. The original radio is still in the dash but it is supplanted by a Pioneer AM/FM/CD head unit in a neat enclosure underneath. And, of course, you get a massive trunk with full-sized spare, another clue that this car was built for the road. The engine is the original, numbers-matching 327 cubic inch V8 with a few upgrades to make it feel a big more energetic around town. With Chevy Orange paint, it looks pretty correct, but the list of upgrades includes a rebuilt Holley carburetor on a Jegs intake manifold, a fresh electric fuel pump, and a chrome air cleaner. It starts easily and runs smoothly, as youd expect, and with a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power front disc brakes, anyone can get behind the wheel and have some fun. The exhaust system was upgraded to a dual setup, and it gives the car a great small-block note and there appear to be new shocks at the corners. Rally wheels look right and carry big 225/75/15 Khumho radials. These cars are not going to stay under the radar for much longer, and we cant seem to keep them in stock. Dont miss another opportunity and call us today!
This 1980 Camaro Z28 is proof that the muscle car didnt die, it just went on an extended vacation during the mid-70s. With a great-running 350 cubic inch V8, a load of options, and those high-visibility Z/28 graphics, you wont be sneaking around in this one, but then again, why would you want to? The sleek metallic silver paint with tri-tone blue Z/28 stripes give this Camaro a look that captures the era perfectly without looking dated. The car was repainted in 2009 and is nicely preserved, not too perfect but not abused, and the one word that comes to mind is authentic. Either way, it looks right for the period and this Camaro draws a lot of appreciative glances out on the street. The aggressive chin spoiler shows no cracks from run-ins with parking curbs, the lower rockers havent been abused by flying debris, and the stripe package remains bright and vivid against the paint, which has just enough metallic in it to glow but without looking like a bass boat. Judging by the condition of the grille, and the clarity of the taillights, Id wager that this car has spent a good amount of its life protected and indoors, used only as a fair-weather toy. And, as a southern car, you know its not a rust bucket. Sure, there are some signs of use, but this is a nice-looking car that captures what performance looked like at the dawn of the 1980s. The very cool gray buckets will look familiar to any F-body fan, and they are every bit as comfortable as they look. Like the bodywork, the interior is remarkably well presented, with the seat covers, carpets, and door panels being recent additions. The monochromatic look works rather well with the silver bodywork, again a little bit of 70s style without making it feel dated. This Z also includes things like factory A/C, a tilt steering column, a center console, and an optional tachometer (yes, optional, even on the Z/28!). Modifications are limited to a set of aftermarket gauges in the original gauge slots plus a modern AM/FM/CD stereo. If you look closely, sure, you can find a few other spots that are showing their age, but for this price, theres a lot of fun to be had and you can polish up those details over time. Both the 350 cubic inch V8 and the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission were rebuilt in 2009 when the rest of the car was restored. A few upgrades include a Summit Racing intake manifold and 4-barrel carburetor, as well as a set of long-tube headers, so its considerably more powerful than the original 190 horsepower. Finned valve covers are a traditional Z/28 look, although these, along with the air cleaner, are from Edelbrock. Color-matched blue trim, a big chrome radiator shroud, and a big aluminum radiator help with the well-loved vibe under the hood. Underneath, its clean and solid, with a fresh rebuild on the front end so it tracks like a cruise missile today. A new dual exhaust system sounds amazing, so even if it isnt exactly an LS6, it certainly roars like one, and subframe connectors reinforce the body tub. The original alloy wheels show virtually zero curb rash and wear 215/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials all around. With $18,000 worth of receipts, this is a quality second-generation Z/28 that has lots of upgrades that make it fun to drive today without removing its 1970s soul. Call today!
