$11k OBO. Original AZ car. Two owner. Was 350 2 barrel with Jetaway trans. 2.78 non Posi O 12 bolt. 98k original miles. Hardtop. Extremely solid car. Both front fenders have rust holes in bottom , but an easy fix. Everything else floors, doors, trunk, frame, rear window, decklid have zero rot or repair from rust. This would be a very easy repaint due to basically zero body work. Original white with Teal interior. Painted Pearl white years ago. Original air car that still works. Power drum brakes, Power steering. Right now after messing with jetting and variable timing I set in distributor its getting 13 miles to the gallon. This has been my daily driver for 3 months now. Headliner is nice with only separation near front window. Back seat is nice. Front seat has good upholstery, but bad springs. Carpet is shot. Everything works on car except clock, it has a mind of its own. Works for a minute hear and there. When I think of more I will add.

NOW FOR THE BAD

Just started with a rod knock. I drive it everyday still and holds 60 psi running down highway.
The rear main rope seal started leaking bad and made for knock.
Front torque converter seal leaks on trans. Not bad. Trans surprisingly works perfect.
I run the car 70 MPH and cruises very nice.
Cracked Windshield
Driver vent window has broken hinge and is secured in place. Have not found 1 yet


The goal was to rebuild 455 a T400 and install, but I dont have the time to build 1 ASAP to swap over. Rod knock killed my ideas
