We are proud to bring to your attention a beautiful and pretty rare color, Claret Red Metallic with only 8.5% of production coming out this way.   Besides that, it is equipped with Claret cloth interior, also a rare option at the time.   It has just sustained a high quality paint job in the original color and it looks better than it came from the factory.  With only 79K miles, everything else appears original.  Engine is the standard L48 rated conservatively at 180 HP, but with the addition of the Edelbrock intake, upgraded ignition and new straight dual exhaust, it is likely to pump up more.  Check out the pristine engine compartment featuring even the smog pump, a mandatory accessory in the era.  AC blows cold, vacuum operates properly, all gauges work... 

It comes with 2 sets of tops, the transparent glass tops and the painted ones. It is endowed with factory aluminum wheels with new lug nuts and centercaps fitted with a set of new tires with less than 1000 miles on.  Car has gone through and, according to seller, all is in working order and can be driven anywhere.

Here is your chance to enjoy a classic which has sustained a thorough refreshing by a long time enthusiast and connoisseur.  Lots of original parts and some new ones are available with the purchase.
