At a local car show yesterday my Biscayne was parked between a 68 SS427 Convertible and a 62 Impala SS Convertible with "Dual quad, 4 speed, positraction 409!" |
The interior is black, bucket seats and console with horseshoe shift and T400. Engine is the 385 hp version, gear ratio is 2.73. It has power windows, but no gauges or clock. It has AC but the belt was off. He is the second owner and bought the car from an older couple 31 years ago. It was the wife's car and she could no longer drive. (Little old lady who drove it to church? lol) He said when he called about the car the man was really apologetic saying that the car did not get very good gas mileage. He paid $3400 for it. He has since painted it and done some repairs. The engine was rebuilt before he got it, but had to be fixed as one hole was dead from a broken ring land. Odometer says 44,000 miles, possibly on the second time around if the motor had to be rebuilt. There are a few things not done correctly on the car, but overall it is pretty original.
He is not a computer guy, I did tell him about this site and got his phone number to pass on to Warren so he can call and get info on the car for his research.
