I bought this car in August 2016 from the first UK owner in Edinburgh and drove it back 350+ miles to just north of London. The previous owner had owned the car just over a year after having imported the car from Arizona where that owner had been in possession of the car for 30 years.
During the course of its life in Arizona it was built to a mild street/strip spec and regularly driven ¼ mile at a time at the fella’s local strip running low 12 second passes on the built, high compression 350 that was in it at the time. This engine stayed in the car until a year in to my ownership when I decided I’d like something that was a little more street friendly and usable so I purchased a new Blueprint Engines 383 Stroker from Nebraska and had it shipped over by STS Imports
This was installed by Paragon American in December 2017. I’ve since put about 1500 fault free miles on it. It’s more powerful than the old engine and with much better street manners. She gets used most nice weekends, has only seen rain if I’ve been caught out in it and is it’s always garaged at home.
The car retains all of its original sheet metal and is still wearing the factory paint. She is rust free head to toe and needs absolutely nothing. She starts on the button every time and does what she’s supposed to do without question. Everything works as it should.
She comes with the original Protect-O-Plate and partial build sheet.
The spec is as follows:
- Blueprints Engines 383 Stroker
- 700r4 Transmission with lockout
- Transgo Shift Kit
- 2400rpm Torque Converter
- 4.10:1 Rear Gear
- 10 Bolt Eaton Clutch Style Locker
- Traction Bars
- Subframe Connectors
- Front Discs/Rear Drums (manual)
- Line Lock (operated through horn with activation switch under dash)
- Power Steering
Recent work includes:
- New master cylinder
- New drum cylinders
- Header gaskets
- 4 new tyres within the last 1000miles
She also comes with a spare pair of steels wrapped in Hoosier slicks.
Feel free to call to discuss the car further and ask any questions.
