History
Bought it in 1988 with 45,000 miles on it. All original numbers matching car. Real SS, 3rd owner. Have made some changes to the car over the years, the numbers don't match anymore but, that doesn't matter to me because when I bought it a 72 SS with the stock L48 350 didn't seem like it would really ever be worth much in its stock form and I wanted to go racing.
