Export Car: Non Export Car
Engine details: Non original engine / date code, or correct casting - original engine had been swapped out before my dad purchased the car. Replaced w/ a 1965 /66 283 CI - using parts from original eng. ie: manifold , Carb(s) Distributor , Generator, etc. in 1980. The Trans had also been replaced with a Munci M21 4- speed at some point but it is now fitted with an original type shifter.
Other details: 3rd Flight award winner, score 78. 2 judged in 1999 , ALL original chrome and trim, very clean. This was NOT a body off restoration. Frame was cleaned and repainted. Shows very well and a real nice driver. RPO 686 brake shoes are no longer on the car. They were removed in the 1980's during a complete brake overhaul which included drums and standard components. I do possess the metallic brake shoes and springs. She sports Bias Ply tires, which are now B.F. Goodrich 7.10 x 15 on the wide wheel option. Possibly may have been a radio delete car... evidence also suggests heater was added in later , and I installed a correct radio to replace a newer one which was hogged into place. If I could have located the correct block off plates I would have removed both. A donor 59/60 supplied the parts needed from a local classic car restoration shop.
 
Car history:
Here's my & her story, Family owned for the past 40 years. ( 1978- current ) purchased by my late father from either the 1st or 2nd owner, this is unclear and un important to me now. Car had been off the road for a number of years. It was a dying fathers gift to his only child, and a stretch for a family with a low income. Sale price was about $2,800 / 3K . Reputed to have been used as a race car by a previous owner(s)which point in that direction. Original paint scheme included two stripes down the hood. Car had a number of HD options either factory/dealer equipped or added by previous owner(s) , including 5 leaf rear springs ( still have stored ), RPO 276 wide wheel option , 4.11: 1 posi traction axle ratio, fast steering adaptor, optional duel pulley fan belt with idler, & explosion proof bell housing. Restored between 1980-1983 by myself, Car when purchased had abt. 28K original miles, little over 38K now. All original components were still in car then ( 1980) exhaust, shocks, springs, interior, etc. I took on the project as a 17 / 18 year old after my father passed away. All work except for the paint and dash pad were done by myself including rebuilding the replacement eng. I Don't think I did a bad job as a kid with limited knowledge and a very limited budget.. It was my primary transportation to and from High School for 2 years...and I left the church in it with my bride. It has been a big part of my life, and it will remain in the family now and hopefully passed on to one of my daughters. I have been a NCRS member for the past 38 years # 9448, and a new member of the S.A.C.C. Thanks for viewing . Be Well and Happy & Safe motoring to ALL!!
