This car has numerous NOS parts inside and out as well as deluxe hub caps, cigarette ash trays, dome light, ignition switch, taillamps, under dash lights, under hood lights. It was an incredible challenge getting these parts for a single year car. The original 348ci engine was rebuilt by Gabriel s Racing engines in Athens GA and now features an Edelbrock intake with the 1400 performance carburetor. The oil bath filter was modified to dry type and is concealed in the original housing. The 150-amp alternator is a Cadillac NorthStar and the oil filter has been modified to spin on type. For a better fit Grady re-bent the stock aluminized exhaust system and eliminated the crossover pipe. The exhaust manifold was high-temp powered coated in cast iron grey color. To add more safety features to the car, Grady installed new 500 series CPP steering box, KYB gas shocks, front and rear, anti-sway bars front and rear, a new TH700R transmission, Air Lift air bags in the rear and new coil springs front and rear. The frame up restoration included all new bushings, mounts, upper and lower A-arms and ball joints, idler arm and tie rod ends. In factory colors, the Rio Red and Artic white paint pared with the California one piece bumpers finish off the front and rear end and body of this amazing wagon. The rear suspension was completely rebuilt with all new bushings plus new bearings and seals in the differential. A new stainless fuel tank sending unit, fuel lines and brake lines were also installed. All glass has been changed out, including the nearly unobtainable tinted rear hatch window, plus all new rubber gaskets, weather stripping, bumpers and seals were replaced throughout the car. Professionally installed power disc brakes and stock rears were included during a Vintage Air install and rebuilt original Harrison radiator. Once this nine-month restoration was complete the interior was recreated with material matching as close to the original as possible, cruise control was added, Secret Audio by Custom Sound installed, Power Windows with hidden switches, original door handles, LED taillights, three point seat belts, restored bumper jacks sound deadener throughout the entire body.
