I did major restoration on this car while working in Phoenix, AZ. Originally a gold on white, bucket seat console car with a 383-4 barrel and a 727 automatic transmission, 80k miles on the clock. The owner wanted curb appeal, so the exterior was made perfectly straight and painted bright red with a clear coat and the interior was redone in black. The car was completely disassembled and put on a rotisserie to access all areas underneath. While not a completely stock restoration, most components were restored as close to original configuration as possible.
|Evidence of pretty straight body work :-)|
|All engine components were cleaned and painted or re-plated.|
|Rebuilt date-coded alternator, black phosphate plated camber adjusting bolts on fender apron.|
|Note correct blackout treatment on radiator yoke, also correct paint application on the grill specific to 500 model.|
|Restored console, dash, new carpet, fancy AM radio. Yes, I see that the steering wheel is cracked....|
|Legendary door panels and seat covers installed.|
|Blue and white paint was reapplied in original pattern to the 742 3rd member. TTI exhaust pipes installed.|
