History I have owned this car for 21 years..It was brought up to Canada from a little old lady in Atlanta Georgia..It was in very nice original condition but a little tired...

I had the car repainted it's original diamond blue colour with a new black vinyl roof...I had intentions of making the car into a 68 1/2 Cobra Jet clone so I had the hood stripe painted on and added a hood scoop..The C stripes on the sides are painted on as well..

Interior

Nothing fancy about the interior..Basic black vinyl with a factory console..I did install some autometer gauges in the top 3 pods to keep an eye on the engine vitals...An ancient Mallory tach sits on the steering column but will likely soon be replaced..

In-Car Entertainment
Am radio and tachometer..haha
