ONLY 5,258 L72 Big Block 427/425 hp motors produced in 1966. Black interior. 4-speed transmission.  All four original T3 headlights (that work).

On Aug-21-14 at 14:00:13 PDT, seller added the following information:

I have had this car for 8 years now. I took it off the frame and took two full days and wire wheeled the entire frame (NO RUST) just years of dirt and grime. In the corners I lightly bead blasted those areas. The correct Vin # stamped in the frame was in perfect condition that matches the car. The 411 posi-rear end is in the car, also the special HD front brake brackets were still in place. The tach is the correct RED line. The Gauge bezel is in great shape. I had the seats recovered professionally and the engine has been completely over-hauled correct NCRS restoration, 4 bolt and 427.

I have a passion for old cars and have restored about 30 + the last two (pictures attached) the first new owner said (and I quote) WOW I just have found my new keeper. The other owner said the car was in a far better rebuild than he could have ever imagined. He went on to WIN FIRST place in AZ. @ a predominantly Chevy show, the 1st FORD to ever win FIRST place (picture attached). This is a 1966 is a REALLY NICE car with integrity and presents its self VERY well. I bought a Mosport green coupe in 1973 and sold it to my cousin and he would never sell it back to me. So I went out and found another one BB this time. I took the last 8 years of my life maliciously restoring this baby to keep it, but I now have another project to start and this friend must go. Let me make this perfectly clear, it is not perfect, but I have never seen a perfect old car ever. Nice but not perfect.  

Attached is a picture of the over $70,000.00 of receipts in restoring this beauty. Email for some HIGH resolution pictures for your consideration. I have several friends and car buffs that you could call & get their honest opinion of this classic.    

Give me a call I LOVE QUESTIONS!

God bless Tim Francis
