A near perfect car with a few areas that could be improved:

· Engine and transmission are not perfectly sealed – small leaks from each.

· Typically of many small block Chevy’s – a bit of piston slap noise at cold idle.

· No jack, no spare, no parking brake system.

Driving experience:

· This car both takes you back all while enjoying the many upgrades.

· A real head turner – expect attention!

· Look, sound, smell (yes – carb SBC engine runs rich) all great sensory inputs

· Feel is very unlike a 1975 car. The suspension, tire/wheel, and alignment give a very precise handling experience – steering inputs are immediate and responsive. This actually takes some getting used to if you are expecting a 44 year old driving experience.

Why am I selling:

· This was a fun project and fun to drive but time to “thin the herd” and move on to the next “thing.” I’ll be looking for a weekend trip car with equal cool-ness but more creature comfort for road trips.
