IF YOU ARE INTERESTED EMAIL ME AT: elkeebberent@ukcleaners.com . 35K original miles, Car runs and drives great, very nice custom built air ride suspension, accuair with elevel, new billet wheels, over drive transmission, power steering, power brakes, ready to show and cruise! Motor: Original 264 V8 nail head motor runs great, starts right up every time, doesn’t smoke, and has good oil pressure. 34, 955 miles on car and its original motor. Carb is freshly rebuilt, all new gaskets, floats adjusted, jets cleaned, etc. Gas pedal starter still functions correctly. Car barley leaks anything, maybe a quarter size drop of oil after a few days. Original paint and decals on motor look great for original. New plugs, new wires, recent petronix electronic ignition, cap, rotor, and coil. (no longer uses points) fresh oil change, and oil filter has been converted to spin on style. Original oil bath breather has been painted gloss black with a hint of yellow pearl, it has also been converted to a paper style element instead of oil. Motor is all stock, with the exception of ignition and flow master muffler, motor sounds good and has a nice little lope to it as these old nail heads do. The motor runs great, its not a 500hp power house by any means, but pulls the car around fine for weekend cruising. Car has original power steering that is smooth and easy to turn. Transmission: The original hydramatic and torque tube is long gone, and has been replaced with a 200r4 overdrive trans out of a 84 cutlass. There is a $800 mounting plate that connects late model trans to original nail head motor. Custom trans mount was built, factory shifter is hooked up (on column) and trans shifts as it should. Converter lockup is on a switch on the dash, and car runs nice low RPM on the freeway. Brakes: Four wheel power disk brakes. Front end has replacement spindles that use a 80’s G body rotor and caliper, rear end has “right stuff” disk conversion that uses late 70s early 80s Cadillac calipers and rotors. Master cylinder is off late 70s early 80s vette and is a split reservoir. 2.5# residual valves used as well. Everything dealing with brakes is brand new, all lines (hard and soft) all calipers, rotors, residual valves, master cylinder, booster, etc, is all brand new. Car stops very well. Suspension: 10 out of 10. Many many hours were spent on suspension fabrication, and the work is exceptional. Car rides absolutely amazing. Very soft ride, plush and smooth. Not at all stiff or rigid. It gets a lot of lift, and lays down pretty low. All fender well tubs are stock, not cut up or tubbed out. Car rests on factory bump stops or collapsed suspension (when aired out), and does not rest on tires to fender, and car can be rolled/moved with zero air in suspension. The shock part numbers are for a 68 c10 chevy so vehicle weight is similar, replacements will be easy to order, and ride can be fine tuned with stiffer/softer shocks if desired. Rear: All the original two link and torque tube were removed, and a full custom soft mounted two link was built. The entire frame rails were plated with 5/16 steel from the beginning of the “x” part of the frame, all the way back to over the axle. This adds strength for the new link mounts and air bag mounts. The link bars are hand built with 1.5” .25” wall DOM tubing that is extremely stout. All other brackets and mounts are .25” steel. All rod ends are adjustable. Rear end can be moved from side to side, front to back, pivoted, and pinion angle can be adjusted. Also most rod ends are grease-able. The rear axle is a 69 camaro 8.2” 10 bolt with 3.08 ratio non posi. Gears looked good, fluid was changed, new brake lines on axle, new disk brake conversion on axle, and all original tabs were ground off and smoothed out and new brackets installed. The link bars are very long and bags are mounted on bar, which both factors give the car a great ride and a lot of lift. 2600# air lift dominator bags are used. Front: front suspension uses factory control arms with the original lower spring perches reworked. Rivits were drilled out, lower plate removed, and a new steel plate was bolted in the control arm for bag to mount to. Upper bag mount is a traditional cup that bolts in. Spring p
