Exterior – The paint is only a few years old and it looks great!  The bumper chrome is not in perfect show quality but they are belied to be original. The vinyl roof is also only a few years old and in great shape!  Trim, glass and emblems are all in very nice condition. The flip up headlights work flawlessly and so do all of the exterior lights.

Mechanical – The 302 sounds amazing, runs amazing and is reliable with no overheating or concerns.  This car can be driven daily, sit in traffic or a parade with no concerns.  Front power disk brakes!  The C4 shifts very crisp and firm as it should.  There are no noises beyond the sound the dual Flowmaster exhaust makes.  The 302 is stock with only the addition of a 4 barrel intake and carburetor.  Steering is tight, brakes and tires are great.  The heat blows hot and the air conditioning blows cold.

Overall the car runs, drives and operates as it should.  This car is in great mechanical and cosmetic condition.  Everything works, its reliable and fun.  Come check it out!
