Lakewood Blowproof steel bellhousing, Custom drive

Int/ext: The car was redone, repainted and reupholstered
about 7 years ago. It has the customary dings and
drag radial quarter panel “sand blasting”. This is not
a show car, per say, just a weekend hot rod
(although I drive it to work now and then). It did not
have a frame-off restoration although there’s no
visible frame rust. The paint, 2 stage polyurethane,
is still good. It probably could use another
paint job, depending how critical you are.

Pictures are available upon request.. You don’t want to know how much I have invested.

That's one great looking machine. I know it will haul, bacause I put a LS7 454 in the 77 Vette I had (hard to keep it in a straight line). But it was fun. Good luck with the sell.
