This is the result of a year long restoration with mild "resto-mod" intentions, many tasteful upgrades were done. Completely tore down and stripped/blasted, any rust concerns were cut out and replaced with new panels(front floors, toe boards, lower quarters, and left rear shackle area. Entire car inside and out was epoxy primed, body worked, urethane primed and extensive blocking, painted with high end base coat(including custom two tone stripes) and then cleared. All body lines, panel straightness, fit and finish concerns and body gap quality emphasized to show quality standards. Re-chromed OEM Ford bumpers, not all bright-work is new, but is extremely presentable given the fact that not all items on these cars are available new like Mustangs and Cameros. The interior has new dyna mat, carpet, package tray, and ALL new weather stripping. SO many other new parts and thousands of dollars spent can't begin to list it all. Only real flaws are a crack in the top of the grill by a fastener on top left side, drivers seat has a silver dollar size abrasion that is hardly visible towards the center where the bottom meets the back, and a stone chip on top of the left fender. Just want to be sure and disclose all negative so there are no disappointments from buyer. Now... with that said...let me tell you that if you are looking for something ultra sleek, different than most other muscle cars out there, something that you will NOT see a twin to at any car show, ready to get LOTS of attention and a trophy nearly everywhere you take it, than give this one serious consideration.
