Eye Catcher — I really enjoy driving this car since I have had the seats totally rebuilt & recovered. It is quite peppy with a rebuilt 350 and handles great since the entire suspension has been re-done. It always generates interest when I take it to a cruise-in or just to the grocery store!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

This is a 350 hp-350 cu. in. 4 spd. car w/AC ,T-Tops and a drop out rear window, one of only a few yrs. that had this option. It is a number matching Red on Red Orig. car but is driven quite often, not a trailer queen.

Cons

This is a 11 to1 compression rate motor & really likes 103 octane leaded fuel, @ the pump I'm paying around $7.80 a Gal. for gas, repairs seem to occur often and to get them done right can be costly

Not A Supercar Like A Ford Gt Or An Aero But Right Up There With Cobra's, Etc. — These old vette's will smack you back in the seat and spin the meats right thru third gear if you hole shot them, & there's nothing like cubic inches & high compression to make you smile, the Muncie 4spd. Rock-Crusher trans will jolt your teeth in every gear, these were more of a straight line car but it does handle suprisingly well in the corners as long as you keep your foot in it, give it too much & it will swap ends on you in the blink of an eye so it's not a car that you want to let get out in front of you. If you get too complacent, you'll be buying body parts. but it a gas to drive.

Pros

Fun quick lot of power

Cons

front brakes leak, carburetor floats stick

Quick Through The Gears — I love this car because its a coupe. It's fast and can get you were you want to go fast. It's 350 cubic inches makes sure that they are all there. It's Muncie M-20 transmission makes sure that the power gets to the pavement. Handles good but need to change the front brake seals because they leak from not using the car a lot. All around fun car.

Bad Ass Baby — my childhood dream car-finally got it-completely original- needs a new paint job, but it still turns heads everywhere I take it. It is truly cash in the carport- rally sport pak with removable hard top convertible-soft top built in. What else can I say? She's bad to the bone!!!
