Rochester Fuel Injection and 3-Speed Manual Transmission. has owned the car since 1994. He purchased it while still living in Southern California after it had been previously restored. The work had been done for and by that owner starting in 1984 and along with the car. the owner provided a photo album of the car being disassembled. restored and reassembled. Many of the date codes that are normally covered by other assemblies were photographed and added to the albums which add to the proof of the originality of the vehicle. These photo albums come with the car. The car was also originally sold with the Radio Delete Option. The work done was frame off and complete. The photo albums show that there had been some cosmetic damage to the right front fender of the car. but upon our inspection. we did not see signs of the repairs. The entire original drive train was rebuilt before assembly and the car painted. The interior was redone and a set of American Racing Mags installed but the stock wheels and hub caps were kept and are included with the car. The car has the factory hardtop. along with the soft top. which was reconditioned and comes with the car. An inspection of the photo albums show how complete the work was and the level of preparation that was preformed. The car was represented at the time of this earlier sale as being matching numbers and after our examination. can be confirmed as can be seen in the prints in the photo album and the images we have taken for this sale. After examining the car front to rear and top to bottom. we havephotographically documented the date codes and serial numbers that verify the correct matching numbers of the complete car. The engine serial numbers cast on the heads and seen in the images are correct for the production date of the car. The original VIN plate that was on the driver’s door jam was replicated and replaced as can be seen in the images. The original VIN plate is also shown before the restoration in the photo albums and comes with the car. The numbers taken from the car and shown in the images are listed here: Chassis VIN# E57S102920Engine Serial on block# F305ELCylinder heads # 3731539Transmission# 3845122Transmission side cover # 3731911Transmission tail shaft# 3737450Rear Axle# 3735899Rearaxle code # AH3 05Fuel Injection Serial# 1582Fuel Injection unit# 7014360 & 7014361 & 7014362Delco-Remy Generator# 1110905 7128Wiper Motor# 5047991 There are also images supplied by the previous owner. in the photo albums. during the prior restoration showing date codes of different body panels that were correct for the production period matching the chassis VIN#. Cosmetically the car is in excellent condition for having been refurbished 30 years ago. The paint has some very minor flaws that are a result of time and the 6500 miles showing. Each of the front fenders has a couple of stars in the paint from the underneath side caused by rocks coming off of the tires as it was driven. The front driver’s door fit is very slightly low and possibly may be adjusted. The paint is very good. but shows some buffing marks on the hood and trunk. There are some very minor scratches on the front and rear under panels beneath the bumpers. but no signs of impact or curbing. The hard top rear glass is not fitting correctly in the upper left corner. Not knowing why. we do not feel comfortable attempting to seat it. The front left hard top latch also needs a rivet and adjustment. The paint on the chassis and drive train is not as good as the top of the car and there spots of metal showing through on several areas such as the rear differential. chassis rails and suspension parts but no rust. The engine block is slightly stained from use and there is a very small drip from the rear main seal area. The rear pinion seal has a very small weep. leaving a quarter size spot after being parked. Overall. the car has been driven. is wearing 30 year old work and looks outstanding today. Mechanically. the car is excellent. The car starts instantly. warms to a normal idle and does not exhibit any signs of oil use in the exhaust system or smoke when fully warmed. Drivability is excellent with all controls to factory standards or better. The use of modern radials on the aftermarket wheels is a large improvement over the stock wheels and bias ply tires also supplied with the car. Brakes. steering and clutch are excellent and as new or better. Acceleration is very good with no hesitations or flat spots in delivery. Allgauges and lights work as expected. Included with the car are the stock wheels and stock hub caps with Bias Ply tires mounted. An inspection prior to bidding or a purchase is welcome and recommended. Better to ask before then after.
