The car has been registered in California since 1981.

The car has been taken down to bare metal, the glass removed and repainted, all new rubber seals throughout, new front seats, dashpad, carpet, rear window louvers, etc. The entire drivetrain has been rebuilt, including the front end, steering box and rear end.
The doorpanels and headliner are original and in excellent condition. The original radio is available with the car. This BOSS 302 was built in Dearborn and therefore benefits from the trunk lid holding rod.
The under carriage is original and is utterly amazing. We invite you to review the photos showing no rust, very little oil and no significant dirt build up. The undercarriage has never been detailed.

Furthermore, in the past ten years he has not washed the car with water, but instead detailed it with a duster and polishing cloth after taking it to car shows and carefully recovered it with a car cover after each use. It is very obvious that this car has been loved and cared for its entire life.
