The power and torque of these cars led to the necessity of a “tie down” in the engine. This car eliminates this unsightly addition with the installation of 1000HP heavy duty motor mounts.
The magnificent engine is highly dressed to showcase its beauty and performance – including chromed pulleys and radiator cover – basically every chrome option available. Showcasing the engine is a brand new Pypes Performance exhaust system. A powerful ‘rumble’ without the annoying ‘drone’ that makes conversation difficult.
The interior of this car is awesome. It has the original Grey and Black upholstery and headliner – all intact and in wonderful condition. This car is fully gauged with column mounted Boost and Knock gauges and console mounted Tachometer, oil pressure and radiator temperature gauges - all illuminated for a breathtaking display. The functional Scan Master provides ‘flight recorder’ real time data of the car’s performance. The new Kenwood KMM-BT222U radio is Blue Tooth enabled and linked to a Crunch Mosfet X475 300W Audio Amplifier connected to Kicker Impulse speakers box mounted in the trunk for exceptional dynamic sound. The safety features include full shoulder and hip seat belts. Enjoy the added (removable) beverage and storage console and matching comfort cushion for the mid rear seat.
The body is in show condition with the addition of replacement one-piece bumper filler panels (originals prone to warp and crack) and LED high-intensity headlamps - a huge benefit in function and looks. The trunk is fully dressed with side panels and lid panels for an exceptionally clean look.
Sinister, fast and highly desirable – this Grand National is everything a classic muscle car should be.
