Got 'em - Hell, we even got the glove box grab bar for you and a serviceable headliner. See the attached pictures for the full collection of parts.


ENGINE

Behind the roar of this classic is a 421 CI Automatic Tri-Power engine (Engine code of YJ 348985) that was originally offered in 1965 & 66 Bonneville/Grand Prix, Catalina/Star Chief, and 2+2. Presently the engine has a 4-barrel carb and it

starts easily, idles smoothly, and is smoke free.


Engine compartment is VERY clean from engine out restoration while engine was being rebuilt. Car also has a new gas tank, fuel pump and carb tune up and new stock hood insulation kit. It has air conditioning plumbing & built in dash vents but lacks a compressor. Said to have a Posi-Traction rear end. We have video of the car starting, idle, and driving for interested parties.


INTERIOR

Inside this classic is an automatic aftermarket B&M pull-release shifter and we have the original center console as well. Flanking this are black front bucket seats and rear bench in fair conditions. It comes with seat belts, four armrest frames with foam cushion, and two have ashtrays, window cranks, and dome light. Trunk lid has original jacking instruction graphic. Door panels and handles (L & R inside and outside).


Whichever way you go, this antique is totally rust free, primed and only needs that last bit of elbow grease to get it roaring across the finish line. We feel this beautiful antique car was meant to be a platform for a GTO clone and it already has all of the key body features of a GTO and much of the badging.
