Multiple best of show awards/trophies. This car has won several Mopar car shows as well. Purchased new by Martin Snoey of Washougal Washington. Original build sheet, owners manual, jack, vehicle ID card "Certicard", fender tag, and maintenance card (located on back of glove box door). Documented build with pictures through out the restoration. I have a 3 ring binder full of pictures taken during the restoration process that is included with the sale. $15,000 show quality paint job in 70's Mopar color Pink Panther/Moulin Rouge (paint code FM3).

PAINT / BODY- The car was completely dissembled to a shell and stripped to bare metal. Very little rust repair was needed. The car received a full color change to the factory Mopar color of Pink Panther/Moulin Rouge (paint code FM3). A top of the line two stage paint was used. The body was then color sanded and polished to a show quality finish. $15,000 was invested in the paint and body work alone. New front and rear bumpers as well as various exterior trim pieces. The body lines are are arrow strait. The door and body gaps are better than what would have came from the factory. All new body/window seals and gaskets. The engine bay, trunk area, interior, door jambs, ect. were all given the same attention to detail and were all repainted. This car is 100% rust free. The undercarriage was cleaned, detailed and undercoated. All of the glass retains its original markings and is original to the car. New 7x15 and 8x15 Cragar SS wheels. New Grand Am tires.

The front and rear seat upholstery was all professionally reupholstered. New seat padding. Rebuilt heater box, new blower fan, and heater core. Original day/night rear view mirror, remote side mirror, and Coronet 500 dash emblem. The original steering wheel is in mint condition.

All trophies come with the car. All work was professionally done. The car runs and drives like new. The motor has plenty of power, the exhaust sounds awesome.
