Bought this car from the original owner almost exactly 1 year ago. Over the summer we did a ton of work to it to get it back on the road...had not been driven since 1999 by the original owner. Its a 68 Lemans 350 HO, 3 speed heavy duty manual trans, 3:36 Safety trak rear, ride and handling package, deluxe seat belts, tinted glass, PS, PB, bucket seats. Original Meridian Turquoise paint still on it, special ordered Ivy gold interior. 124,000 miles, engine runs like new...never rebuilt. Mechanicals all done, now I will be recovering seats, new carpet and headliner this winter/spring. Being from Minnesota, its hibernating for a while now.

Love this, very cool!
Some guys they just give up living
And start dying little by little, piece by piece,
Some guys come home from work and wash up,
And go racin' in the street.
