Lot Details & Additional Photographs
VIN: 579M06879 Mileage: 51,500

with a 371-cu.in. Rocket V8 equipped with the J2 3x2v package producing 300 horsepower, Hydra-Matic transmission, power steering and brakes, Autronic eye auto headlight dimming option, Cadet visor with prism, and Wonderbar Radio. Factory A/C is included but currently not installed in the car. This car is fully optioned after restoration. During restoration the J2 package was added correctly. The original intake and carburetor is included with the car.

This wonderful example has been with the current owner since 1989 and has undergone two restorations, one in 2004 and again in 2014. The car has been a driver and traveled to many car shows over the years. It was never meant to be a Concourse level car, but it certainly looks like it driving down the road. The condition of this car is amazing from the interior to the engine compartment.
Exterior in Banff Blue, with re-chromed trim. Interior in Sapphire Blue Metallic and Banff Blue, correct blue material for the seats, and an appropriate carpet in blue to match.
