Real 442, documented, #s matching! Rare factory air with a 4-speed. The manual trans cars were 25 hp more! The original owner of 29 years kept more records on this car than the KGB did on foreign intelligence! It's an amazing 88,000 mile survivor that's loaded with options. Fully documented including its original order form, bill of sale, window sticker, protect-o-plate, owner's manual, service history, and ownership history. The extensive paper trail is equally impressive as the car itself. .....
She was a rarity right from the start. It was so adorned that the second owner cared for the car 22 years until it was sold in 2019, then underwent a professional restoration (with over 500 pictures included on USB drive) that preserved the wonderful original condition of this car. Although it was recently treated to a QA1 suspension for a much improved ride. What a rare opportunity to own such a fine piece of automotive history!

EXTERIOR: What a slick looking car! It has been professionally repainted its factory original Jade Green metallic color with optional white stripes flanking each fender. It was then sanded and polished to a smooth and reflective finish. The vinyl top was replaced. All the panels are properly aligned with good gaps all the way around. The doors close easily like a new car. The mostly original trim still has a lustrous shine to it. The front and rear bumpers have been rechromed. The grille, headlight bezels, and taillights are original and in great shape. All the glass is original except the windshield. Beautiful 14 inch chrome SS1 rims are wrapped in reproduction Firestone Redline tires that are actually radials!

INTERIOR: This interior is 100% original with exception of the headliner, sun visors, and Retro Sound stereo (original included in the trunk)! The authentic front bucket seats are in fantastic condition and show just the slightest bit of patina. The factory center console sits proudly between the front seats and look amazing. The Hurst shifter is original and says 442 right on it! The rear seat is also in remarkable condition. It has the original seat belts all the way around. The factory door panels are in exquisite shape. The dash pad is free of any imperfections as is the rest of the dash. The original gauges are in place and there are currently 88,159 actual miles on the odometer. It is equipped with optional Tic Tok Tach and rally gauges from the factory. It still retains the very rare and original 8-track tape player. The original radio was replaced with a Bluetooth and SiriusXM capable digital radio by Retro Sound. The headliner and visors were professionally reupholstered. The carpeting and floor mats are original and in outstanding condition. The dome light and kick panel lights are in working condition.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Wow! Lift the hood and be mesmerized by the factory original, #'s matching 400 engine with 4 barrel carburetor. It has been removed and completely rebuilt by professionals during restoration then dyno tuned to perfection. It has been neatly repainted and still has its original air cleaner. The factory air conditioning has been retrofitted to R-134A. It also features power steering and brakes. The original radiator was re-cored. It has electronic wipers and the squirters are hooked up. The brake master cylinder and booster have been upgraded. The underside of the hood is complete with insulation. The fender wells and firewall are painted their correct satin black, and the original cowl tag is in place.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The underside of the trunk lid and jamb are painted Jade green just like the body. Reproduction stickers have been added and the optional luggage lamp is working. The weatherstrip has been replaced. The trunk pan metal appears to be solid and original with factory spatter finish paint. It has a full-size spare tire, jack assembly, and rubber mat included. The original radio and a couple other extra parts are currently being stored in the trunk.

UNDERSIDE: The underside has been neatly preserved, maintained, and upgraded with bolt on parts to enhance the driver experience. The steering components have been upgraded with a Ridetech steering kit that includes center link, idler arm, tie rod ends/adjusters, and jam nuts. The entire front suspension has been upgraded with QA1 components and includes adjustable coil over shocks, tubular upper and lower control arms, and sway bar. The rear suspension has been upgraded with QA1 components as well and includes adjustable coil over shocks, lower trailing arms, adjustable upper trailing arms, rear sway bar and adjustable frame supports. The result of all the suspension work is essentially a pro touring ride quality. The front brakes have been upgraded with a Leed power disc brake conversion kit and new lines also. The rear brakes are drums, and the emergency brake is hooked up. The entire dual exhaust system has been replaced and sounds fantastic when flowing through the correct polished trumpet style exhaust tips. The gas tank appears to be original, but the fuel lines have been replaced. Looking up at the rebuilt numbers matching 400 engine everything looks fresh and there are no visible leaks. Same goes for the M20 Muncie 4 speed manual transmission. It has been totally rebuilt and looks very clean. The 12 bolt posi rear end is original to this car. The frame and floors are solid and look fresh with black paint.

SERVICE: Our team of professional mechanics has completed a thorough inspection of this vehicle and they only had to replace the heater valve. This car was very dialed in when we purchased it!

This car was lovingly cared for since day one then received a thorough restoration preserving its originality! The numbers matching 400 engine, 4 speed manual transmission, factory air conditioning, and 12 bolt posi rear end transfer this car to investment grade status! Wait, you can have fun and be financially smart too?

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership.
