Been in my family a long time. My dad bought her from the original owner in 1962.
If I drive her much this year she'll roll over 75k miles

All original except for paint.
283 4bbl power pack 220HP with a powerglide

She is a thing of beauty! Can't wait to see her on display at Call of the Tropics.

Thanks!

Yeah. This one is still as it was new. Never been apart.
I rebuild the carb every few years. Modern gas is hell on accelerator pumps for some reason.

It's about time to do a rebuild and freshen some other things up as well. I'll keep it like this as long as I can though... She's only original once.
