ALL ORIGINAL BLACK LEATHER INTERIOR, LIKE WE TRAVELED BACK TO 1967.
Over 40 hours was spent detailing the exterior and interior components. Everything was hand cleaned and preserved to maintain its originality.
The leather is still soft, like the day it rolled off the showroom floor.
ALL ORIGINAL CHROME AND GRILL
All chrome is factory original, and in mint condition after over 53 years. Even the grill retains its original luster. The original black lacquer paint still retains its mirror like finish.........simply amazing!
THE WAY IT ALL BEGAN
One of the best parts of being such an enthusiastic Classic Car Collector is having the chance to share my hobby and passion with others all over the world. We were fortunate to come across this father/son one owner classic that had been very well cared for, during its first 53 years. Cosmetically, the car "showed" like it was a 10 year old car, which had never been in an accident or misused. We located the original broadcast sheet under the drivers seat which confirmed the originality of this vehicle. The "certicard" along with the owners manual was still in the glove box, untouched and in mint condition. The objective was simple: preserve the car and its originality.
My brother and I did the interior and exterior detailing. The mechanical and electrical preservation work was performed by Master Mechanic and Mopar Specialist, Dan Juhasz. Dan is co-founder of Accurate Auto Tune located in Cranford, New Jersey. Dan has owned a wide variety of 1960's muscle cars, including a couple of Hemi's, Boss and Shelby Mustangs and a GTO. He is intimately familiar with Mopar mechanicals and systems from the late 1960's. His knowledge and passion for preservation shows in his work. He was an invaluable resource on this project.
