Black Bettie — CLASSIC ride fun to own. I enjoy taking it to car shows in the spring and summer and meeting with the other different owners. Lots of fun. Looking forward to doing more with this great collector car. Always something to do.

She Is A Beauty — Its a spectacular head turner that's loads of fun, fast, and comfortable for a 50 year old car. I built it to drive from a very original well maintained rust free undamaged car and use it as a get around car and to take to the local show off galleries.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros

Orignal 289 engine, red convertable with automatic white top (great condition),  twin exhausts, has new tires, new battery, clean engine, bench seats (not bucket), has 1966 dash with cassett player.  Car cover keeps it from fading and is kept is garage when not out on the road.

Cons

Needs a little brake work but drives and stops more than satisfactorily.  May have brake work improved before or upon sale.

1 Red Hot Of A Car. — The only dislike was that there is no air conditioning, but the convertible takes care of the air. Excellent heating. There are no repairs other than ordinary oil changes, tire rotation and inflation. A carburator kit (gaskets, etc) was just put on the car 1 week ago. Cranks up and lets you go on a pleasure ride of your life.

If You Got A Garage, This Is A Great Choice For A Classic (antique Soon). — This '65 took me 3 years to assemble. Most of the pieces are stock. I did all the work myself, saving thousands of dollars on labour. The motor was an over heating 289, which I just changed to a 302 (2010). I had an extra engine, from my '79 5.0, that has only about 20,000km, so I used it. Perfect fit exactly the same mountings. The engine to transmission gaskets (steel plate) were different so the original '65 one was used. '79 has slightly different bell housing. I also just put a 4 bbl Holley carb, with a stock 4 bbl 289 intake manifold, on the 302 motor, and had to change over, all the covers & pans. As far as I know, so far everything is good and powerful. All the steering and suspension is also new, and this car rides rails, if you know what I mean. I usually put only 100-200 miles a year, since I bought it in Sept of 2004. On an average of 1 tank of gas a year). But this year (2011) I put 2500 miles on it, drove to the Okanagan and back, with no problems. It usually spends most of its life, hiding in the back yard, under a carport, collecting dust. This is the best car for me I love to drive it, but because of winter, it winds up hiding in the back yard for 6-8 months at a time. I have 2 other cars blocking my only route out, so it takes some planning, permits & aircare. I used to be scared to drive it in the rain, (boo hoo hoo, ha ha), because it might rust or even worse melt. But in the summer of 2011 I got some waterproof paint put on it. 1st time I paid someone else to do a job for me. The car is hot and sounds real good. Hard to believe it's mine. I didn't used to have it in the driveway much, fearing it will get stolen. But now I'm not too worried, added some anti theft devices, only I know about. Acceleration: is decent now (like being in a plane), Brakes: are excellent, stops on a dime. But it seems, I have to adjust the brakes on a yearly basis. Handling excellent (not lowered, actually higher than stock) Suspension and steering better than stock, decent, all new. This year (2011) added some beefy sway bars front and rear. The car does not tip at all. Exhaust: Long tube Headers, 2.5" exhaust, Flowmaster Super 44 mufflers, too loud feel the thunder... added a catalytic converter on each side, softened the sound and took the stink away of carbon monoxide, then 2.25" tail pipes, coming out the rear valance. Body: Not all body parts fit snug or flush, but reasonably close. Remember to make sure no windshield leaks, use the appropriate sealer for your climate. Interior: has new upholstery on front buckets and original on back seat. New carpets, underlay, kick panels, dash pad, glove box, instrument cluster bezel, arm rests, door handles, window cranks, doorsill chrome, door & window seals, package tray, etc. I think this car cost me a total of about $12,000, it's unofficially appraised at 21 thousand now. I'll be drivin' it every year for 3-4 months. I stripped down my '79 5.0 and sold several pieces on ebay, and locally. (the '79 got interior rot). Recommend to a friend: *NO* I'm jealous, get a chevy.
